Summer is ending already and school is starting pretty soon. It breaks my heart how my summer went too fast and I wish I could enjoy it a little longer. Anyways, the first day is usually the day people are nervous or anxious. For those who are starting in a new school and worried they may be lost around their way or around new people then stay tune and learn to feel less scared on the first day.
The first thing you must do is to stay calm. Being calm allows you to feel less nauseous and bring on the day. Take deep breaths to ease your heart. Make sure you grab something to eat. It doesn't have to be too big, just a small snack can do wonders. The most important step when entering an unfamiliar place or event.
In most schools, you'll be given a schedule that has room numbers. In any case, it's your job to find the class. But don't worry, the teachers won't count you as tardy as its only the first day and they understand. Sometimes, you may feel the need to ask someone for help finding your class so do ask. It'll save you lots of trouble and less stress. Trust me on this case.
Always have a good impression when greeting teachers or classmates. You don't want to be a person who has an attitude because you didn't have a good night's rest. Showing people your smile and kind gesture will make you approachable and vulnerable to less enemies. Plus, be true to who you are or else how can you be friends with those who believe in your fake personality. It's better to do it now than later.
Final thing is to go with the flow of the day. School is usually only 8 hours and the time will go by pretty quick. Don't focus on the clock, but yourself and studies. Have fun and be prepared that your first day may not be as what you thought.
To be honest, my first day was so awkward that each morning of the first week, I had to come late to class because of my bus. Even so, it was definitely awkward when coming into your first class and everyone staring at you each day because I was late. But I know that the situation would be awkward unless you make it awkward. Once I know what I learned from the previous days, I started to feel ease knowing that everyone understands my problem and changing the atmosphere to be friendlier. So don't worry, everything will be set into the past and later on, people may forget about it. It's how you handle the situation matters more than how you take it.
See ya next time! Ciao ^__^
