Thats wonderful! I remember my first day of high school! I was so scared and excited! I would say you should definitely pray about it daily. Let God know what scares you and ask him to help you overcome your fears. Ask him to give you confidence and boldness and to bring the right friends to you.
I would also say that you should pick an outfit that you feel confident in. It doesn’t have to be expensive or something that isn’t you but just something in your closet that you look cute in. I’ve found that when I wear clothes that fit me well and I feel confident and comfortable in, I am more likely to feel more confident talking to people I don’t know through out the day. Just note not to overdo it and look like you’re trying too hard.
Also, don’t overthink it. Trust me, everyone is feeling scared about their first day of high school. Some people might be able to hide it better than others and some might have old friends with them to make the move to high school easier. I would say that since its a new district for you, come to school a little early and sit next to someone who looks friendly. Also have a smile on your face and look fun and approachable. Even if you feel terrified on the inside, try to appear confident by maintaining eye contact and smiling when you talk to people. Also, it might help to think of conversation starters before your first day just so you know what to say. Some people may be mean or snobbish, and your first day may not go so well. But just pray about it and ask God for a wonderful high school experience. He loves you and wants the best for you. The bible also tells us that whatever we ask in Jesus’ name, he will give us.
Also, pray with this verse from 2 timothy 1:7 “For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.” Remind God of his word and ask him to honor it in your life.
About getting lost, in my first week of college, I got lost almost everyday. It’s not a big deal. Just be able to laugh about it and ask someone for directions.
So in summary, Pray before school. Work on looking confident even though you may be terrified on the inside. Go to school with the mindset of wanting to learn while having fun. Be yourself! People can always sense when a person is trying to be someone they aren’t. Even if you’re nerdy (like me lol) Be a confident nerd! Be confident in yourself and people will gravitate towards you.
Hope this helps,
