As a homeschooling family I find it important and interesting to get some insight from people who have been homeschooled. It’s always good to see both sides of the coin, right? When Jo commented on one of my posts and mentioned that she’d been homeschooled I immediately approached her about writing a guest post or two for my blog. I was so happy to hear that she would jump on board.
Please head over to her fantastic blog, Jo Robin Blog, where she shares a college student’s meandering thoughts: Original posts at least every Saturday and every Wednesday.
In order for you to get a little idea about who Jo is, I decided to ask her a couple of questions. Here is what she had to say:
How would you best describe yourself?
Probably, most succinctly, as a day-dreamer; I spend a lot of time “living in my own head,” which is how I ended up starting a blog. At the moment, I’m also a full-time INTJ, cat-lover, and college student.
Why are you blogging and what is your blog about?
I haven’t narrowed down one specific theme for my blog, and I don’t know if I ever will. I started blogging because I noticed how much people love to find that they have thoughts, feelings, and experiences, in common with other people. I’m trying to find words for all those things it seems impossible to find words for, hoping that some thought of mine might connect with someone else’s. Thus far my blog is meant to showcase the naivety of young adults like myself for the sake of comedy (I’m trying not to take myself too seriously as I flounder my way through this concept of adult-ing), as well as make some serious points about serious topics.
What is your strength and what is your weakness?
My weakness is chocolate, my strength is found in those who support me.
What makes you really happy?
Good music and the great outdoors are two things very hard to beat. I’m a total music junky and should probably consider cleaning up my 85 hours of songs saved to my Spotify. My favorite outdoor adventures include the weeks I spent canyoneering and canoeing in Utah, along with weekend trips in caves and on horseback.
