Back to School Tips

Aawww man! Summer’s over already? It’s like I haven’t felt the summer break! I still have many more sights to see and many posts to write! Oh well, you can’t control time right (…can you? xD). Here’s to another 9 months of studying, project-making, essay-writing, and another painstaking season, how cool is that! (…I know right? xD). Anyways, going back to school is the big thing right now (right next to Hayden Kho… just kidding xD).

Students and parents rush to nearby schools to enroll like a celebrity just popped out of nowhere (Yes, I know what is feels xD), malls are filled with notebooks, pens, pad papers, and other paraphernalia, friends spending the last days of summer by “texting-to-sawa” all night long… et cetera. et cetera. So are you ready for your first day? NOT YET? well better take your new panda pen and that sterling notebook and jot these tips to survive your first day!

I’m going to focus on the 3 important parts: YOUR THINGS. YOUR UNIFORM. YOURSELF.

  • MAKE A CHECKLIST – make a checklist to let you know what things to buy [ex. number of notebooks, book names and authors, plastic cover, art/construction papers for that color-coded notebooks, etc.] AND THAT IS WHAT I’M GOING TO DO HERE! :)

1 WEEK LEFT:

  • THINGS – As the saying goes “an early bird gets the worm” , or sort of, just be as early as you can if you’re going to buy your stuff, you’ll never know if the supply of those notebooks will last long, or that bag that you were planning to buy. But do consider the time the mall opens :)
  • UNIFORM – whether it’s RTW or pre-made, have enough number of uniforms to satisfy the weeks and months of schooling
  • YOURSELF – This is the time to relax! (well, despite the little pressures of all that buying and stuff) hey it’s your last week!

5 DAYS LEFT:

  • THINGS – Now that you’ve bought your supplies, make them your own by writing your name or personalize them with your artistic designs.
  • UNIFORM – Buy a patch at your school so that I can be stitched, washed, ironed and ready to go!
  • YOURSELF – Take care of yourself. Have proper hygiene (well you do this every time right?) so we can prevent those annoying last minute pimple breakouts, if you want (…and got the money…) you can visit your dermatologist for a check up so that your face will be in tip top shape when the big day arrives.

3 DAYS LEFT:

  • THINGS – Make sure everything's in place. Just double check everything to make sure
  • UNIFORM – Just leave it there in the closet, It’ll be fine! :)
  • YOURSELF – This day is perfect for any last body and hair fixes: Haircut, facial treatments (you’re rich!), rebondings, and whatever you girls do. xD

THE DAY BEFORE:

  • THINGS – Prepared and ready to bring
  • UNIFORM – Laid down on your bed ironed, pants/dress spiffy and clean, shoes polished, socks freshened. But don’t over do it, it’s not your wedding or anything. xD
  • YOURSELF – Eat well and sleep early ‘coz you’ll have a busy day tomorrow! :)

FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL:

  • Well this is about YOURSELF now:
    • Wake Up, breakfast, Take a bath, toothbrush, uniform, things and you’re ready to go to school! (haha, does this daily routine look familiar to you? Do you feel the school days now? xD)
    • Greet everyone with a smile in your face – hey! you’ll never know when you will meet a friend. :)
    • Find your room – of course you need to look for your home at school right?
    • Meet up with friends – hey! for after 3 months you haven’t seen them! why not give them some quality talk about your vacation experiences or jut give them a visit at their rooms at recess. They’ll love it!
    • Leave a (good) Mark – No, I’m not encouraging you to vandalize school property. Since this is the first time you’ll meet your teacher why not make your first impression a good one. As they say “First impression lasts”
    • Get to know your teachers – Don’t always trust rumors to students think about “Mrs. Masungnit” get to know them yourself, you’ll never know maybe Mrs. Masungit will be your most favorite teacher this year!
    • End the first day right – Make sure everything's alright when leaving the room, you don’t want to start a fight at the first day, would you?

I HOPE YOU ENJOYED READING AND I HOPE YOU’LL HAVE A WONDERFUL FIRST DAY AT SCHOOL! I’m hoping too you know! ={ haha
