Inkdeath is Here!

After three long years of waiting, Inkdeath is finally here! What a great almost birthday present! I got it tonight, so that's what is probably going to occupy most of my time this weekend. I'll probably even still be reading during my birthday party on Sunday, I'll be so into it...;)

I officially love Borders! I tried to get it at Barnes and Noble, but they said it wouldn't be coming out until October 7th. But there it was right in the front at Borders...:)

Have a great weekend!

I'm seriously considering homeschooling...

So I'm about a week and some odd days along in my last year of junior high at the public school that I've been going to for two years. And at this point it just hasn't been going very well for me.
My sister is considering doing homeschooling, and I think that I might too. My mother is thinking about it and I just need to talk about it with my dad now.

I am just not enjoying public school. Half of it is busy work, the students and people there are aggravating, the options very limited. If I did homeschooling I could do this Electronic High School that is available in my state and take some classes that they did not offer at my school. Plus it would give me chance to get ahead and not waste so much time with unimportant assemblies and teacher advisary classes like I'm doing now. I think that it would be an okay choice academically.

My mom is worried about how I'll do socially if I do decide to drop out of public school. I personally don't care, but I don't want to do anything that I'll regret.

So some opinions would be very much appreciated (especially from you folk that are homeschooled.) So what do you think?
