I don't know if it's that so much as it would be wanting to face the nightmare of being in school after all she's done over the last few years. She would essentially be a complete disruption in class due to the harassment of those who aren't fans, and the constant attention from those who are. I don't blame her one bit, especially after already having been stalked rather publicly.

Additionally, after becoming an olympic gold medalists and the winner of Dancing with the Stars, daily Algebra homework would quite likely seem like a moot, mundane excercise to someone in her shoes. She'll get her degree, just in a manner which doesn't require it to be the focus of a life which doesn't have time for it right now.

I hope shawn turns out ordinary. Sometimes a child star fades. She might keep up the celebrity into adulthood, or decide to do something else.

I think celebrity has gone to Shawn's head and that is sad.

Glory days, We were all better in our youth, she was small and flexible, had a good teacher, As we grow and gain weight its much harder on our bodies. The impact of more weight landing on bones. I think her athletic days are over but she still has the fame and can ride it for a long time, hopefully banking the money.
