The last 48 hours before school starts are the hardest.

You know what’s going to happen, you are ready for it, and you can do it. But 48 hours out, you start to feel apprehensive.

Like most people, I was always nervous for the first day of school in elementary school. And middle school, high school. The first day back after a long illness. First day of each college semester.

First day after Christmas Break.

Knowing you can do something isn’t the same as doing it. It’s OK to be apprehensive, even if it’s something you have done twenty times before. The important thing is to not let this feeling take away your last day of vacation.

Take deep breaths, and enjoy your whole break.
