back to school & raw(e)

8.24.2010

It's that time again (Already?! Didn't it seem that school just started last year?)...back to school.


Back to learning new things. Back to tests.


Back to pencils, homework, and teacher's dirty looks (I couldn't resist!). Back to reading Ancient Egyptian Literature. Okay, maybe not. But that's one of the things I have to read ;)


Back to fresh, clean notebooks. Back to textbooks.


(Above is my pink entry for Raw(e))

Back to schedules, and if you're not homeschooled, back to rushing from class to class.

Although I'm probably going to change my mind on January 24th at 1:12 pm*, I kind of like getting back to school right now. Even though I'm homeschooled (more like online schooled and self taught with my mom checking on me once a week), I'm going to try to stick to a more rigid schedule this year. We'll see if that lasts ;)

Have you started school yet? Are you glad to be back in the rhythm, or would you rather be doing anything but school?

PS I'm only 8 followers away from 300! Eight! Do you think you guys could help me make it to 300? Please? :)

EDIT: People! You've done it again! I am now at 300 followers! Eeeekkk!

  3. I can't believe school is almost here. I first need to go to sleep extremely early so I can get up. :D

    LOL -- I love being homeschooled. Perhaps I can work a schedule that allows fifty hour breaks between lessons. ;)

    Your school sounds a lot like my school. :-) I only do math online, though. The rest is books and stuff. But I mostly "teach" myself. I'm not very good at it, though. I'm also going to try to stick to a stricter schedule. :-) My brain responds pretty well to structure. Otherwise, it wanders all over the place...like it's going to start doing now if I don't finish this comment... (:-O
    Have fun with school!
    What grade are you in?

  6. I am glad to be back in school! {i'm homeschooled, too}. It seems things are really easy at the beginning of the year, but I love my new science and math, so maybe it will be good the WHOLE year!! ☺ BTW, I loved the pictures of your little sister in your last post- she is so adorable! :)
    Have a great day!
    Blessings,
    Lydia

(you know, self taught, with your mom sometimes making sure your doing your work ;) i am ready to get serious about my work though, and i absolutely love buying notebooks and binders :) love the pictures.

  9. Very nice photos. I've been a teacher for nine years and this is the first year I'm not teaching so it feels kind of strange to be at home.

  10. Holy cow! I want to make it to 100! Ha. ;)

    And yeah I go back tomorrow. Ugh. I sorta have mixed feelings- I will like the routine, but not the work. Plus I have no classes with my best friend- and i don't have lunch with her either. It sucks.

  17. Haha ya I'm guessing being home-schooled is tough but being in pubic school is no better, in fact i think it is worse :( . Your taking the easiest road to a great education (home-schooled).

  19. I ditto laurennicolelove.com's comment - your siblings are too cute!

    One of my favorite things about starting school is fresh, new, unwritten in notebooks. Mmm. What grade are you going in to? I'm going to be a junior, and we just started yesterday!

    In His Love,

  22. Congrats on 300 followers! That's exciting :)

    And I started school about 2 weeks ago, and so far its been pretty good. I like have a set schedule everyday, but every once in a while I would rather be doing something else. But good luck with your homeschooling!! :)
