Happy to have been Home Educated!

Since I was born, I have been Home Educated, I absolutely loved it and wouldn’t have changed a thing about my childhood.
I believe its made me the person I am today, perhaps even a better, more open minded person at that.
When I look at young people my age nowadays, that were brought up in state education, are miserable, demanding, pretentious, arrogant, ignorant and behave like sheep. If one person says ‘swag’ 28 of them will be repeating that word throughout the rest of the day.
I grew up completely individual, and despite of where I grew up, I do have the local accent but I am no where near a clone.. The best way to describe it is, having an ant farm and only one of the ants being a red ant, that’s what I’m like.
I have a totally different outlook on life, I’m well and truly far more mature, I’m not a gossip or like every average teenage girl.
I believe that my growing up, has made me have more of an understanding of people older than me and not just socialising with those who are practically twins from other parents of me.
I’m more thoughtful too, something that a lot of young adults don’t have either.
Now, I’m not saying that all state education children are all like that, no, some of the non home ed people I know are the sweetest people, and I’m not saying that all home ed’s are lovely, some are quite the opposite.
I’m not trying to be selfish by banging my own drum of how lovely I am, I’m just telling everyone how happy alternative education has made me 🙂

  1. No, you’re totally right. I agree.
    Going to college has made me realise how lucky I was to have not gone through the secondary school system. The majority of people I know are, as you call it, “sheep” and are constantly obsessed with how they look to other people, or if they are acting “weirdly”.Everyone is the same, even if they pretend they’re not.
    I have trouble talking to people my own age because they don’t seem to “get” me. I think my home-edness sort of unnerves them, because I try not to conform and have my own interests, and see things in a different way. On the other hand, I find it far easier to talk to older people

    • no…people from school arent ‘unnerved’ by your home-edness (haha love that word), they think you’re weird.
      That’s all there is to it.
      Maybe people are proud of their ‘individuality’, and while it’s not a bad thing, to be honest, people still think you’re weird, and that’s not really going to get you far in life.

  2. ‘I don’t gossip, and I’m far more mature.’
    …let me guess… you don’t drink, you don’t smoke, you never have sex or do anything like that, because you are far too ‘mature’ to do anything so reckless and risky.
    I go to secondary school, and you obviously know fuck all about it (I mean, I go and you don’t…how would you?) because that’s only what you see from the outside.
    When you get into the school, you see that everyone is different, and nobody is a ‘sheep’ as you like to say.
    I wouldn’t normally rant about it, but I’m sick of everyone saying, ‘Oh, people who go to school are chavs, they’re complete “sheep” and they have no sense of individuality.’
    So yeah, I just wanted to get that off my chest :3

  3. Thank you for at least taking the time out to read my post and to give feedback.
    First of all though, I would like to say that I don’t think I’m too mature for anything, if I want to have a cigarette, I will have a cigarette. Also, I will have sex, but I choose to wait until I meet someone that I actually trust, I have respect for myself.
    Obviously we can both agree that we are too mature to jump out of windows :p
    Secondly, I never said the word chav, no, if I said ‘all school children turn in to bling toting chavs’ then that would have been very incorrect, because you’re all individual, but not as individual, if you see my point.
    Haven’t you noticed the trend of school children nowadays, with faces caked in makeup, a different boyfriend every week, sporting a head leaning to one side teamed up with a duck pout as a profile photo on facebook?
    I also mentioned how some of the loveliest people I know were taught in state schools.
    Anyway, that’s for the (at least) constructive criticism. Have a nice day 🙂
