To School For Cool – The Guide of Surviving School

To School For Cool

Nope, you are not mistaken and, no, I did not get my title wrong for today is the day that I venture back to school. Yep, that’s right. No more lying in for me – back to the early mornings, hard work and in between class rush.

If you are dreading going back to school then you should worry no more as I am here with The Guide of Surviving School!

The Playlist

When tackling back-to-school blues some great tracks can help you get through it all. Before going to school and after school, I suggest listening to this carefully picked playlist. I will link to all of the songs though I’m only going to add a few of the videos to save space and keep the article’s pace up.

TED Talks

Here are three TEDTalks to take inspiration from, well worth the watch! TED also has hundereds more inspirational talks to watch or listen and I seriously recommend watching them.


Some days we just need a little pick-me-up – something to give us that extra drive so we can keep going. The day you go back to school/work can often be one of them. Here are some quotes to keep you going:

“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” – Winston Churchill

“Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.” – John F. Kennedy

“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.” – Dr. Seuss

“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.” – Dr. Seuss

“It’s great to be here. It’s great to be anywhere.” – Keith Richards

Step 5: Feel empowered.

Now, have a good day. 😉
