What’s been going on……

Hello everybody! It’s been ages since I last posted! I’ve been so busy, but now I’m back and I wanted to tell you all what had been going on. But first, how are you all doing? Are you looking forward to summer? I am. 🙂

So as most of you probably knew, I was homeschooled my entire life, including through high school. This makes high-school graduation and getting into college a bit different. First of all, I decided upon the following as my course of study in college and university.

-Two years at community college for an A.A.S. in Interior Design. 

-Then transfer to university (to which community college is an extension) and finish two more years to get a B.S. in Business Managament. 

After talking with a couple of people at the university, this option was presented: a four year program where you can earn two degrees. One major plus in the program is that because I am earning a technical degree (I.D.) I don’t need to take any of the standard “core” university classes, such as sociology and phycology. Instead of doing the typical four year route, in which you spend two years basically studying “core” classes, I get to spend them studying something I love, and something that gives me a skill to use to fund the rest of my higher education and after. I’m really excited to start it!

Usually getting into college requires an SAT or ACT, but because I am entering into community college first I only needed to take my GED, or HiSET–the high school equivalency test. Which brings me to the point of why I wasn’t posting. I was studying!

I am really happy to say that the studying payed off and I passed all five of my HiSET tests with amazing scores! The five tests were writing, reading, math, science, and social studies. Out of all of them writing was my weakest, but still a great score.

I graduated from high school on Friday May 12th. And, on the same day, passed my driving test and got my driver’s license. So, I’m done. It all happened at once, but now it’s also all finished at the same time.

Now that I’m finished with school, I want to work over the summer and relax before college starts this fall. Hopefully I’ll be able to write on this blog a lot more. I really want to. And now that I’m done with school, this blog will be more about my hobbies, and what I’m doing. I also want to write about some things I’ve learned about applying for college, scholarships and that kind of stuff; studying tips; my opinions on things.

I’d like to post at least once a week, I think I can do it!

Thanks for reading, and if you haven’t already, please follow me!

Have a great rest of your day!

A Big Impact

Was there something that occurred in my life that impacted it? I believe there was and that was the time I went to private school and what followed.

I am a homeschooler and I have always been one. However, when I was twelve years old, my family decided to try private school. My time there was one week. Then my parents withdrew me from the school and I returned to homeschool.

While in private school I learned several valuable things. The first was that I was ahead of my age in schooling. Second, that I learned a lot more with homeschooling than in private school. Third, that the lifestyle it brings (homework, late hours, little time with family, etc…) is definitely not for me.

Soon after we found the Ron Paul Curriculum and I began to study using it. This changed my life. Because of the way that the curriculum is taught I began to love studying a lot. Today I am determined to study very well and pursue a college degree.
