All the motivation you need for going back to school
Back to school can bring mixed feelings: you're bummed that summer is over, and you might be nervous about starting a new school, but you get to see your friends again and get one step closer to graduation. Also, there's something so satisfying about buying school supplies—but that's a different article.
One of the best ways to make going back to school easier is to find motivation. While an uplifting quote might not seem like much, it can give you that extra push to carry you through the back-to-school scaries. That way, all you have to focus on is making this your best school year yet.

A great reminder for when you feel like school is pointless—you're learning more than the Pythagorean Theorem, we promise.

If you just started school and already feel lost:
Just like when you breezed through that math test last Spring, if you keep trying, your classes *will* become easier to understand.

Another reason you might be anxious to go back: gossip is the worst. Don't let what's said about you define you—your opinion of yourself is more important than anyone else's!
