yeah, i notice this in a lot of home-schooled kids that come to college. They have a really hard time integrating socially because they've never had to.I was homeschooled until 7th grade, so I was pretty embarrassingly awkward when I finally hit the strange world of public education. I didn't even know who Ricky Martin was (hey, it was 1999!)
Oh, it's nothing personal against any of you guys. It just makes me feel ancient.then you're going to hate hearing that I was in 5th grade in 1999.
Wanna come sit in my boat? I graduated HS in '99.Oh, it's nothing personal against any of you guys. It just makes me feel ancient.
In all truth, I am constantly impressed by traditional students. I definitely did NOT have the motivation and dedication to be premed at 18, 19, 20... So in short, props to you youngin's. I better go get back to my knitting and water aerobics.
Its SDN, network of nerds, did you expect normal people?Funny how the vast majority of people aren't normal.
Yep, even when your partying apparently.I was definitely a huge nerd in middle school.
I guess some things never change.
That sounds like such a fun childhood. Im jealous.I moved across the country in the summer between 6th and 7th grade. I was the new kid all through middle school. In high school I was one of the overachievers....speech team, NHS, National Merit, research at my local university, hospital volunteering.....you know, part of that group of kids whose conversation consists almost exclusively of talking about how busy they are. Sometimes I think back on that time and annoy myself. I definitely had NO FUN in middle school or high school.....
That is pretty awesome my friend. Also, I like how in 4th grade things like this made you cool or not.i peaked in 4th grade.. the two hottest girls in class liked me and i didn't know what girls were back then so it drove them crazy. plus i had this sick indian costume that i wore for halloween with real like handmade bows and arrows. i think that was the year i roundhouse kicked a soccer goal from midfield too.. it's been downhill since.
