I used to dread this time of year. Why? Because it meant that I had to go back to school. To me it meant waking up early every morning (I’ve never been a morning person), learning about subjects that didn’t interest me and homework.
Does this sound like you? Well I was missing the important things about going back to school and perhaps you are too. Maybe you just need some back to school tips.
Going back to school doesn’t have to be a dread. It actually should be an exciting time in your life. There are so many things to look forward to instead of dreading the things about school you hate.
Seeing Old Faces
How cool is it to come back from summer vacation and see your friends? True you might have seen them during the summer, but what about the people you haven’t seen?
You get to catch up and talk about what each of you did over the summer. One of your friends took a vacation in Florida and the other stayed at their parents beach house in California. It’s all great to hear.
Maybe you took a trip to Cancun and met this amazing guy/girl whose eyes you can’t stop talking about. Whatever the case may be, it’s great to share stories, talk, laugh and just plain old reconnect.
Meeting New People
Every time you go back to school there are new faces all around you. This is the time to meet new people and make new friends.
You might be used to the people you already see and know from the class that you’re in, but who says you can’t explore?
There’s nothing wrong with stepping out of your comfort zone and introducing yourself to someone you don’t know or someone you’d like to meet.
Someone transferring to a new school isn’t uncommon and maybe you’re the person they need to help them feel more welcomed at their new school.
Is their a guy/girl that you’ve always wanted to talk to but haven’t had the guts to do it? Well now’s the time to get the guts and go for it. If you don’t, you may regret it in the long run.
This is a great time to establish new relationships with someone who will be in your life for a long time to come. Just try it and see what happens. You never know, you may just find you a new best friend.
Showing Off Your New Style
I bet you thought I was gonna say something about learning didn’t you? Naaaaa, learning’s for nerds right? Well seeing as though I am a nerd, I decided to hit on something better… STYLE!
Nothing makes you feel better than showing off a new wardrobe and a new you on the first day of school. A new style should definitely be on your back to school list.
I used to pick my clothes out the night before and try them on to make sure I looked good.
When you look good, you feel good, which gives you a completely new attitude towards this whole back to school thing. Just keeping up your appearance will have you looking forward to school.
After reading this, you may or may not be jumping for joy about going back to school. That’s okay, it’ll take some time for it to sink in.
So whether you’re hyped or not, it’s either already here or it’s coming, so get ready. But I’m curious to know what you do to prepare for the first day of school or even the rest of the year?
Drop me a line in the comments and let’s chat. With that being said, I hope you have/ had a great first day back at school and good luck!
