This week I’m staying home from school to play catch-up. It’s times like these that make me appreciate my grown-up privileges to do independent study when I feel like it (I prefer the term “independent study” to “ditching class”). I’ll finish my last week of elementary school next week, spending a couple of days each in 4th and 5th grades.
My three and a half weeks in elementary classes have generated pages upon pages of notes on school memories and observations, and I’ve been frustrated that there aren’t enough hours in the day to turn them into blog posts. I dream of an invention that downloads ideas directly from my brain and turns them into polished pieces of writing. I figured that if ordinary monkeys can control a mechanical arm with their thoughts, surely I can get my laptop to do my bidding.
Until I become as smart as Bubbles, I’ll just have to keep typing out the entries myself. I have many, many experiences and epiphanies to share with you from the last few weeks, including:
- My high school reunion, and why some of the highest achievers are having a hard time leading efficient, happy lives
- Why I’m reschooling myself: a direct answer
- My personal school history, grades K-3
- Why education won’t change if adults don’t reschool themselves
- My reschooling curriculum
- A variety of reschooling tools to develop your intuition, happiness, and knowledge
Get ready. The contents of my brain are about to spill onto the page.
