HELLO! I cannot tell you how glad I am to open up my blog again. It’s been ages since I last posted, and no, I was not kidnapped by aliens. Sadly. I still remain on this messed up planet we call the Earth. So where was I, you ask? Trying to survive the biggest change I have ever experienced in my entire life. Changing schools.
Although I am aware that changing schools can hardly be classified as a life-changing event, it does have the power to make a whole new person out of you. Not that you’ll suddenly grow fangs or claws. (How cool would that be though? I could terrify everyone into becoming my friend) Not to worry, I did manage to make friends without resorting to extreme measures. I thought it would be useful to list some tips on how to avoid channelling Greg Heffley in your brand new school. Let’s go.
- Smile like the world is ending and it’s the only way to survive. Smile so much that people are slightly unnerved by you. I kid you not, this is exactly how I managed to give off a ‘I don’t bite’ vibe.
- Laugh easily and often. Not to be confused with smiling, laughing is a whole new ball game. Laugh when it’s awkward. Laugh when you’re not sure of what to do or say. Laugh at yourself. I felt so relaxed that I often forgot to stress about saying the right thing.
- GIVE THEM CANDY. Yes, I am advising you to resort to bribery. Nobody can resist a good old KitKat. And nobody can resist a person who gives you said KitKat.
- Finally, although this is such a cliché thing to say, try to be yourself. No use trying to pretend you have a British accent or something because trust me, they will find out. And they will never let you hear the end of it.
So there ya go! I am enjoying school (did I just say that?) and I hope that the rest of the year is just as good for me and everyone else who is in school. Or anybody really! I hope every human being on Earth has an amazing year ahead. And on that positive note,
