Even in 2020 school struggles shall remain the same. We have seen many examples of expectation vs reality school edition but these 15 back to school struggles have their own situations. Struggles did not change much in 2019 and they are going to remain same in 2020. Its nearly that time of year when all the tv adverts are about stationary, uniform and packed lunches! The start of the school term is close and with that comes a lot of mixed opinions, but ultimately we all get that pre term wobble and here are those hilarious struggles we can all relate to.
That Last Minute Project
Towards the end of the holiday, there is always that sudden moment of panic when you remember you had a project, piece of coursework or reading due for when you return!
Unless you are very organised, there is always an inevitable lost exercise book or library book very over due!
There will be dreaded interrogation from your parents asking how it is possible to lose a whole set of stationary in a school year!
The ‘Back To School’ adverts, that every time they come on you get a wave of nervousness and slight panic or simply just want to cry.
Buying New Uniform
Roll on the arguments when buying new uniform as your parents will want the size up so you can grow into it and you’ll want to size down for a short skirt or a tighter skirt!
And School Shoes
Everybody tries to push the limits and uniform rules when it comes to regulation school shoes!
Pressure To Look Cool
All the uniform drama and shoe palavers all boil down to the pressure of going back to school looking like the coolest kid on the block.
Pressure To Get A Tan
If you have told all your friends you ‘tan so well’ or have ‘loads of amazing holidays’ then you will find yourself under pressure to return to the school corridors looking as sun kissed as possible.
Wishing You Were a Celeb
While scrolling through social media and seeing celebs partying and holidaying, we all have that moment where we wish that was our life.
Trying To Find The Positives
When you try to be rational about going back to school and brain storm all the positives to going back, but end up with all negatives.
Remembering The Early Mornings
One of those negatives being the dreaded early mornings! From barely seeing any sight of a morning and waking up at lunch time, this will come as quite a shock.
The worst is the sudden realisation that you actually haven’t achieved much over the 6 week long summer holidays.
The Last Week Of Holidays
The last week feels like a constant count down and will be the fastest week of your life.
For some reason, adults love to kindly remind you ‘oh you must be going back to school soon’ while smiling politely we are all crying on the inside.
The Night Before
And then there is the night before going back to school, this will be a night of slight excitement, a lot of nervousness and forced sleep as the alarm for 8am is set.
