Question: Home schooled help:(?
My parents just started Home Schooling me and I hate it. I'm so bored!! If you are home schooled or know someone who is home schooled, how do you deal with all of your extra time? All of my friends are at school so I have nothing to do when i'm not doing work. Help?
Answer: Only boring people get bored. Are you boring? Then find something to do!
Get a volunteer position. What do you want to do when you grow up? If you want to be a nurse, look into volunteering at a hospital. If you want to work with animals, look into volunteering at the SPCA or some sort of refuge, etc. near you.
You may be able to get a part time job. It depends on the laws where you live, because some restrict minors from working during school hours. Try people you know, such as your veterinarian's office, if you do not wnat the traditional grocery store clerk type job. Also check with a daycare. Y ou might be able to count these activitiies (volunteering and job) as part of your schooling as well.
Get memberships at your local zoo, aquarium, museum, county park. Make good use of them! They are fun AND educational. Visit your library a lot.
Join a homeschool group. Visit http://groups.yahoo.com and type in "MyCity Homeschool" and I bet one will pop up that is near you! They get together for field trips, coop classes, and a variety of other activities. There are bound to be others you will make friends with, and can hang out with while your public school friends are still at school.
Take up a hobby. Perhaps you could create items to sell and earn money, maybe you could learn to knit or sew. How about gardening?
Spend your time researching colleges, so you can decide what path you want to take and what you need to do to get there. You can also research scholarships, grants, etc. that are available to you-even if it is early atleast you will have an idea later.
I hope this helps, and I wish you the best!
