How to Reinvent Yourself for the Coming School Year

So, you're last few years of school have came, and you're ready to start all over again. Well here are five steps to use while reinventing yourself for the upcoming school year.


  1. Image titled Stop Being Emotional Step 1
    Observe: The most important thing, and the first thing you want to do is take a good look at yourself and your reason for wanting a change. Is it because the girl who sat in front of you in math class doesn't like you, or because you really want to fit in? If something like this is your reason, then you're doing all this for the wrong reasons. Remember, the most important thing is to make yourself happy. If you're happy with who you are, and what you are, then don't change.
  2. Image titled Deal With a Hard Life Step 2
    Decide Who You Want to Be: Okay, now let's look at what you would like to become. This is the one and only time you should ever allow yourself to stereotype. What appeals to you? Do you like being loud and being in front of a lot of people? Do you have school-spirit? Then try cheerleading. Do you like to learn? Are you into competitions? Try something like Mathletes, or other scholastic games.

    Look Around: Now that we've figured out what you want to do, look at others who are generally the type of people you want to be like and hang around with. Look at what they do, where they hang out, and what sort of clothing and grooming they wear and do. I know sometimes clothes can be expensive, and so can hair products and make-up. Try looking at what they wear, and get a general idea. Then, go to cheaper versions of the stores they shop at. Now you can be somewhat like them, but you'll be unique at the same time.
  4. Image titled Improve Self Confidence Step 2
    Build Self-Confidence: It's time for a bit of self-confidence. You're going to need it. It's hard to break into a new group and not feel a bit nervous. Remember, before you go to school on that Monday morning, or you go to talk to those new best friends of yours, give yourself a little pep talk. Remember, you CAN and WILL do it.

    Go Out and Do It: Good, you've reached step five. This is the last step for you on your way of reinventing yourself. Pull on those new clothes of yours, hold your head up high, and go for it. Remember, you are not changing the person you have always been, you are showing everyone a new side of you. A side that you've always wanted to be, but haven't had the courage to be. Now, get off your bum, exit out of this window, AND GO FOR IT. (Well, maybe you should read the tips and warnings before you exit the window...)


  • Don't change yourself for others. You should worry about yourself, and do what you think is right. You have to live with yourself for the rest of your life; they don't.
  • If you ever need more advice on any of this, consult your mother or a close friend. They'll probably have seen the side of you that you are trying to show the world. Let them help you.


  • People WILL judge you. People always have, people always will. But don't give up. You keep trying to be the person you want to be. Trust me, you'll get there.
