How To Cope With Going Back To School, College or Uni

The first Monday of September can only mean one thing, back to school (or college, or uni) It's always daunting going back after a prolonged holiday period - I've been on holiday since May and it feels so surreal to think that I will be going back to uni later this month - so what's the best way to ease into the student life again?

Personally for me it's exciting to be reunited with some of my close friends often, travel can get in the way and I don't get to see the same faces daily as I would at university so that's always a plus and something I look forward to! I'll be away from the comfort of my family home and my parents' lovely dinners but I'll gain some of my independence back once I move out to embark on my final year. And if you're anything like me one of the best things about going back to school is the stationery! I've been buying so many new notebooks ready for the academic year that honestly, it's a little bit ridiculous. If you have a uniform then this may not apply, but if you don't, expressing yourself through your outfits could be something to look forward to.

I don't go back to university until the end of September, I start my final year Monday 26th which still seems like far away but I'm sure it will come knocking right around the corner really soon! When do you go back to school, college or uni?
