The holiday season is almost over, and school will be starting soon!
Most students might feel discouraged at the idea of returning to school, but that should not be the case.
However, if you are still feeling dreadful about it, here are some reasons to feel excited about going back to school.
Chance to reinvent yourself
The start of the new school year brings a lot of new things to you.
This may include new stationery, textbooks, school uniforms and shoes. It also gives you the opportunity to start over.
You can try to get better grades, read a book at least once a week, join numerous school activities or participate in school sports even if you are not athletic.
Needless to say, the new beginning at school is your chance to reinvent yourself.
Catching up with friends
For most students, one of the most exciting reasons to go back to school is to hang out with friends.
Although you can do that during school holidays, being around your friends at school is different as you get to experience things together.
School is not just a place for learning; it is also a place to have fun with your friends.
Deep, interesting conversations
At school, you will always be surrounded by peers who will most likely share the same interests as you do.
This makes it the perfect opportunity for you to interact and have deep meaningful conversations with people of different backgrounds and cultures.
No boring moments
During the holidays, you pretty much know what your routine will look like. But at school, everyday will be different and you will not know what to expect. While maths, science and history lessons may not be of your interest, there will always be something for you to learn and participate, such as sports, debate club and art class.
Being able to learn and be exposed to new things is good exercise for the mind.
