  •  I wish I had been able to unschool. (2+ / 0-)

    Admittedly, my home enviroment was not great and would have been difficult about me just sitting around "doing nothing", but I came out of high school with a whole handful of social anxiety issues, a phobia, and some severe personality warping. I like basketball, and following high school ball would be fun, but I cannot go into that high school without having a panic attack. That is just all.

    I am unschooling myself now. That's why I read DKos, in part. (grin) And why in the 12 x 12 room I'm sitting in there are 800 running feet of bookshelf.

    •  Sounds good... (0+ / 0-)

      that you are taking control of your own path forward.  Never a bad thing!... But I'm curious... how old are you now?

        College is currently out of reach; I tried and have loans in default. I don't think the thing I have passion for (historical cookery) is employable. I am not disabled "enough" for SSI, but enough that I can't work any of the jobs open to me around here, all of which require an ability to show up regularly and stand for large parts of the shift and lift things. As does kitchen work, which is what I would do if I could. (sigh)

        Who knows, maybe with the stimulus package someone will find a cure for fibromyalgia and I'll be able to work at what fills my soul up.
