From ages 5-25 they can only make conversation with people ages +40 (aside from their own sibilings).
Females from ages 5 to their death, wears a combination of the following: Flowery table cloth like vest, long sleeved button up shirts, 9 inch zipper back-pocketless jeans (Generally a 3 inch gap between the bottom of the jeans & the top of their boots), long baggy jean-skirts with a ruffle around the bottom.
Males wear either a tucked-in all the way buttoned polo shirt or a tucked-in t-shirt with a german shepherd on it. Also wears annoyingly tight jeans or khaki dockers (all of which are tucked into their socks).
You will know within 10-seconds of an encounter with any random person if they are a homeschooler.
1. someone who's parents don't want there kids doing drugs or getting pregnant.
public schooler: omg!! lady gaga is so awesum!!!!
homeschooler: Who is that?
1 - Someone who sits at home all day while upping their levels on World Of Warcraft.
2 - Super smart A+ kids who think they are better than you.
3 - Strange inbreds who slack off all day and have no friends or social life.
I happen to be homeschooled. I have normal friends and a social life.. and i don't wear high waisted jeans.
I think it's examples 1, 2, and 3, that give the rest of us a bad name.
John - Where do you go to school?
Laura - I'm a homeschooler.
John - Really? You're so.. normal.
There are two different types.
Ninja homeschoolers (I.E. People who don't have a say in the matter, and are forced against their will to be homechooled, and, if you don't know them, you can't tell if they are homechooled. They usually wear cool clothes, and have good social lives, and are pretty trendy.
Then there are the scary (almost Mormon) homeschoolers. Who have NO social life until collage, wear khaki or bluejean skirts and nearly bellbottom jeans, and polos, and only care about their grade, and their only friends are their siblings.
BY THE WAY!! IMMMA NINJA HOMECHOOLER SO SUCK IT
Person one: So, where do you go to school?
Ninja homeschooler: At my house!! It's freekin retarded!
Person one: Hi!
Stereotypical homeschooler: Um... Hi? Look I have to go work on my science project...
a really smart kid who meets the following criteria:
anti-social regardless of 15 extracurricular activities
spelling bee champion
homeschool debate team
already in college... community college
anti-evolution - no, sworn to defeat the evolutionists
pro-creation, if you know what i mean. definitely their parents
you get the point
normal person: you're a homeschooler? I never would've guessed!
A totally normal person who rolls their eyes at the stereotype.
I'm a homeschooler, and I wear clothes from Gap, Old Navy, and Target. My friends (also homeschoolers) wear off-the-shoulder tops, tie-dye jeans, One Direction t-shirts, and more. My hair is not down to my knees, I'm not Mormon, I'm not related to the Duggars, and I've never been in a spelling bee.
I am on the smart side, but I don't spend eight hours in a classroom five days a week! I hate video games. I know who Lady Gaga is, I know who Miley Cyrus is, I can name the members of One Direction, and I own an iPad.
I drink the occasional soda, and I'm not antisocial. I can't count my friends, there are too many. I do art classes, co-op, drama group, and more.
In short? Homeschoolers are just like you.
Public schooler: So where do you go to school?
Homeschooler: Actually, I'm homeschooled.
Public schooler: Oh, wow. That's too bad. I mean, I bet you don't have, like, a social life.
Homeschooler: * raises eyebrows* You spend eight hours a day in a classroom. And you think I don't have a social life?
Basically, all the stereotypes you've ever heard about these people are true. They don't know how to dress, are virgins, and usually wish they lived in an earlier era where women wore corsets and people had slaves. They often correct people's English and hate the government. You can tell someone is homeschooled because they are super defensive about it whether you have attacked them or not.
Homeschooler: (shouts to general public) "Not ALL homeschoolers are socially awkward!"
Normal person: "I didn't say anything! Who are you?"
A NORMAL person. Listen, I'm tired of the stereotypes. We are not all Mormons, Many of us have amazing fashion sense, and homeschoolers that fit the stereotype are a minority.
I KNOW who Lady Gaga is,I don't have to ask to use Google, I have a YouTube channel, and I'm homeschooled.
Plus, homeschoolers have time to do awesome extracurricular activities and socialize, while other kids sit in a classroom all day and get in trouble for socializing.
Oh yeah, and my chores don't involve milking the cow.
Person: What school do you go to?
Homeschooler: I'm homeschooled.
Person: Oh. what do you do all day?
Homeschooler: Lots of things.
Person: Like Latin and stuff, cause I like to go on the Internet. You know about the Internet right?
Homeschooler: Here's my email. Let me know if you want help setting up a blog or a Facebook page. You can friend me on Facebook too. I have lots of friends!
Person: Really? Wow...
