First Week Of Class Blues Are Real And Hit You Like A Ton Of Bricks But They Won't Last Forever

As much as we wish we were, we're just not all morning people, or class people at that.

First Week Of Class Blues Are Real And Hit You Like A Ton Of Bricks But They Won't Last Forever

Ah yes, the sun is out, the temperature is just right to sweat by the bucket, and as much as you might not be ready for it, the first week of class is upon us.

Now, don't get me wrong. School is wonderful, and the experiences gained here can have an impact that lasts a lifetime. That's something to be excited about. However, when it comes to the first week of class, as in, the first week of trying to figure out where your classes are, battling the lines to buy textbooks at the last minute, and waking up for your 8 AM class that you're pretty sure is a good half an hour walk away, it can be a little less than pleasant.

As much as we wish we were, we're just not all morning people or class people at that, and maybe that's something that needs to change. Especially during the first week of classes, it might be time to try waking up a little earlier, going to bed a little earlier, and getting ready to start your day, to get a fresh start to your day, and be in a good mood, and be ready to go to class. If you're bright-eyed and cheery in the morning, then the first week of class blues can only hit you but so hard.

Getting through the first week of class blues might also come in the form of taking classes that you're excited about, taking classes that make you want to learn and ready to learn. If you're reading or doing an assignment on something you love, then it's kind of hard to feel any sort of blues about it. In fact, if you're ready to learn during the first week of classes, then I would think you should be a pretty happy camper more than anything.

I don't know about you, but coffee is more often than not the magic trick when it comes to brightening my day, and that might just be exactly what you need when it comes to the first week of classes. If you don't like coffee, then any sort of food, drink or even face mask or beauty product that you can find to treat yourself with might just be the perfect incentive to get through that first week of class blues.

Getting through the first week of classes might also start with doing a little work before the week has even started. I know, I know, that means that you might have to take some time out of your summer vacation, but being prepared for the first week of classes is going to make things run a lot more smoothly, and in turn, a lot less bluesy. More specifically, maybe take a look into buying textbooks before the week starts. If you can't or don't necessarily want to do that, try making sure your class schedule is perfect, that there is nothing you want to change about it and that you're in classes you love. Also, a little mental preparation doesn't hurt anything either.

All those things aside though, school is pretty great. In fact, school is a little more than great, it's actually pretty amazing. The fact that you get to learn about things you're interested in (or not interested in) is something that not many people get the opportunity to do, and it's something to get excited about. The first week of class blues are definitely real, but reminding yourself of just how lucky you are to even be able to experience them is sure to help you get over then.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
