What if I have a mean
It’s the first week of school and you’re already swamped
with tonsa homework. Plus, your teach won’t let you talk in class and always
calls on the person without their hand raised. How can you deal with her for a
whole year? Just be polite, do all your homework on time, and follow the rules,
not matter how unfair they may be. Your teacher has a reason for doing what she
does, and may lighten up as the year goes on. But you def don’t want to be
stuck on her bad side.
What if my friend
isn’t talking to me?
You get to school on the first day ready to chat up your
bestie about your summer, when you find that she won’t even look at ya. What
gives? Maybe she changed over the past few months, or she just needs some
space. Whatever it is, give her some time to explain herself. If nothing comes
of that, approach her and ask her what’s up. She may just be waitin’ for you to
talk to her.
What if I don’t have
time to do anything?
Soccer, chores, dog walking, homework, play rehearsal, and sax
practice? Wow. Someone’s got a full plate. You may wanna slow down, take a
breath, and set some priorities. Can your sis walk your dog for the week? How
about doin’ homework in the car on your way to soccer, or during down time in
rehearsal? If workin’ in time for everything isn’t helping, talk to your ‘rents
about what activities you should focus on and which to put on the back burner.
What if there’s peer
Is everyone wearing the same type of boot that you think is
just awful? Or are they all gossiping behind their friend’s backs? Don’t feel
like ya have to go with the flow. You
can totes wear those cute flats you got at the mall last week, or talk about last
night’s episode of PLL. Who knows, maybe you’ll start a trend with those flats
What if I don’t make
You’ve practiced for weeks to make the volleyball team, and
even though you have a perf serve during tryouts, you still don’t make the cut.
Ugh. Instead of mopin’ about your loss, think of it as an opportunity to try
something new. Have you always wanted to be a cheerleader? What about joining
the art club? Now, you can! Expand your talents—you may end up finding
something ya heart even more than volleyball.
What if I can’t open
Rushing to get to class and—uh-oh, your locker’s stuck. This
isn’t a biggie. Just look around for a janitor and ask them to open it for you.
When you get to class, just explain it to your teacher. They’ll totally
understand and let it slide.
