Starting school again after a summer break can be a bittersweet experience for students. While there’s excitement about seeing friends and teachers, there’s also a sense of dread about returning to a structured routine. For me, this year was no different. Despite not having the relaxing summer I wanted, the schools finally resumed and I was faced with the reality of having to spend half of my day in class and the other half at my own disposal.
However, I was pleasantly surprised to find that out of the seven overcrowded classes I was in, only two had 24 students instead of the usual 35. This was a welcome change, as it made the classes feel less overwhelming and more manageable.
As we navigate this new school year, it’s important to remember that our experiences and emotions are valid, no matter what they are. Whether we’re eager to return to school or feeling a sense of hesitation, it’s important to take things one day at a time and make the best of the situation. So, let’s grab our books and get ready to start this new chapter in our lives!
