Why I'm Here:
- to connect with other self-directed learners in my area

My Biggest Current Interests & Projects:
- I am currently looking for community, structure, and motivation to study at home. I am a great procrastinator - when I could be studying I go spend time with friends, go on a binge reading irrelevant articles online, or pick-up extra shifts at work.

Bio:
I am currently unschooling and seeking supportive and knowledgable peers. This is my first time not attending formal school for thirteen years - my last year completed was College Freshman.

Recently, I lost all motivation in school and needed a break, and started questioning the whole system of schooling. It is very stressful, overpriced, and the methods of educating are not very effective.
I live in a college town, so my peers and elders both are very skeptical of my negative outlook - they say that college, these days, is the only way for financial security, social status, etc.
For now, I am just trying to figure out what my stance is and what I plan to do next. I do, of course, still want to keep learning, and I know that college provides some amazing resources (with a huge price tag). Soooo... yeah.
