I decided that I would write a post this week on a slightly lighter topic. So on that note, here are tips for spotting a homeschooler:
1.Are wearing the latest fashion, if we still lived in 1990s
2.Are interested in history, politics, obscure fantasy (not Harry Potter because witchcraft), sewing, baking, and/or living in the 1940s
3.Have the entirety of the Princess Bride memorized
4. Have dressed up as a Bible character for Halloween
5.Carry around a copy of the constitution and/or the Bible
6.Are more comfortable talking with a 40 year old than a 14 year old
7.Only now have Facebook
8.Will accost you with a discussion on politics and/or predestination
9.They actually know what predestination is
10.Are more likely to know the Weird Al version of a song than the original
11.Are more likely to watch blockbusters from the 1950s than the ones from last month
12.Have fast forwarded through the kissing scene in most movies
13.Either have all of the Disney movies memorized or think all of Disney is evil
14.Would constantly role play Lord of The Rings if they didn’t think role playing was evil
15.Either think this list is hilarious or are already writing 95 Theses arguing against it
If they fall into anyone one of these categories, you might have found yourself a homeschooler! Congratulations! It can be hard to find a homeschooler in the wild.
A wild homeschooler appears! You use pop culture reference. It was super effective!
Note: Obviously this post is meant to be taken in good fun. 90% of this list has applied or does apply to me and the other homeschoolers that I know, but I recognize that everyone has different experiences. /necessary disclaimer.
