The summer is in full swing, and you’ve just gotten
comfortable sleeping in and getting out of the house every day. You’re living
the good life, with nice weather, amazing friends, and a million things to do
and see. However, as much as you don’t want to acknowledge it, summer has an
expiration date and it’s almost time to get ready for another school year.
GROOOOOOOOOOOOAN. Say it isn’t so?!?
Despite your best efforts, the end of summer is looming on
the horizon. There’s nothing you can do to stop it.
No, that won’t work either. No matter which way you slice
it, the time has come to gear up for school after a not-long-enough summer
break. You might be thinking these things right around now...
Wait, I’m confused, how is school
Like a time warp, you blinked and summer has run its course. How is this even
possible? The school months drag on and on, going at a snail’s pace, yet summer
months go lightning fast. This is simply against physics and you demand
On the other hand, school wasn’t so bad
Thinking back, you actually realize that you had some fun
with your friends and classmates in between your school assignments and exams.
Some things last year were unforgettable, and maybe your next school year will
bring lasting memories, too!
NOPE. I’m hanging on
to summer forever.
You’ve decided that you’re boycotting going back. Long live
endless summer! You’ll get everyone you know behind the anti-school initiative,
it’s going to be epic!!
But, rebelling will get boring, with all
your friends busy being back in school…
Maybe you shouldn’t rebel against school starting, not just
because learning and finishing high school is important, but also think about
how you’ll have nothing to do during the day when you’re the only one absent
from the classroom. On top of that, you're starting to miss other things about school, like just sitting at a desk! Talk about a weird version of FOMO…
back-to-school means shopping!
You’ve been wanting new things and after a whole summer of
window-shopping with your friends, your parents are finally offering to buy you
a fresh new outfit for the first day of school. And, a backpack. And, supplies.
And, more clothes for winter. OK, maybe you can jump on board with this whole
‘school’ thing after all.
Plus, a new school year means new
friends and activities!
Each school year brings opportunities of meeting new people,
who can, in turn, become new friends! Or maybe the timing is right to tryout
for a sport or join a club that you’ve always wanted to be a part of. This could
just turn out be the best school year ever!
And, this year,
you’re really going to shine.
Summer gives you the time to transform yourself, and arrive
on campus a person reinvented. Exuding confidence can do wonders for you with
other students and make great first impressions on your teachers. Move over,
last school year, this one is going to be the greatest year yet!
