Hey everyone. My name’s Lilly and I am a second-semester eighth grader with a blog. That’s not that unusual. What’s unusual about me is that I’m self-taught, somewhere between home and unschooled. I’m planning on doing a lot with this blog – reviewing various educational resources, sharing which sites and books I use to learn independently, discussing my thoughts on college and academia in general, and probably just being silly at times. There are a few rules/boundaries I would like my readers to adhere to/respect.
1. I’m not going to tell you what state I’m from. Don’t ask.
2. Please do not come here expecting to get legal advice on the “right” way to home school or un-school. I have absolutely no idea what your state’s requirements are, what your family’s beliefs are, what it would take for you to be successful on the ITBS/ITED or whatever it is your state uses to test you, and what kind of future you want so I am a horrible source of info on that! My best advice if you have no idea what to do or take might be to start off slowly and find someone who knows their shit to help you figure out what’s best for you.
3. Just because I’m nice doesn’t mean I want to be your best friend or have sex with you. Just no.
4. For heaven’s sake, it’s not even legal to ask me for inappropriate pictures so don’t do it!
Now that we have that covered, I’m going to go back to working on my General Science course through alison.com. A full review will be available later.
