What going back to school in 2020 feels like, explained in GIFs

Back to school is right around the corner (and may have already started for some of us!). The start of a new school year is always an exciting time, but things are looking a bit different this year thanks to coronavirus—here are 10 GIFs that show what it feels like to go back to school during these crazy times. 

Waiting alllll summer for the *official* announcement about in person or online school...

Feeling sad when you find out you're going to have online school (again, sigh)...

OR alternatively, finding out you're going back to in-person school and feeling nervous about what that will be like this year...

Having fun looking for the *cutest* face masks to pair with all your school outfits...

Scheduling an emergency Zoom call with all your friends to make sure you're in the same classes (even if you're online, you still want to smile at them through the screen during math class!)

Dreading the moment when your teacher will assign you to a Zoom breakout room with a random classmate to discuss the summer reading...

Watching high school movies to live vicariously through the characters at school (High School Musical, anyone?)...

Wishing school could be normal, and being rightfully upset because... it's not...

...but still getting pumped because online school means you get to wear pajamas to class!

And lastly, feeling hopeful that you'll soon return to normal school and reunite with all your friends! 

Have a great back-to-school, and remember to stay extra safe this year!
