I used to be a teacher, but now I'm a SAHM. When I first gave up my career, I felt bad to watch all the teachers going back to school knowing I would not be returning.... The other I witnessed a two year old struggling with this same emotions... the feeling of being left behind. She pouted while her five year old brother filled mom's grocery cart with crayons and backpacks and other fun new items. When the 1st day of school finally came she cried for 1.5 hours. Nothing console this little girl who missed her brother. Do you struggle with back to school blues? Is it because you have to go back, or because you don't get to?

Well, it's something I get annoyed about. I hate going back to school. It's the time of the year when you just think "Oh god, I can't take this" Another year in school with short breaks. It's horrible. I really hate going back to school. Once I'm back at school, I don't mind too much and I just get on with it. However, in the last few days of the holidays I get really depressed and start remembering school and realising that going back is a reality. It's something I never have looked forward too and will never look forward to going back.

yes it is hard to say goodbye to a holiday, but don't you kind of enjoy bettering yourself, and having a routine is always nice as well.

Its funny I found myself in a back to school blues mode. see ever year me and one of my dream friend whom love stationary would go back to school shopping to get cute pens and stuff. Well this year money is tightso i have not been about to do that shoppeing and when everyone starts classes i have to wait until second term due to my transcripts getting lost. Funny how we get use to somthing. I feeling like a am missing a hugh part of life.
