Back To School Thoughts


It's that time of the year again, it's time to go back to school! Depending on what sort of person you are, you could be jumping for joy or sobbing uncontrollably right now. Either way there are pros and cons to the first few weeks of school and I'm here to take you through them!

Bad Things About Going Back To School
(Let's get the bad stuff out of the way)

Uniform: You spend a whole summer with the freedom of being able to wear comfy and casual clothes everyday and suddenly you have to wear uniform 5 days a week. I'm so jealous of those who live in countries where uniform is not worn. I'm already counting down the days until our school's next mufti (non-uniform) day

Teachers: You get a whole new set of teachers who always appear a lot worse in the first few lessons. Every year I get at least 3 teachers who decide to terrify us with promises of whole class detentions and lots of homework. It's probably just a power thing but it always seems to work on us! The good thing is that usually wears off in a few monthes when they've learnt all of our names.

Homework: Gone are the peaceful evenings with nothing to do but sit on the sofa and watch films. This year is supposed to be even worse than last year on the homework front but as long as you don't put it off until the last minute, you should be fine!

Good Things About Going Back To School
(because a positive outlook makes it bearable)

Fresh Start: A whole new set of teachers, new exercise books and a chance to start fresh. This year will be the year when your handwriting improves, you always get homework done and your grades improve. Maybe, if not there's always next year! 

New Stationary: This is my favourite thing about going back to school because in those first few weeks you are well prepared and nothing has been lost or broken! 

No Tests: Unless you get really bad teachers, there is no reason why you should receive a test first thing back because you haven't actually learnt anything yet. If you do come across one, stay calm and collected because questioning it will only make your teacher angry.

Friends: You get to see your friends every single day and can go through all the tests and boring lessons together. You've also got a lot of catching up to do and can make your holidays seem exotic and exciting even if they weren't. For example you might have gone to Italy, tried the delicious Italian cuisine and heard lot's of beautiful live music even if in reality you ate pizza every night and accidentally walked into a karaoke night at the hotel you stayed in.

Let me know anything I missed down in the comments!

See you soon!

  3. Ugh I hate uniform! Today we got the worst news ever - our new head has stopped non uniform days for the time being because he 'doesn't see them having educational benefit' *cries*
