I was always so nervous on the first day of school. I would pick out my first day outfit and have it laid out and ready. I'd check to make sure my alarm clock was on a million times before I went to bed and usually I wouldn't sleep too well.
The morning would dawn and I would usually be awake before my alarm went off. I'd lay there staring at the red digital numbers as they worked their way toward the time I'd set the alarm for. When it was finally time to get up I took extra care in my appearance. Check my stack of school supplies again, eat breakfast, make my lunch (if I hadn't made it the night before) and finally I'd leave for the mile long walk to school.
Was the first day of school ever as difficult as my nerves indicated? Only the year I moved and went to a new school in a new state. Every other first day was easy and fun. I loved school. I had great friends. Why was I nervous? I seriously have no idea.
Were you nervous on the first day of school? Or were you put out that you had to go back? Were you excited to get back to friends and a schedule? How did you feel?
