First day of classes - Are you excited?

When I was in grade school and in high school, the first day of classes is something I look forward to. But when I was in college, I was not as excited anymore. For one, summer break was more than two months back in grade school and high school. That means, we do not get to see each other for a very long time. But in college, if you enroll for the summer term, you only have two weeks of break before summer term and another two weeks off after the summer term before the first regular semester. So, you do not really miss your classmates, teachers, and friends too much. At least, this is my experience.. For more than a decade now, I have been a witness to how students are excited during the first day of classes. They show off their new things, they share stories, and they are restless on the first few days of classes. In fact, it is not that easy to get their attention during the first few days. Were you always excited during the first day of classes?

I did not like the very first day of school! Because everyone asks many questions about the holidays. I like to go back to college, but rather a gradual routine day-to-day. The first day seems a world apart.

hi dolce_vita. when i was younger, i was excited about the coming of the first day of school. i anxiously anticipated school opening and if i remember correctly, i would mark my calendar and count the days until the first day of classes. that was when i was in primary school. when i reached secondary school and college, i really didn't care much for school opening. not that i hated it, lol! i just feel indifferent. anyway, nowadays, i'm excited for my daughter as she will be in preparatory school this upcoming school year. she'll be in a new school and as a parent, i'm praying and hoping that she adjusts easily to the new environment she'll encounter daily. cheers and happy mylotting!!!
