Still in vacay mode? Well you should get out of it! The summer is ending and school will start soon, prepare yourself because we're going back to reality. I know the word 'school' sounds horrible when it's not there yet, but you have to keep in mind that it will be there in less than two weeks. Enjoy those two weeks, but also prepare for the things below...
#1 Early Bird
Sleeping till 12 AM? Stay up till midnight? Well that will have to change, get back in the routine, go to sleep and get up early. Otherwise you will have a tough time when you go back to school/work. When you haven't had enough sleep you won't be able to focus on your work and it's already hard to focus when you've had a long break. It's not a crime to start with this before it's there, it will help a lot when you are prepared and already back in the routine!
#2 Hocus Pocus Focus
This subtitle sounds a bit rediculous... Anyway, focussing on your work is one of the most important things when you're going back to school/work. In the beginning it will be hard to concentrate because you're still thinking about the things you have done and what you could have done during the holidays or what could do when you were not sitting behind a desk with some boring paperwork in front of you. Stop thinking about those things, all that matters at that moment is your schoolwork or career. But if you still have time before school starts or before you have to go to work, get back in the routine, but don't forget to enjoy those last few days!
#3 Old Strangers
When I think of strangers, I think especially of teachers and bosses, but ofcourse also about fellow students and colleagues. You may not have seen them for a long time because you were tired of seeing them whole year long so you decided to hang out with other friends, don't worry, there's nothing wrong with that ☺. But it could be a little awkward when you see them again, they may have changed. Maybe they have another haircut, haircolor, sense of fashion... Besides the visual things: they may think, act, feel different about you and a whole bunch of other things in this massive world. You're warned! It might not be that bad, so don't freak out. ☺
#4 New Acquaintances
I say new acquaintences, I mean new strangers. But these strangers may become aquaintences. It's only a matter of time and words to get to know these strangers and they turn into new friends, but that depends of what kind of person you are. Some people jump too fats into the friendship game and have problems later on. And some people take it slow and learn to know the person before they jump into a friendship. I just warn you and say that you don't have to trust people too easily, but also don't have a too hard time to trust someone, otherwise you might get some trust issues. Just give it a try, learn to know the new people and maybe you'll finally find a new friend.
I wish you the best of luck with your education and career, hope you have a good start at school or work and I'm sure you're going to be alright! Here are some wise word from a wise man!
Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
