Starting the Semester
So I’ve been allowing myself a little break over the summer, but things are about to start picking up.
Clonlara, the program I’m homeschooling through, starts its semester on September 7. I’ve been putting together my curriculum and reading list, and planning for the year. Through this process I discovered that I only need one thing to graduate Clonlara – a half credit of American Government! I’ve been thinking about how to go about earning this credit, (suggestions are appreciated!) while also putting together some just-for-fun classes that will show up on my transcript, even though they’re not required. A little extra credit never hurt anyone.
But my schedule will not be totally blank, despite the minimal graduation requirements. I’ve already landed two internships – one with a local radio station, KPFT, and the other with the Houston Center for Photography – and I just applied for a job at a resale clothing store. Who ever said homeschoolers are lazy?
So right now I’m just reading, writing, and catching up on classic films, and planning for my family’s trip to Ireland in September (I’m going to read Dubliners by James Joyce while I’m there!) I know I’ve been quiet for a while, but don’t worry – I’ll be very diligent about letting you all know the things I’m learning about.
