Yes, I am home. That's not what I mean, though.
If I am going back home, then the question is, where was I before?
I was in my public school, sitting as I watched my intelligence (or what little I had of it) wither before my eyes as we sat for an entire class period (an hour and 27 minutes, actually). Doing nothing. Doing NOTHING. An hour and a half wasted playing SOLITAIRE. And on the computer, nonetheless.
And what was the cause of this? My teacher failed to print out the pages from our project packets and we had nothing to do. Nothing.
This is not the only reason. 'The only reason what', you ask?
It is not the only reason that I am considering going back home to be home schooled for my senior year of high school.
Yes. Shocker, I know. But I had been mad at my school for awhile, and I realized about a month ago that I can actually do something about it! I can go back home and learn on my own. I was considering getting as much into my head as possible before I head off to college. And for those who don't know me (or never knew this about me), knowledge is big to me.
I have this quote on my wall and it says: "The only true wisdom is in knowing that you know nothing." And I was looking at it when I figured this out for the first time.
...and I'm not saying that my school is bad. I guess public school just isn't right for me. The irony is terrific, but I made this up: school is holding me back from learning.
But anyway, that, and with other reasons, I am just about to leave that life behind and go back home. That is, when my dad says I can, and we go visiting colleges and ask what they do with home schoolers.
Ha. I hope they let me in. I can be quite intimidating.
By the way, I was listening to this while writing this post, so I felt very...smart...writing it. Oh, and Riniel got me into Yiruma, so that is how I found this song. :)
