// back to school tag //

hello, my friends! k.a. tagged anyone who has borrowed something from their sibling within the past week. i used my brother’s snare drum, so here i am. :)

rules:

1) thank the person who tagged you. (#shamelessselfpromo)

2) answer the questions.

3) post new questions. (or a blank copy of the old questions, if you’re too lazy to make your own (or you just love my questions).)

4) tag as many (or as few) people as you want. (try to make sure they’re still doing school!)

5) wear something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue. (i can’t confirm this, BUT I’LL KNOW IF YOU LIE, OKAY? MAGICALLY!)

6) don’t die. (death is terrible for the complexion, dearie.)

1) when’s your first day of school?

it was august 22nd, i think. so i’ve been doing school for about four weeks now.

2) what do (and don’t) you look forward to about entering the realm of the dead? uh, i mean the learned?

likes: i do a lot of doodling during class. i’ve got a pirate, a stereotypical french dude, and some spanish-inspired things scrawled over my classwork. i also like observing how the people interact with each other; it fascinates me.

dislikes: being around people for a long time makes me tired. my math teacher is a bit evil, and she makes us take a quiz everyday. (but i just transferred to a different math class and the teacher is much nicer. he didn’t give us any homework just because we were behaving so well.)

3) homeschooled, public schooled, or private schooled?

i’m doing a weird combination of homeschool and public school. every other day, i go to public school for two classes: spanish and math. i do the rest of my work at home.

4) what are your goals for this school year?

this is going to sound super screwed up, but whatever.

i have this list of things i want to do while i’m at public school, for the ~experience~ or something like that. i’ve already gotten a F (on a math quiz), so that’s one thing checked off my list! since i’m a part-time student this year, i’m not allowed to join the band or sports teams or do any of the fun things. i could probably get into a fight or get detention, but i don’t really want to do either of those things this year.

and i want to do nanowrimo again this year. i haven’t done much planning on my novel, though.

5) what’s your favorite season to school in? fall, winter, or spring?

probably winter. i love sitting in front of the fire with my schoolbooks, drinking tea and watching snow fall. during the other seasons, i’d much rather be taking pictures than staying inside to do school.

6) how is schooling going to effect your blogging?

i don’t think it will effect my blog too much. all i can think of is that if i’m falling behind in schoolwork, i might not be allowed to use the internet for a bit.

7) what’s your favorite school subject?

i love art and theatre, but i don’t have any of those classes this year.

8) your least favorite?

math, of course. and my science book is rather boring. (i’m doing this tag just to procrastinate science. i’m learning about gravitational potential energy. yay.)

9) what subject are you best at?

grammar! which might be surprising, since i don’t use capital letters.

Me during life are you kidding me

x

10) what subject are you worst at?

my F on that math quiz probably answers this one.

11) what extra-curricular activities are you planning this year (if any)?

i’m playing soccer, and my scouting group, ahg, just started up again. i think the badges my unit is working on are puppetry, social skills & etiquette, and zoology.

12) how are you preparing for life/college this year (on a conscious level)?

I DON’T HAVE A PLAN FOR MY LIFE. SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME.

13) do you play any sports in school?

i don’t play on any of my school’s sports teams, but i play spring and fall soccer for a different league. the first practice of the season is this week, actually. :D

14) is there any way that schooling is going to help your blogging endeavors? or how has it helped your blogging skillz in the past?

sometimes i’ll be studying something interesting (rarely), and i’ll be inspired to blog about it. and i work on my drafts to procrastinate schoolwork.

x

15) how much time a day is school going to take for you?

on days that i go to school, only three hours, because that’s how long my classes take. on the other days, about two or three hours. maybe five hours if i start procrastinating.

16) are you looking forward to seeing friends more often during the school year?

i’m actually going to be seeing my friends much less than in previous years. for pretty much my entire life, i went to a homeschool co-op that met every friday, and most of my friends went there, too. but i aged out of it last year, as did my friends. now it takes a lot of planning to hang out with them. but i still get to see my friend izzy every week, because she comes to my house for a science class.

17) are you dreading or looking forward to the event (or did you, if it’s already happened)?

i should have been freaking out about the first day of school, because i overthink everything. but over the summer, i somehow forced myself not to think about it, which means i did basically nothing to prepare myself. in fact, it didn’t click for me that i had to go to school until i was looking for something to wear that morning (i ended up wearing a my chemical romance shirt, because that’ll make a great first impression).

18) what are you most looking forward to about school?

working on my list will be exciting! and i get to visit b and n’s school this week, so i can cause some trouble there. >:)

19) how are you planning to fit actual life in with your school schedule?

actual life?? i’m a homeschooler, i don’t have a social life.

x

20) what are your overall thoughts on school?

i love learning, especially about science and history and psychology, because it explains the world and the people in it. but textbooks and homework and deadlines ruin it for me. they stress me out and take the fun out of learning. so, basically: i like learning, but the school environment sucks.

i tag q, charis, daisy, rutvi, sam, and anyone else who would like to do it.

here are the questions (i’m using kellyn‘s original questions because i’m too tried to think of my own):

1) when’s your first day of school?

2) what do (and don’t) you look forward to about entering the realm of the dead? uh, i mean the learned?

3) homeschooled, public schooled, or private schooled?

4) what grade are you going into? (if you’re okay sharing)

5) how many more years of torture do you have to endure learn?

6) what are your goals for this school year?

7) what’s your favorite season to school in? fall, winter, or spring?

8) how is schooling going to effect your blogging?

9) what’s your favorite school subject?

10) your least favorite?

11) what subject are you best at?

12) what subject are you worst at?

13) what extra-curricular activities are you planning this year (if any)?

14) how are you preparing for life/college this year (on a conscious level)?

15) do you play any sports in school?

16) is there any way that schooling is going to help your blogging endeavors? or how has it helped your blogging skillz in the past?

17) how much time a day is school going to take for you?

18) are you looking forward to seeing friends more often during the school year?

19) are you dreading or looking forward to the event (or did you, if it’s already happened)?

20) what are you most looking forward to about school?

21) how are you planning to fit actual life in with your school schedule?

22) what are your overall thoughts on school?

about that list i mentioned for #4: if you guys have any ideas for questionable things i could add to it, please tell me in the comments. my friends haven’t offered any good suggestions yet.

    Oh wait, what? Somehow I thought you were going to public school full-time. Ohhhhhkay, that makes sense. :P I love learning too, for the most part, but I agree, some of the rules and stipulations make it much less enjoyable. But then again, I probably wouldn’t learn as much if I, for instance, didn’t have to do chemistry experiments or write essays. So oh well.
    And about your list… um, no comment. I shall press “send” now. XD

        Heh heh, it’s fine. ;)
        Well… okay.
        1. Draw someone that asked you to. (You only have to show them if it’s good.)
        2. Write an anonymous note with a happy thought on a post-it note and stick it on the bathroom wall or on a stall, mirror, etc. (If that’s allowed…)
        Umm… that’s all I can think of at the moment. DO THEM.

    For your list (if you’re brave XD)
    – stare at the teacher until it drives them crazy. Like, stare in a slightly creepy way.
    – every time someone raises their hand, high five them.
    – stare into space. When the teacher tells you to pay attention, say you were looking at the wrackspurts.
    – when the teacher asks you to participate in class, say that you’re playing the silent game/protesting the usual methods (speaking) of student class participation.
    – take your notes in code.
    – randomly fall into “trances” and predict the future. For bonus points, roll your eyes wildly.

    Also, I totally agree with you with the “learning is fun except when deadlines exist” thing.

    dude, you have no idea how freaked out I can get even thinking about public school. like nOPe NoPE nOpE, not for me, thank you. you have serious guts for managing to survive it though, geez. (especially for math?? hardcore, my fren)

    oh and thanks for the tag! i’ll try my best to be optimistic. 😅 as for your list, all i can think of is a) pranks and/or b) sliding an anonymous note into somebody’s locker, telling them to “pass it on”, and then seeing if word gets around/if it makes it back to your own locker (wait.. is that still possible? like, through the locker vents? or am i way too uneducated in the public school world?? I DONT KNOW LOREN, YOU’RE OUR ONLY CONNECTION TO THIS STRANGE LIFE)

    and i would like to also point out how uncannily relatable those tumblr posts are. *nods* bless them.
