Hello, my name is David. I was a student in Mr. Schlafly's World History class that started this project. It has been a great privilege being a part in the making of this site. I consider the all the negative I see - from vandalism to blogs to the MSM - to be a sign that we are doing something right.
I am a devout Christian who is openly involved with my church. I am a student leader who used to lead games in Senior High Youth Group and now controls the computer to display slide shows, music, and movies. In addition, I co-lead a small group of about 8 boys. My church activities are a fulfilling and essential part of my life.
I like working with computers. Flash, Dreamweaver, and Photoshop are just some of the programs that I have learned. Web and Media Design is a field that I can see myself going into. I recently was accepted to Ball State for Fall 2008. I am looking forward to going and getting to take part in their new media programs.
I know how to play 3 instruments: guitar, drums, and...suprise! tuba. I go to a program that offers music lessons at a local church. Twice a year, I participate in a concert.
I also enjoy playing sports. I have played basketball and baseball in my highschool years and plan to continue through college. I am homeschooled, so being given the opportunity to be on a homeschool basketball and baseball team has really been a blessing to me. All the guys on our basketball team are close and many of them are in the same graduating class as me.
When asked where I go to school, I can see the preconceived social notions forming as soon the word "homeschool" leaves my lips. But the issue of social activities is really a non-issue for me.
