Hey there! Today’s blog post is a little bit different, however i think its a pretty important one and hope you will like it.
Anyways, todays topic is a bit hard to pull through, but I’m gonna do it. It all started at Carver. My elementary school. I went there from 3rd to 6th grade. It was a great school. Amazing. My best friends went there, there was great teachers too. 7th grade came around, and my family always had this idea that we should homeschool. But it was kinda too late, plus I really didn’t want to. I went to Goddard, my middle school for 7th grade. And don't’ get me wrong, it was a great school. I love my friends there. The way the education was presented however, was a lot different than Carver. You see, Carver was a GT school, it means Gifted and Talented, but don't take it the wrong way, I’m not here to brag “oh i went to carver”. It really just means that they present the same information in a different way. In a more creative way, and it makes you think more outside the box. Anyways, forward back(does that even make sense lol?) to 7th grade. They have Pre-AP/ GT classes. If you were “GT” basically you were just put into Pre-AP. In this case it does mean you learn more advanced than others, but mainly it’s because you learn things and understand them a little faster, and easier. Some of my classes were challenging, but not the ‘think outside the box” kinda way. Sometimes(a lot of the times) it would get a little boring. And in one class, my friend and I would joke that “we were losing brain cells every second spent in there”. Not really but it felt like we weren’t learning to our full potential. So, I decided, I didnt want to stay in that hole, I didn't want to learn at the least of my potential. I wanted to go at my pace, fast (but in math’s case, a lil slower lol).
Do you remember how we had the feeling to kinda homeschool last year? Well for me that feeling was a little stronger. Now, I know this sounds weird, but i had a strange feeling from God, to be homeschool next year. Part of me was really excited for all the opportunities that would come with being homeschooled. But another chunk of me thought “do you really want to be homeschooled? What if its you crazy imagination telling you to be, and not God”
But now I can say and truly feel that it was God telling me that was the way to go. I really have no idea why, and that what makes it so hard when people ask me, “Ohhh how come you’re being homeschooled” I never know what to say to that because I know they won’t get it (so if you’re reading please don’t ask, you already know(: )
Sometimes in life you really don't understand or know why God is leading you through that path, and I still have many doubts, but it all comes from trusting and having faith that God knows what he’s doing and it’s gonna be the best decision once you look back and see the whole picture. This remind me a lot from another blog post I made called Pain for purpose that you should really check out HERE if you’re in a time in your life where you feel God is leading you in an unknown and different direction.
Anyways, that is the way I’m going this school year, and although I’m a little nervous, I’m excited for the most part and can’t wait to see what God has in store for me this year. I will have a lot more time dedicated to blog stuff and blog posts so get excited for that(however that doesn’t mean school is not before)!
Hello guys! If there’s one thing you should know about me is that I love to read books! And so does my friend, Keren. Which you’ve seen from my Jelly Soap DIY, Science Experiments, Beginners Guide to Bullet Journaling, and Easy DIY Scrunchies!
