I can't wait to go back to school

 

 

I’m sorry to hear you’re unhappy. It can be tough to leave behind the familiarity of your friends, structure of your sched and even the educational challenges school provides. But instead of spending your summer sobbing over school, try to make the rest of your summer the best it can be! Before you know it, it’ll be time to hit the halls and you’ll have tons of terrific tales to tell.

 

Stay positive

 

Don’t just fall into a funk and pout until the weather cools down! Instead of wishing for autumn leaves and number-two pencils, make your summer a time to remember. If you think your summer’s gonna stink, it probably will, so smile big and get ready for the time of your life. Do all the stuff ya never have any time for during the school year: Get to know your neighbors, write your Grandma a letter (she’ll be thrilled) or volunteer for a good cause. Use all your extra time productively, and you’ll banish the boredom blues for good.

 

Summer school

 

Still pining for homeroom and cafeteria lunches? Think: What is it you love so much about school? If you can figure out what you’re really missing, you can do your best to work ‘em into your summer. Bummed about missing your friends? Make an effort to get your pals together. Try hosting a sleepover or grabbing your besties for a picnic in the park (for more ideas, check this out). If it’s some brain-training you’re missing, challenge yourself by reading some classics. It’s a chill way to learn a lot.  If you just miss the routine, make your own sched, replacing biology with pool time and English with jogging in the park, of course.

 

Talk it out

 

If you still can’t embrace the sunshine and sand of summertime, try explaining that to a close friend or family member. They know you best, so they’ll probably have some great ideas. Be open to their suggestion and try to accept their help. You never know, you might have a great time in a way you’d never expect.

 

Keep smiling, chica!
