The first day of school is right around the corner for many of us. Preparing for that big day is a lot of fun, but there are certain elements of going back to school that can create a lasting impact Ė and not in a good way.

Be Really Late

Everyone is expected to get a wee bit lost on the first day of school, but you are expected to be there on time and possibly be just a minute after the bell looking flushed after wandering down the wrong hall. If you come into school an hour or two after classes have started, youíd better have a terrific excuse the administration has never heard before. Otherwise youíll look like one of those students who is lazy, oversleeps and doesnít care enough about school to arrive on time or even try on the very first day. And thatís not the sort of reputation you want from your teachers or from your principal.

Be Unprepared

You donít really know whatís going to happen the first day of school, but you can get mostly prepared ahead of time. Most schools allow you to come and pre-register and to pick up your schedule ahead of time. Do your homework and learn when orientation is and how to get your schedule ahead of time. You want to come to school already knowing where youíre going and how to get there. That might mean spending thirty minutes one afternoon while teachers are working finding classrooms and testing your locker. Or arrive early the first day and scope out your classes then.

Being prepared also means having something to write with and something to write on from the moment you walk in the door. You should have taken care of any required school supplies ahead of time if you know about them. Required summer reading goes without saying Ė itís required, you should have done it before heading back to school.

Start Drama

It doesnít matter if youíre forced to sit next to the girl who stole your boyfriend or your very best friend in the world. Donít call unnecessary attention to yourself the first day. Donít get so loud and excited that the teacher thinks youíre going to become a behavior problem (yet.) And donít start picking a fight with your mortal enemy from last year. A lot can change over the summer, and you should use the first few days of school to decide how you want to approach the year and how much youíve changed. You can watch to see how much others have changed as well.

You might realize that you feel like sitting in the front this year because youíre excited about a particular subject or teacher when youíve never sat closer than the back row in your life. Donít make it a big deal or feel like you have to carry on the issues and problems that might have existed last year. There will always be plenty of drama and emotional turmoil in your life and around you, but the first day of school is not the time to start sobbing about your summer romance, the crush who hates you now or to fight the girl to blame for all of the above. Save it for the second week, at least.

And I agree with this (even if I don't understand point two).
