We induleg ourselves in good books, NetFlix, family vacations, and summer BBQ's, and then BAM... we get the dreaded school letter in the mail reminding us that the start of school is only a few breach vacations and bad sunburns away. For some, going back to school is exciting, for others, like myself, the start of school is cause for anxiety and restless nights. And few transitions create more anxiety than freshman year of high school.
