    Gather everything you need for school. Take your "books read over the summer" list and put it in your folder, take your 5 paragraph essay and put it in your folder, take anything you wrote for your teacher and put it in your folder! Gather all you materials and put them into different compartments.

    Plan what you're going to wear on the first day of school. Remember that you don't have to change your personality to be accepted. You don't have to be a "girly-girl" or a "goth". You can wear black and pink together, dye your hair blue and move on without a care. Remember that "being yourself" doesn't mean picking out a personality! It means just doing what you feel like (within reason of course).

    Get a good night's sleep! Go to bed at 10 pm and wake up at 6 or 7 in the morning. Dream! Rest! Now, wake up and get dressed. Eat a great breakfast and go to school! Don't forget to have a great day!


  • Make sure you know the weather when you plan what you are going to wear on the first day of school!
  • Have a positive attitude! Don't get nervous and say, "I can't get organized!" You can. Having the right mindset can help greatly.
  • When you blog, pick a friend that is likely not to change the subject, but keep it alive with a joke or two about school!
  • If you feel comfortable enough, invite a friend to go underwear shopping with you. Trust me, you don't want to go to school with dirty underpants!
  • Always bring a sweatshirt no matter what weather it is. Your classroom could be colder than you think.
  • Wear deodorant for a fresh smell.


  • Make sure you know the material list of tools you need for school, and you don't bring anything that is not allowed!
