I hate that feeling where you know school starts soon and it makes the last couple of days of the holiday really pooey because you know what lies ahead. School starts tomorrow and my tears are splashing on the keyboard as I write this because school is rubbish. I think it would be highly appreciated by all if we just had one last week where the weather would be glorious and we could spend the entire week in skimpy clothes in the back garden, yes? Well.
And see, the first morning of school is like hell on earth because you're sitting in third period thinking 'Lord help me, how will I keep my eyes open? This time yesterday I was dreaming about eating pineapples and wallowing in the glory of the summer holidays.' Although, come to think of it, I have been waking up ridiculously early each morning but I bet when I have to wake up tomorrow morning I'll have to prop my eyes open with the stubs of the pencils I'll find at the bottom of my school bag because, of course, I'm going to forget my pencil case as is my personal tradition on the first day. And then there's going to be the usual ritual of gobbling-down-as-much-breakfast-as-I-can-stomach but still feeling like my stomach is going to drop out of my bottom of hunger by lunch. And when I open my lunch I'll find that my sandwich has gone soggy and my yoghurt's burst on the inside of my bag and I'll have to walk around with muller toffee hoops stuck to my jotters for the rest of the day. Lovely. Also, I feel like the only person who doesn't 'want to get back to school to see everyone.' They've gone without seeing me for six weeks, surely they can hold on for another week, no?
Having said all that, once I get back into the routine I always start to enjoy myself because I really quite like school in general, just not after six weeks holiday. You know, the thought of leaving school has me cowering in my school shoes because I have ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA what I want to do with myself, which is particularly scary given that I'm sitting my highers this year (the equivalent to A-levels) and it's the most important year yet. OH MY GOSH. I am stressing out and we've not even gone back to school yet.
When do you go back to school/work etc? Are you looking forward to it?
