- What about friends? How can you cultivate a social circle or learn to deal with other people while on the move?
- What about college? Does this style of education prepare you for university?
- How will my son/daughter get a job if they aren’t formally educated?
Last week, I had the opportunity to chat it up with Stephen and Theresa, the minds behind Ownstream.
What a blast! This was absolutely one of the most fun interviews I’ve been invited to. If you haven’t heard of their podcast series already, get on it. They do a fabulous job of asking in-depth questions that go above and beyond to showcase new ideas. We hit all the main points about socialization and the basics of life as a worldschooled kid, with a more in depth look at school schedules, the benefits of traveling young, and how worldschooling has affected who I’ve become as an adult. Of course, dork that I am, there may have been a little goofing off along the way as well.
Want to hear what my voice sounds like in real life? Interested in learning more about worldschooling? Want to know which books I think you should read? (just kidding, I totally blanked there)
Check it out here: https://ownstream.co/edventuregirl/
And, uh, books I actually think you should read:
– Bird by Bird, Anne Lamott
– Neverwhere, Neil Gehman
– Magicians, Lev Grossman
– Any Charles Dickens book, ever.
– Walden, Thoreau
– Pale Blue Dot, Carl Sagan
– Astrophysics for People in a Hurry, Neil deGrasse Tyson
– The Soul of an Octopus
Feel free to take this as an opportunity to give me book recommendations. ;)
