You know you’re a Waldorf kid when…

(This is something I found on a Facebook page. I know most people won’t care, but I think it describes Waldorf kids very accurately)

1. you know pencil shavings make everything prettier

2. you rip your pants and instead of throwing them away, you whip out thread and a needle and fix them

3. faries and gnomes were your childhood friends

4. there’s no need to research the dating history of your boyfriend/girlfriend, you know everyone they’ve dated

5. knitting is not just a new trend- you’ve done it since first grade

6. you’ve made socks, hats, potholders, flutecases, stuffed animals, and sewn your own clothes

7. as you kiss your boyfriend/ girlfriend, you realize it is like kissing a sibling… you break up

8. it doen’t seem weird to have the same teacher for eight years

9. you can never escape your ex… they’ll probably date your best friend

10. tie dye was part of your dress code as a child

11. at least one of your woman teachers doen’t shave

12. you’ve dyed your hair an unatural color at least once… or wondered what you would look like with purple hair

13. you’ve held hands and skipped around a pole, and no one thought it was weird

14. you’ve lived in a house without TV at some point

15. you can spell out words with your arms… no need for the finger

16. you have eurythmy shoes laying around your house

17. you’ve worn a eurythmy gown

18. you know what eurythmy is

19. you’ve had a crush on all the guys/ girls in your class

20. everybody in the school knows if you ditch class, or break a rule or hook up with somebody

21. you know not to breathe near the blue paint

22. you can play a wooden recorder

23. you can never forget your embarrassing childhood- they chose a picture of you to go on the school brochure

24. you didn’t have barbies or GI joe, you had silks and wooden trucks

25. you know all the bible stories even though you’ve never set foot inside a church

26. you wonder if Waldorf has an agreement with Volvo to only drive their cars

27. cheerleaders, football players, and all things “public school” are not only scorned, but feared

28. you’ve been asked “isn’t that a cult” when you say you go to Waldorf

29. the thought of main lesson book nights haunt you years after you graduate

30. you’ve been in at least one Shakepeare play

31. you’ve used the words “Waldork” and “Waldorfian”

32. you couldn’t wait to get out of there, but once you did you wanted
to be back

33. you don’t know the pledge of allegience, but “I do behold the world” and the Bell Ringing verse are permanently imprinted in your brain

34. you know in your heart that no matter how hard you try to escape, you will always be a child of Waldorf

I miss my Waldorf days…
