I Graduated High School

I am 17 years old, and I recently graduated high school. You may be thinking, “Hey, isn’t that early?” but let me explain a little bit.

Homeschool

I was homeschooled, so grades weren’t really grades. If you are being technical, I graduated when I was in grade 11. However, there are some reasons for this.

I skipped a grade of math when switching from brands (not sure what to call them). This is because the first math I was doing taught me quickly, and when I took the test to figure out where I was in Teaching Textbooks, I went straight up to pre-algebra.

There was no science for grade 12. I am not sure why, but I do know I did a whole bunch of challenging science before graduating. In fact, here’s a list of everything I did for math and science in the last four years of school:

Math: algebra I, geometry, algebra II, pre-calculus

Science: physical science, biology, berean chemistry, physics

What I did for my graduation

As in celebration? Nothing, unless you count the celebration in my heart. I was happy—very happy—to finally be finished with school. I could go on and talk about everything I liked and disliked about school, but we’ll save that for another blog post.

Other than that, I made a graduation certificate on Canva. This was just so I could apply to jobs that required I have a diploma. I know Canva isn’t an official diploma, but hey, if God wants me to get the job, he won’t let that stop me.

I also created a resume in Google Docs for fun. However, I ended up applying to two jobs with it and having to write two cover letters. I got rejected from one job. The other one still hasn’t contacted me back yet, so maybe they’re considering me.

Aiden graduated with me

Yep, you heard that right. Aiden, my 16-year-old brother, graduated with me. Our mom started us in school at the same time (since we’re only a year apart), and ever since then, Aiden has been doing the same grades as me. Right now, he enjoys producing music, playing chess, biking, and crocheting.

My next steps

I am working on my writing and website. Currently, I have four books that I’m working on, all in different stages of the writing process. I’ve been working on rebranding my website, as well as some other website things that aren’t public yet. Oh, and blog posts.

Besides this, I’ve applied to two jobs. I’m kind of looking for more opportunities, but I’m not sure yet what I want to do. I’ll do a blog post that goes more into depth on this topic. For now, I’m mainly focused on my writing.

  1. Congratulations to You and Aiden on Graduating. Wishing you both much love and success in your new life adventures.

  2. So college is not on your immediate agenda? You would enjoy college life living in a dorm making friends and sharing experiences. You’ve had such an interesting unique life made for movies and tv. I can hardly wait to see what the next chapters will be in the life of Kayla Wong. God bless, God speed and God, for sure always. P.S. Had a nice visit with Ada and Ginny this afternoon. Your grandma Caroldine was there. Your Aunt Eileen is in quarantine for the required number of days. She has very mild symptoms and is doing okay. Wife Nancy and I have not been infected so far. But I think it’s a matter of .. not “if” but “when.” Stay healthy.

    1. College isn’t something I think I will pursue, as my interests aren’t taught at college. I have some…unique things I am thinking of pursuing. I will make a blog post soon about this in more detail. It sounds fun (making friends, independence, and all), but I think I would want to do this through my writing and maybe a job. Again, more on this in an upcoming blog post….

  3. Hi Kayla, , So good to see you moving along trying to develope your gifts and find your place in life. Ron and Claire leaving for Oklahoma tomorrow. I here we will have a barbecue when come over. I forget when? Lord bless you! See you guys soon! Brother Jack
