I guess some of you reading this might actually BE in high school, so forgive the assumption. At this point in my life I’ve forgotten that people that young even exist. For those of us looking back on it, it’s truly a bizarre place. The kind of space where things happen which, out of that context, would never stand up to scrutiny.
But you don’t have to take my word for it. Just listen to these observations, courtesy of the internet.
10. The start time
I woke myself up around 6:00am, regularly, to drive my sister and I to school.
I cannot believe in retrospect that I had this in me.
I can’t believe school used to start before 9am and I actually WENT

9. The five minute mile
If I did that today I’d have to take the rest of the day off.
Remember 4th grade P.E. when you ran a 5 minute mile in street clothes and then went directly to math?

8. The hall passes
Ya gotta get creative when the whole school is completely broke.

7. Square dancing
You may hate this, and it will almost certainly never come in handy, but that doesn’t mean it’s not mandatory.
Me: how do I do my taxes
Public School: shut the fuck up and square dance

6. The theatre kids
I was one of these kids and even I was freaked out by us.
I’m sick of coffee I want whatever theater kids consumed that made them act like that at 8am

5. The fighters
All those hormones with no place to go.
How were mfs in high school up at 730 am ready to fight

4. The anti-theft
Clever ruse, attaching a calculator to a Nokia.
3. The line
Do it. You just gotta.
2. The bathrooms
Abandon hope all ye who enter here.
1. The chairs
I’m gonna go ahead and cast my vote for nay, my butt hurts just looking at this.
At least we all got an education, right? …right?
