The sad truth is, the summer is slowly coming to an end, and that means school will be starting sooner or later, depending on where you live. Which means a lot of bad things, because school is more often than not quite stressful and annoying. But as we can't stop school from coming, I decided to make a list of the good things that come with the start of term.
-You can buy loads of cute new stationary
New books, new pencils, new notebooks, new everything. I don't know whether it's only me, but I love buying new stationary and organizing everything. It gives me a nice feeling of starting fresh and orderly into the new school year.
-You can see your friends and classmates again
You might not have missed them all, but it will be nice to see some of your friends again, right?
-It's a new start to try to achieve your goals
You have another try to impress yourself and your teachers and turn over a new leaf.
-You can finally try out all those cool BTS YouTube tutorials
Who hasn't seen them, DIYs, breakfast and lunch ideas, outfits, hair and makeup tutorials. It seems like every female YouTuber is trying to make BTS a little bit better (some with more, some with less good results). Some of them are a little cheesy, but that doesn't stop me from watching literally every one of them, does it?
-You might be getting the teeniest bit bored
Let's face it, summer holidays can be very long if you have nothing to do. Being a bit bored is fine, and it might even get you excited for school. A little bit.
-You can tell everyone about all the great things that happened over the summer
What would all the summer adventures be if you couldn't tell anyone about them? You are allowed to make your friends a wee bit jealous when it comes to holiday experiences.
I hope this list has helped you a little, and upped you back to school motivation a bit. If you have any tips for school motivation, please leave them in the comment section below!

One of my friends recently met two of my fave YouTubers. When I heard, I was completely and utterly filled up with one feeling: jealousy. I started crying. I was thinking: Why her? Why not me? I deserve it much more than her! I have wanted to meet these people for the past 1.5 years, and I was devastated that it had been her who got to meet them.
Why, i ask myself now? Why couldn't I just be happy for her, one of my closest friends, that she ticked this thing off her bucket list? Why did I have to have this stupid feeling inside of me, which was pulling me down and making me miserable?
It is a selfish feeling. We want something that someone else has. It's normal.
But I have become so f*cking tired of this feeling. Of being jealous. I just want to be happy with what I have, or with where I am. I shouldn't be scared that everyone else has a better life, because they probably don't. They sure as hell have worries and problems too. Just like me. I shouldn't be jealous of their lives, I should make the most of my own.
