Back to School Blues

By Chelsea Gilmore on August 28, 2017

It’s August again which means back to school. Whether you’re a freshman or a senior like myself, it can be overwhelming. So I’ve compiled a montage of memes that describe the first week of school for everyone. Enjoy!

Okay, but for real this is the least favorite part of back to school no matter what age you are. Even I hate this. But as much as this part of going back to school sucks it is an important part of meeting new people and getting to know your teachers. Embrace it and say with gritted teeth what your favorite hobby is and where you’re from.

This is relatable. I am so excited about going back to school but the first week is the most laid back. You’re still getting to know the class and the teachers but once the first week is over it’s back to business. Most students feel the pressures of school after the first week.

As college students, being freshmen is cool and all because you meet different people. However, once you get into the routine and you’re aware of the people around you it only seems necessary to converse with people your age or those who share your same major. It’s too much work making new friends. People you meet in class are convenient.

This is literally the best feeling. Going to class is such a chore and if you can get by without going then score! However, (specifically freshmen) heed this: not going to class can cost you your grade. Going to class is important. Don’t ignore the teacher’s advice when they say your success depends on your attendance.

Accurate. Going to school is the best. Hanging out with friends is awesome, going to lunch or even just going out for a drink. The freedom to do what you want. But making time for school work is hard. You enjoy being in school but don’t want to do the work … it’s a difficult life.

But really though, we can all agree … sleeping is the best medicine for anything.

Cherish your time in school! College might seem like a lot of work but it is worth it in the end. With my senior year on the horizon, I am determined to make this the best year yet. You don’t realize how much fun college is until it’s almost over so make the best of this year guys!

Enjoy this season of your life!
