Advice for starting a new school. Always a very scary adventure but advice to get through it.

New School

A new school. What a scary and troubling time for any kid. "The new kid." What a hated statement. Anyone who has ever been a new student is well aware of what goes along with that title. The worst fact in life is that school is your first training ground for the rest of life. In a normal persons life, there will be many instances where you find that you are a very small fish in a very large pond. In my opinion, there are four guidelines to follow when going to a new school.

Step One : Be friendly. Someone that is friendly can never go wrong. Sure, there are people that are obnoxiously friendly but the only harm in that is leaving someone with the opinion that you were annoying and even then that is their own problem. What's so bad about someone saying you very annoying and when others ask them why they are like she tried to be nice.

Step Two : Put yourself out there. Again, whats the worst that can happen? You may put yourself out there and get burnt. Please do not be suprised if this is not the first time or last that you feel embarrased. No one would be great if they had not tried first.

Step Three : Breath. It is ok. No matter what happens or what you say, the sun will rise tomorrow.

Step Four : Be yourself. Please do not present someone else when meeting new people. I'm sure you have heard that once you lie, you will need a thousand new lies to cover the first. It gets complicated and will leave you will unnessecary stress.

Enjoy your first day of school.
