Beating the Back-to-School Blues

It's kind of pathetic that I'm writing a whole post about coping with the fact that school is starting up again, but for some reason, I feel it's utterly necessary. Truth be told, I love learning, (if I didn't, my life would be miserable) but just the thought of having to wake up early and not be able to go to the beach makes me wish that summer would last forever. I'm starting to realize now that no matter how long or hard I wish for the beginning of school to hold off a few more months, it's coming quickly... and I need to be prepared (I'm overly neurotic about always being on top of things). For all of you that are dreading starting back up with routines, sports and school, I'm sharing a few things that make me feel a bit more excited about what's to come!




Upcoming Holidays
I mean, who doesn't love Thanksgiving and Christmas?! I keep telling myself that the sooner the school year starts, the sooner the holiday season starts. I could celebrate Christmas all year long and never get sick of it, so I couldn't be happier that it's not too far away (eeeek!!)! Halloween is a bonus because it splits up the months and gives us a little something to look forward to!


Football Season 
I mean, who isn't excited to watch their high school or college team play football?! Not to mention that all my fellow New Englanders are totally pumped to watch the Patriots play every week now! (I'm sure everyone else is looking forward to watching their NFL team play as well!)

Less Time on my Phone
I love social media and am a true Instagram lover, but keeping up with everything online is getting tiring. I'm so thankful that I'm a sound sleeper because when I wake up in the morning and see a million notifications on my screen, all I can imagine is how much noise my phone made throughout the night. That doesn't bother me as much as the fact that I feel like I'm constantly checking my phone. I'm so done with feeling the urge to make sure I'm up-to-date with everything happening online. It will be nice to detach by spending the day in school WITHOUT being on my phone.


Fall Fashion
Vests, sweaters, boots, jeans. Fall has to be my favorite season for fashion (in theory). I'm so excited to start putting together some outfits for the blog, and can't wait for you to see them!


For me personally // Featured in a Magazine 
This October, you should see me in the Top of the Pops magazine! I was invited to be on one of the pages by an editor of the magazine, and after reviewing it with my parents, we decided together that it seems legitimate and safe! I'm so excited for the edition to come out, which is keeping me enthralled!


I hope this post helped you get somewhat more excited about the dreaded start of school! Let me know in the comments what upcoming things you're looking forward to that are helping you beat the back-to-school blues!
