This wasn’t how I pictured my first year of middle school. I was excited about the new building, moving from classroom to classroom, and meeting new friends. Waking up each day and trying to get myself motivated to in front of a computer screen day after day is really hard, but I’ve been trying to stay positive.
My teachers, for the most part, are pretty nice. The school day is shorter. The work isn’t as hard as I expected. I’ve even made a few new friends.
I think the key to staying happy is to always find something to look forward to, even if it’s just a little thing. A favorite meal your mom’s making for dinner. Watching a scary movie on Netflix with a big bucket of popcorn. A cute new pink outfit. Anything to be excited about will do. Just always have something in the back of your mind.
