  1. I would not say a normal girl but def a normal science girl. I have always loved science and nothing really bothers me (except the sound of bones breaking that makes me a teeny bit icky). I was really into genetics growing up so I had a mouse farm and a notebook. I would breed them to see if I could figure out the color of the litter. This one time I had a mother that turned on her own litter and injured them badly. I had to give one of them stiches and he was super tiny. I put his little muscles in place in then sewed him back up and he lived! My dads face was priceless though :). Just make sure to explain to her the dangers of pathogens and proper surgical procedure. Sounds stupid but she needs to understand that everytime she splits something open she is exposing herself to unknown diseases :). ps I did this on my phone so sorry if there are spelling errors.
  2. I would be entering this Jan as an 11th grader so I think that will help. I do very well in PS so if they need me to preform well I can do it. Thank You so much for all these stories I am feeling much better now!
  3. This gives me hope! I will be calling the school soon to find everything out. Wish me luck
  4. Ok I will check that the school is located in southern florida.
  5. Hello Hive mind I would love to get some answers to my questions because this is truly nagging me. I have decided with my mom that I would like to go back to PS this Jan and was wondering if anybody has had any exprience with doing such a thing? I have will have taken 12 credicts with keystone by Jan plus my 10 other homeschooled credits. I have taken the PSAT, 3 AP Exams and kept 1 AP Score a 4 and will be taking the SAT in Dec which I think I will get 2000-2200 without studying for it( I will thats just my raw score :D). I might also be taking the ACT in Dec. These are how my credits are distributed. 9th (keystone) AP World 3 on exam Honors Bio Geometry Honors English 1 Spanish 2 Digital Media P.E. 10th (keystone) AP Euro cancelled score AP Lang 4 on exam AP Chem AP Enviro Spanish 3 Algebra 2 P.E. (Homeschooled) 11th AP US His (homeschooled) AP US Gov (homeschooled) AP English Lit (homeshooled) Marine Bio (homeschooled) Physics (homeschooled) French 1 (homeschooled) Now the reason I homeschooled my 11th grade courses is because keystone does not allow you to pay for half and AP Course so I would have had to pay 700 dollars per course when I was only going to use 300 dollars worth. I did not have time to get my AP Course syllabus approved my college board but I am following the syllabus posted by florida schools and I have kept insanely detailed records of EVERYTHING including keystone work. I have binders with every scarp of paper I have used for my 11 th grade studies and I am well versed in everything except maybe some history dates but I am better at understanding trends so I have trouble with dates.The district I will be returning to was the last one I attended and during my time there I was in the gifted program. The one were they test your IQ. My question is how easy do you think this transition will be I am very very nervous to do this and dont want anything to go wrong. I AM TYPING THIS ON MY PHONE SO PLEASE EXCUSE MISTAKES :)
  6. The only reason I put that is because I have had friends just like the OP daughter that toy with these ideas and it's not good. Should the OP have read her daughters PRIVATE diary and shattered any idea that her daughter my have had to trust her? No! But she did and she now needs to work from here.
  7. Maybe just tell me what you think of the website?
  8. Be happy you caught it my friend went down that road and let's just say 5 yrs later life still doesn't look that great. My mother used to buy me the most beautiful journals when I was younger and I never wrote on them. Why? Well I found writing down something to be just as in the open as saying it so I never wrote anything. One time I wrote down a lie out of curiosity my little sister read it and then repeated it at the dinner table. I never wrote anything of mention down again. If your daughter did have any sense of peace and comfort in this journal you have shattered it. So don't be to surprised if she is viscous and angry at you and stays that way for a long time. Don't expect her to be thankful for what you have done for her. The question she will ask you is what of you hadn't found anything in my journal ? Ps I'm not attacking I'm just telling you as a teen and as a person with a friend who cuts what's going to be going through her head.

  10. Oh wow just reading this made be break out in the nervous little laugh with a hint of crazy. I am going into my junior classes in Nov and taking the PSAT in 9 days and the SAT in Dec. I feel like I am going to burst into tears at the drop of a hat. If he is anything like me there is NOTHING you can say to him to make him feel less stressed. Just sit back hope he doesn't have a stroke and then you'll get your son back. Good luck!
  11. I should have said that she is asleep by 8:00-8:30 but has to be reading or knitting or some other thing by 7:00 there is no way she could fall asleep at 7:00.
  12. Hello Hive I need your help for a quick issue regarding bedtime. My sister is 10 and currently goes to bed at varying times some days 10 some days 12 the thing is she takes a while to fall asleep ... a long while. Which means she gets up late around 9-10 in the morning. The last few nights I have had her wind down and be in bed knitting or reading by 7 and she is asleep by 8 and she gets up at 5:30 -6:00 no problem and spends the entire day bursting with energy and super happy :lol:. My question is do you think that is to early just was curious to see what others thought :). Also a note I am 16 and have always been a person who lays in bed for hours and usually does not fall asleep till 12 or later because I just can not fall asleep. Lately though I have been falling asleep around the same time as my sis 8:30-9:00 and am up at 5:30-6:00 super duper awake but this only happens if I am in bed by 7:30 which is quite lame compared to my peers so I am curious what do you believe is a good bedtime for children?
  13. INGREDIENTS: 1/2 cup butter (no substitutes), softened 1-1/2 cups sugar 3 eggs 2 tablespoons and 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice 1 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon peel 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 1/8 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup and 2 tablespoons Greek yogurt DIRECTIONS: 1. Preheat oven to 350°F and spray mini bundt pans with non-stick spray. 2. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in lemon juice, peel and extract. 3. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; add to the creamed mixture alternately with the Greek yogurt. Beat just until combined. 4. Pour into a greased pans. Bake at 350°F for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to a wire rack to cool completely. Lemon Curd Ingredients 3 lemons 1 1/2 cups sugar 1/4 pound unsalted butter, room temperature 4 extra-large eggs 1/2 cup lemon juice (3 to 4 lemons) 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt Directions Using a carrot peeler, remove the zest of 3 lemons, being careful to avoid the white pith. Put the zest in a food processor fitted with the steel blade. Add the sugar and pulse until the zest is very finely minced into the sugar. Cream the butter and beat in the sugar and lemon mixture. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, and then add the lemon juice and salt. Mix until combined. Pour the mixture into a 2 quart saucepan and cook over low heat until thickened (about 10 minutes), stirring constantly. The lemon curd will thicken at about 170 degrees F, or just below simmer. Remove from the heat and cool or refrigerate. Make the cakes hollow out the centers and fill it with this lemon curd and top with whip cream (home made) to die for!
  14. I am 16 now and although boys are interesting I have simply agreed with myself that college is when I will hit the dating scene. Its not due to religious reasons or purity reasons but its always been my thing that if a boy still needs his mommy to pack his lunch and get him up in the morning then what on earth should he be doing dating. I went to a school that by 8th grade graduation everyone had already kissed and a good majority had done a hell of a lot more. My mother never restricted me and said I could not date in fact she would have let me date but she explained to me risks and issues that I could face dating boys that young. She did not have to tell me though I watched it play out. Girls in 8th grade taking pregnancy test in the locker room bathrooms. :( I felt so bad for them. So even though it kinda stinks to be one of my only friends who has not done anything I get to watch my friends go through a lot of heart ache and make a lot of stupid mistakes.

  17. I think its possible with some help. I taught myself to knit from a library book in the 3rd grade and was able to knit a small swatch but with no one to help me unravel mistakes or decipher knitting patterns I eventually gave up. Now I picked it up again this summer and have knitted quite a few projects since then and am currently working on a cabled scarf pattern.
  18. Thank You! I might start posting some more drawings but I am always nervous that they aren't good enough. :lol:

  20. The apartment we are renting now has carpet and I hate it since my preferred method of cleaning is sweeping or vacuuming and then mopping repeatedly with different towels and boiling water. Carpet is like one big garbage dump:ack2:
