Whether you are a parent, student, or former student, I guarantee you have said at least one of these things about back to school time before.
#1: “The school year gets earlier and earlier every year!”
Yep, so true. This year, some counties went back on August 1st!
#2: “If you don’t have kids, don’t go anywhere on Tax-Free weekend.”
Also true. Not every state has a tax-free weekend, so not everyone understands the struggle. But if you know, you know.
#3: “Did you finish your summer reading?”
Is that even actually a thing?
#4: “I haven’t written anything all summer, I’m not sure if I can still write!”
You know what I mean. That first week of school handwriting is not pretty.
#5: “I got to campus an hour before my first class started, and I was still five minutes late to class.”
If you had to go to a new school on the first day, you will understand.
#6: “How was your summer?”
Not long enough..
#7: “Are you excited for school to start?”
Oh yeah! Said no one, ever.
#8: That family member that never knows how old you are: “So what grade will you be in this year?”
For the tenth time Aunt Tina, I graduated two years ago..
#9: “You are going to make all A’s this year, right?”
Yes, because I can definitely see the future.
