That final day before break ends is an exhausting one: preparing for school and doing laundry is a dread. The following weeks seem to be the time of walking zombies for all. Here are some of the top reasons why going back to school after a long break is the worst.


1. Sleep Cycle
It’s already hard enough getting up early for school; but after staying up late almost every night? It’s a constant struggle for weeks after. Getting back in your normal rhythm can seem impossible. Staying awake in school is a challenge all on its own, but who really got well rested over break? Everyone was out late getting the most out of their time off.

2. Dealing with Teachers
All the work received from teachers is going to be a hassle, especially when trying to change classes with the new semester. They’re expecting everyone to come back ready to work, when really we’re all simply struggling to move out of bed and be functioning humans.

3. Forgetting Information
Coming back from break and having to do work means not remembering a single piece of information. Be prepared to deal with the consequences of brain-dump.

4. Whiplash Whirlwind
