Heya, peeps, I’m back! While summer is still burning bright, I can’t help but start to think about September… the cooling weather, the leaves changing color… and school!
The Super School Giveaway starts in a few days, and you’ll be getting some really cool stuff every day that you log in. I thought it would be a good time to get ready, so I started designing my perfect dorm room!
As you can see, I sorta went with a purple theme here. What do you think? I wanted to have a single occupant room so I could concentrate on my studies, and I wanted it to be functional AND cute. What do you guys think?
I decided to ask the good folks around Kinzville what advice they might have for students going back to school, and this is what they had to say:
Ella: Hey, Ms. Cowoline! Thanks for letting me interview you. I wanted to ask what advice you had for students heading to the Kinzville Academy.
Ms. Cowoline: It’s my pleasure, Ella. I’m always happy to help my little students out. The most important thing, more than anything, is to understand that everything takes time, practice and persistence. While some students may be naturally talented at some things, it may take a bit more work to improve in other areas. There’s nothing wrong with that — failure is just a stepping stone on the road to success!
Ella: Thanks, Ms. Cowoline! I’ll keep that in mind the next time I try the Agility class. I’m just no good at hurdles!
Ella: Hi, Salley! It’s nice to see you again. Are you ready for school to start up again?
Salley: Oh, yes… I can’t wait! I’ve got big plans for this year — I’m running for student council president again!
Ella: That’s great! How are you preparing for school?
Salley: Well, for starters, I’m working on my summer reading list so I don’t fall behind. And I’ve been doing a lot of independent studying on things I find interesting — it doesn’t feel like work when it’s stuff you like!
Ella: That’s a good point, Salley — thanks for the advice!
Ella: Hi, Cowabelle! I thought you might have an interesting point of view when it comes to getting ready for school!
Cowabelle: Oh, you’re so right, Ella! It can be hard to be the daughter of the school superintendent, but my mom’s pretty good about letting me have enough free time to do the things I love… even if that’s nothing! Since I haven’t had any mayoral duties, I’ve been making sure I get plenty of rest — I want to make sure I have all the energy I’ll need for another good school year.
Ella: That sounds very relaxing, Cowabelle. I could go for a nap, myself! Thanks for the advice… I think I just might do that right now.
And there you have it, peeps… What’s your best advice for students getting ready to go back to school? I think I’ll take Cowabelle’s advice and go for a nice snooze to rest up… and maybe I’ll read a book after.
Until next time, it’s been real!
