Hello, everyone! If you've been reading my blog for a while, you will know that I was soon going to be starting high school. Well, guess what? I have! And I'm LOVING it!!!!
I did have a lot of nerves before I started, though. The night before I only slept for about an hour, which didn't really help. The morning before I was nearly sick with nerves and was unable to eat anything. However I'm pretty sure that's a norm.
But when I got to school, it was like taking ice cream out of a freezer. All of my worries melted away as soon as I got into the school. Already I have so many new friends, and they are all lovely. I'm not really sure if I can call them my besties yet, but they are becoming closer with every minute that I spend with them.
We didn't really do much of anything on the first day; we got our locker combos, our lockers, our student handbooks and played quite a few games. Which was really nice, considering.
Soooooo, my advice for starting school for the first time? Don't try and be someone you're not - I know that you'll probably have heard this a thousand times, but it's the best advice I can give you. When you're being yourself, people can suss out who you are - and if they aren't liking who you are. they won't stick around. However, there might be people who you were destined to be friends with but you can't find them because you were acting like someone you're not and thought 'oh, no, I don't really want to be friends with her.' Honestly, just be yourself! It won't kill you.
How were your first days? Got any advice for starting year seven? Post it in the comments below!
