nywz, there r people like that in public skool 2.wat fags.
it is a fact that if you do not involve yourself in everyday contact with people, you will not grow with the social skills needed. (if i dont go to school, i dont learn.)
some home schooled people may do this, but the majority do not get outside of their family much- and have significantly less social skills than the average person. Not all, but some.
probably the majority (posters that say they are in college at 15 - most likely you.)
Playing the jealous card is also extremely overrated.
That was one of the most pathetic attempts at an argument I have ever seen.1) Sleeping in doesn`t really change anything.2) "Wasting time in the halls." Actually, the time is used to get to classes. Oh, yes, all five minutes of time to get ready. Big waste.3) Who says we can`t?4) That is a very arrogant thing to say. Yes. Really shows your inte
And I thought her reaction was pretty darn cute.
k i know this *starts screaming * D
Guess whats on the test? EVERYTHING YOU dratING NEED TO KNOW DUMBASS!The state test isn`t on celebrity gossip, its on Science, History, Math, English - studying for it all year means you learned pretty much all the poo you need for college.
i bet she plain as jane tho.doubt she has any more conditions than the average person.
But I`m so glad I don`t go to an institute every day. One of the private schools I was supposed to go to has kids committing suicide, doing drugs, becoming sexually active, etc.It`s not my cup of tea, personally.
yeah, they`re ALL that crazy. Oh,man.
Euonym is Eminem`s sister. ;-)
Are you like....running for president or something...just made me think of their winning speeches `nall.....yeh....
Haha how do you come up with this stuff.....yeh....
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! LAURA YOU ARE ALSO IRONICALLY ON I AM BORED! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA... AND YOU ALSO IRONICALLY SAID "WHY ARE YOU SAT AROUND ON I AM BORED" HAHHAHA
i agree with slinky here (good use of teh) lauralegend; u cant exactly someone dosent have a good education because they`re on i-a-b 1st he`s a fairly new user and2nd your doing the same fricken thing!!!
also on donkdonkdonk u may be a total genius but u dont have a school life which includes teamwork or meeting new people, in fact in school u have to face certain things like bullys, its just one of those things people have to experience
And gance, you can talk all you like about how eduacated you are, but will not be able to back any of up since you are an anonymous user on teh internets, so the point is moot.
also for donkdonkdonk who said:Fourth: Honestly, we`re so much smarter than you in almost every subject. So shutup.
What an idiot. Honestly, you are so much smarter than us? I have never been homeschooled, nor do I know of anyone who has been, but what a sweeping generalisation to make!
And I`d be fairly confident in saying that I`m probably smarter than you. Yes, fair enough, you may be more nerdy, I prefer having fun and seeing friends, but at the end of the day, you need a fair balance. I would die if I was told I was going to be homeschooled. Why be on your own and away from your friends, if you can get a brilliant education WITH your friends?
Most kids didn`t have the opportunities I did when I was growing up. They get stuck in crap schools where they waste their life away with no support from the garbage school system in the USA. It`s crap in Japan and other places in the world too, but somehow they still learn the basics. At least the University system in the United States is the best in the world... if you can afford it.
By no means have I gotten where I am alone. I owe a lot to teachers, my parents, friends and many who have helped along the way. I made sure not to waste it.
If you consider a high GPA, going to college on scholarships, studying abroad, traveling the world and graduate school deluded visions of grandeur, you have a damn low standards for life. I consider this simply getting an education.<
The first sign of homeschooled kids: deluded visions of grandeur that deviate from reality.
I also was home schooled. Why? Not because there was something wrong with me, but the school nearby was such a dump and well known for being behind. The amount of problems was simpling appalling, this including knives, car theft, assault (not simple bulling here) and more. Screw that. My parents felt they could do a better job, and they were right. I have no problems socially, other than putting up with ignorant dips-hits that are produced in schools like those I mentioned above.
I hold a 3.9 GPA, go to college fully paid on scholarship, have 2 years study abroad at a top university in Japan, and have traveled all over the world for free on scholarships and been places others only read about in their outdated books. I`ve been on TV many times, and done 7 newspaper interviews concerning study I have done. I am now preparing for graduate school and a Ph.D program in Japan as well.
Yup, I suuure do regret homeschool
People don`t seem to understand that there are people like that all over, whether or not they are homeschooled makes very little difference. Most likely she is autistic. For those that don`t know what that means, autistic people are very brilliant in specific things, but in most others, especially social skills they are lacking. She was probably homeschooled so she wouldn`t be subject to bullying in school.
I am not socially inept. I am now a senior in high school, and I am taking honors classes at a community college. I have made friends there... This is my first quarter. I have friends around my neighborhood, and friends from work. I have no problems interracting with other people.
I am generally an easygoing person, things don`t normally get to me. The exception for that is when ignorant people judge my choice of education on their very limited circumstanc
I was homeschooled and I started college at age fifteen. Contrary to popular belief about homeschoolers, I do have a social life as do many of my homeschooled friends.
If you think all homeschoolers are socially awkward, you`re very ignorant. If you think everyone who goes to public school has a rollicking social life, you`re in denial.
You`re right, I`ll be sure to blame my parents when I get my Associates Degree by the time I`m eighteen. If only I could have had all those friends that every high school kid has.
HUZZAH! BUT I GET TO SLEEP IN!"
Amen to that, sista. c:I`m homeschooled too..
Girl: "Want to play ball?"Me: "Aren`t you... 15?"Girl: -twitch-Me: D:
The fact that I was in school for a large portion of my life makes me more socially adapted, but I really feel for those who have been home schooled their whole life."
It`s not healthy to get THAT close to your family and no one else, I tell ya! You gotta get blindsided by other peoples` incompatibly different outlooks on life!
GEEZ, I know!
The fact that I was in school for a large portion of my life makes me more socially adapted, but I really feel for those who have been home schooled their whole life.
Nidonemo: I was about to say something like that.And, yeah, it kind of does constitute a crime against humanity... but so do many other things people aren`t willing to take some sort of action against.
Guys: The UM at the end was her pronouncing the word the second time. It works like this:Say the word (To prove you can pronounce it correctly) --> Spell the word --> Say the word again to signify that you`re done
Either way this kid will no doubt grow up with no social skills... and in an attempt to grow them will probably fail miserably.Meh... she`s probably about 18 now anyway.Might hate her parents
Btpanther: WRONG SHE"S GOOD AT EVERYTHING CAUSE SHE CAN SPELL Maybe she could help me write an encryption algo for a C program I have in Vim right now.Imma call her.
And yeah these Spelling Bee things are an American thing, we dont have them in the UK, seems weird to me. Why`s it called a "bee" ?
doubtful, just because she is a good speller does not make her good at everything. example, could she do my vector calculus hw for me tonight? these kids are trained to be good spellers. to say that theyre good at everything is to say that tiger woods is also a really good basketball player...
What a waste.
...would that constitute as a crime against humanity?
And I`m on Prozac for depression.
HUZZAH! BUT I GET TO SLEEP IN!
when will parents realize that doing that to their kids could most likely cause them to be socially inapt?!
