Yes, I’m a Home-schooler, can you relate?

Sorry it took me SO long to post!
I haven't had much to post except my Easter dress, but I couldn't get anyone to take a picture for the short time I was wearing it. But next time I put it on I'll have SOMEONE take a picture.

But now to the point of this post, this is something I wrote yesterday,

Yes, I'm a Home-schooler, can you relate?
NOTE: This does NOT apply to all Home-schoolers

If people ask me who/what my favorite star is, I'm tempted to say Betelgeuse (pronounced beetle juice), and if they ask who that is I'd say, "It's only 1,000x bigger than our sun!!!"

My family and I randomly burst into song

I learned how to PROPERLY hold a pencil when I was 6

My favorite movies are old ones or musicals

My sister and I often quote lines off of old movies

I know that our hair and nails are made of the same substance

When I grow up I want to be a member of the NRA

If you ask a public-schooler what they like to do, most will say, (usually very dully) "Play video games." But don't ask me, it might take me an hour to explain my interests

While most teens could tell you what's new with Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, I could tell you what's new in politics and all about the swine flu

While most teens haven't even changed a diaper, I probably know more about babies than our pregnant neighbor

While others shop at Nordstrom's, I think any shirt over $5 is expensive

While others fall asleep in a warm bath, I wait in line for a cold shower

While other teens may shy away from a conversation with an adult, I can look an adult in the eyes and talk with them for hours

While other young people are thinking about going to college to get a degree and then try to get a job, I'm planning to grow up and get a full time job NO amount of training can prepare you for; being a wife and a mother.

Haha yeah!! I am a homeschooler too!
although most of it is obviously personal to you, I relate to some of it.
Someone told me that being a homeschooler was boring yesterday. What a lie!
