Back To School Tips


Hello Internet!

I don't know about anyone else but, for me, this year is going really quickly. It's already September, even though it doesn't feel like two minutes since January. Before we know it, it'll be Christmas!
Anyways, moving on to the actual topic of the post...September is a pretty important month (and, no, that's not because my birthday is in September).September is the month to return to school/college/university (or wherever you go). At least, it is for all the schools I know of...
My school goes back next week, so I thought I'd do a post relating to school (in case you hadn't already guessed).

Get Organised

There's nothing worse than waking up on you're first day back at school and realising you've got a huge list of things you need to do to. I've found that it's quite useful to sort everything out a few days (or weeks) before you go back.

Here are a few things you could do to organise yourself:

- Sort through any old books or folders and decide which you'll need to keep for the new year.

- Make sure all of your uniform is ready (that is if you have uniform, of course).

- Check that you've got a decent school bag which can fit all of your stuff in it.

- Find any notebooks or stationary that you'll need and pack it in your bag.

- Pack any essentials you may need (this is mainly for girls - like any
hair/beauty stuff you'll need).

- Make sure that you've done - and printed - any homework you need to do (though, if you go to a nice school which actually allows you to have a break from homework over the Summer, you won't have to worry about this. Unfortunately, my school is not one of these).

Set Goals

Okay, so I don't know about your school, but my school makes us write down our academic and behaviour targets for the upcoming term. That's not the kind of goals I'm talking about because, seriously, I don't think anybody actually cares about them. What I'm talking about is just a personal goal that you can set yourself and keep in your head. It doesn't have to be anything big but it's up to you. Kind of like New-School-Year Resolutions in a way. A few goals I've set myself are:

- Remember to eat breakfast every morning before I leave (I'm really not good at this).

- Organise myself and try and get my homework done as quickly as possible.

- Keep my bedroom tidy all the time so that it's easier to concentrate with my homework and revision (though, to be honest, I already do this).

- Try to concentrate in class - however boring it may be (so, basically, no more daydreaming).

- Work hard on my attendance and force myself out of bed if I have to.

Don't Bother Complaining

I tend to do a lot of complaining when it comes to school. But, this year, I've tried my best to just get on with it and accept the fact that I'm going back. The thing is, it doesn't matter how much you moan, it won't change anything - you're still going to have to go. Therefore, you might as well just save your energy and move on. It's happening - accept it before you waste the remainder of your holidays.

I know I probably should have posted this sooner because I think a lot of schools have already gone back (especially in other countries). Anyway, I'll try and be quicker next year.

If you haven't returned to school/college (or whatever) yet, good luck. If you have, how horrible was it?

Thanks for reading,

  1. School is just starting up here in the US, and I'm not looking forward to it. Thankfully, no uniforms (I like being able to express myself through clothes). I did have summer homework though.... Good luck with this school year!

    1. Yeah, I quite like having a uniform sometimes, though - mainly because I don't have to think about outfits in a morning.
      So it isn't just my school that gives out homework during the holidays, then (I don't think holiday homework should be allowed!).
      Thank you, Ella. Good luck to you too,
