Got the first day blues, girl? Don’t worry, we know what it’s like to be new at school, at a job, at camp, or pretty much anywhere. On one hand, it’s kind of exciting (new friends! new places to hang out! new crazy local food–yum!); but on the other, it can honestly be a little scary.
No, we’re not saying it’s like Friday the 13th scary, but it can be a little hard to figure out how to act and what to say without being completely awkward all the time.
That’s why we’ve gotten the amazing Meg Haston to help out. Not only has Meg lived in over 15 cities herself (that’s a lot of practice at being new at school and in town!), but she’s also the author of How to Rock Braces and Glasses, which is now the awesome new Nickelodeon show, How to Rock. Add on to that the awesome fact that our homegirl Meg is a licensed counselor, and BAM, we knew she was the perfect person to help you out.
So get ready to not just be new at school, but to be the new girl at school (or work, or wherever!) that everybody wants to get to know. Her tips are amazing.
Check back every Monday for more of her How To Deal wisdom. You might be new at school, but she’s new here at Gurl, and we want to give her a super big welcome. Tell her hi in the comments!
