When I was a kid, the weeks leading up to a new school year where actually exciting for me and I loved to shop for new notebooks and other supplies.
I would accompany my mom on the shopping trip and when we would get home I would get everything we purchased organized and load up my school bag, ready to go for the first day of school.
School uniforms weren't a requirement, so shopping for school clothes was probably the best part of the back-to-school experience.
Trying on different outfits and coordinating shoes and shirts was like my own personal fashion show and I absolutely had to pick out the perfect ensemble for my first day back at school.
I never really complained about going to school but I did fall victim to the first-day jitters.
I can remember feeling really nervous the night before the new school year began, worrying about whether or not I would like my teachers and if any of my friends would be in my classes.
I wouldn't be able to sleep and eating breakfast the next morning just wasn't going to happen.
I would have nightmares of missing the school bus or not being able to find my classroom, but I always made it through the first day without fail and made it home with good feelings about the year ahead.
It's been eight years since I graduated from high school and two years since I completed college, and although I flourished the most in a classroom setting, I must say that I am glad my school days are a thing of the past.
