Hunter's Moon Posted January 27, 2011 Share Posted January 27, 2011 Due to illnesses (Kidney infection, sinus infections, bad allergies, even now have a stomach bug not bad thank God), having friends stay for an extended amount of time (family issues, they were here for 2 months and they are ''homeschoolers'' but just using it as an excuse not to drop out, they're twin sisters so I wasnt really able to get schooling done with them here) and shoveling, I really feel like my schoolwork is starting to slip. I'm behind in most things. Math and Science will be finished by June, but mostly everything else won't be done until July. I have SATs in May and am applying for 3 colleges in August so I need to get this stuff done. I've made schedule after schedule but it never gets stuck to. My latest scheduling dilemma is should I start school early, or sleep in and start later. I'm overwhelmed because I went from public school where all assignments were planned and graded by someone else to doing in all on my own. I've already talked to my mother about it all. She was making History and Health tests for awhile, but it is just easier to control it all myself, and she was fine with that. Its taken me a bit, but I've finally realized all this researching, planning, scheduling, and grading needs to be done by me or it takes me more time to help my mom figure out where to find the answers in the TM, how to grade the worksheets/tests, etc. (She has dementia so it is harder for her to figure these things out). I guess I'm just looking for advice, suggestions, something along those lines. I really want to blame my mom, she doesn't work outside the home but still ca't help me, but I've realized blaming her just hurts us both and gets me no where. I know this is good practice for college, but even then someone Will assign and grade my work. If you've read this far, thanks. I didn't intend it to get this long.
