    Starting School Now... *glares at dumb confusing computer*

    OK.. so... I'm homeschooled. And I do a homeschool thing online. It's my first year doing this, so I have a ton to figure out. So... I'm starting some of my school today... which is really annoying. In the long run... it'll be nice... but for now... ARGH...

    May I ask a question about your homeschooling? :) What do you do for science lessons?

    We read our materials, do our lessons, and do our labs kind of on our own. (with parents watching)

    That's great, that you get to do experimental work too What kind of lab equipment do you have? The reason I ask is because a) I'm very keen on a proper science education and hope everyone gets one, and b) so often what I hear of homeschool science education is the fun observational/demo experiments that you get in 'science at home' fun kits and stuff - you know, stuff in the kitchen to do cool effects, plus then a bit of theory to back it up. That's only a small bit of what the experimental side is about - and I don't know how you'd carry out, say, a back-titration at home.

    I was home schooled by my mum from 4th grade till 8th grade. The only thing I regret was loosing all of my friends and so when I came back to public school, I didn't really know how to interact with other kids my age. Yeah....

    I know this really isnt the same thing, but I'll go for it anyway.

    I take most of my college classes online, I LOVE that I can work at my own pace and so on. It's up to me to read the materials, do the home work, and we have forums we have to post on as well. The only downfall that I have is that I am a bit of a procrastinator, so it's tough when I can't get my butt into gear and get my work done. I find that a lot of times I'm messin around HERE instead of doing homework. Lol (tisk tisk)

    Anyway, school can seem overwhelming at first, but it gets easier as you go. You'll find your own groove, and soon you'll have it down pact!
