Now, for this analogy to work I think it's pretty important that you understand I do not believe in astrology. This will not be a celebration of how my Year 9 career aptitude test told me I would be exactly where I am today, or the accuracy of my daily star chart.
Come to think of it, I don’t think I’ve ever looked at a daily star chart, nor am I interested in doing so. Don’t get me wrong,
I think that astrology is incredibly smart! It takes very limited knowledge of an individual and provides some sort of conclusion to which they can think, “Huh… I do that.” It’s genius. However, I don’t think many of us would base a huge life decision off an astrology prediction…
Schools are once again open. Dust is being scraped from desks, mice are finding themselves evicted from projectors and teachers are trying to remember how to write.
You’re going back to school, after maybe a year of learning from home (or in bubbles), separated from your teacher and your friends by a screen and the whims of the Wi-Fi. So, how on earth are you expected to concentrate?
You’re not alone if it appears overwhelming. A key point to remember is that everyone is in the same situation as you. Even your teachers will be a little stunned by so much human contact.
Well, I’m sure none of us thought we’d still be in this situation a year ago. As much as things seem to feel the same, or even worse after 12 months of a global pandemic, it’s important to acknowledge how far we’ve come.
Globally, the vaccines have given us a lot of hope to return to a ‘new normal’, but on a personal and social scale, we’ve almost made it through COVID-19! We’ve all faced our own challenges, whether that’s losing a loved one, coping with mental health issues or keeping up with schoolwork; I can’t stress enough how important it is to recognise the challenges these 12 months have brought. Give yourself some credit for what you’ve been through!
