Ann: The first day of school wasn’t too bad. The 2nd day stank!
Jodi: A few weeks before my senior year started, I decided to get my hair cut short. It was very different and I knew that first day of school would be scary, wondering what everyone would think about my new hair. It turned out fine, but I had some serious nerves that morning on the way to school.
Mari Louise: There is always such excitement over all the new possibilities and reuniting with old friends. I never could sleep the night before.
Linda: The best! Always an exciting day.
Patricia: New clothes, new shoes, new books-the best. Walking into your classroom alone the first time- the worst.
Darlene: I always loved the first day of school because I had saved money from working summers and had on a new outfit and fresh school supplies.
Adrienne: I remember moving into a new school in first grade in a new town. I toured the school over the summer and the principal showed my parents and I around, he really made me feel at ease about the transition and made going to school fun.
Karissa: I went to a catholic school, so there were only about 50 kids in my class, not so much to be nervous about and I new the teachers too. I just wasn’t popular, so I always worried who I would buddy up with. I loved my teachers.
Pam: Loved the start of school. Hated the homework!
Jeff: I always liked a new start!
