One of the many reasons I wish I could go back to being home-schooled... I am not so desperately waiting for the end of the school year.

See, when ya get home-schooled, you can make it last as long as you like. Focus and get it done by 11 o'clock. Or procrastinate and stay up 'till all hours trying to finish the never-ending Saxon math (ugh).

But witch ever the way, (at least the way in my case) take as many breaks as you need, so long as the work gets done.

Well, the past has fled, and I'm stuck sitting in a classroom with a bunch of swearing idiots (sorry if I offended you), a teacher that just wants his paycheck, and a roller-coaster of grades.

But I say to myself, only...four...more...days.

Ah, yes. But within those four days is something else. The finals that prove how much you did not pay attention in class. Basically, the fate of that year rests in how good those grades are.

The second reason I wish I could go back to the home-schooled way of life... When home-schooled, I was learning to learn, not learning to improve my grades.

I mean, is that not what school is supposed to be? What good is it in the last 5 minutes of the test and you only filled in half the bubbles?

Say you randomly fill in all the correct bubbles. You get an A+ in the class, but yet you did not pay attention in the least.

But who cares? You got an A...
