After a long, relaxing summer spent playing outside and eating popsicles, children everywhere are finally heading back to school. Back to a life of learning, responsibilities and trying to keep it together.
One kid had no idea just how grueling a day on the job could be.
An Imgur user shared hilarious before and after photos of the girl's first day back on that elementary school grind, and after seven hours of meeting new classmates and pencil pushing, she became almost unrecognizable.
The morning of her big day, the excited young girl's hair was in soft curls with a bow, the cuffs on her denim jacket were perfectly folded, her tulle skirt was fancifully fluffed and she had a huge smile.
Hopefully day two goes a little better for this little future leader.
