The more I look back on my days in high school, the more I just think they were kind of…weird.
I can’t really put my finger on the exact thing that made the whole situation odd, but I guess it’s just a combination of all sorts of things. And I guess that’s bound to happen when you shove more than a thousand crazy teenagers under one roof for seven hours a day.
And no matter where you went to high school and what years you attended, there is definitely something universal about the experience across the board.
And that’s what makes these posts so funny!
Let’s take a look at things that seemed perfectly normal while we were in school but just seem kind of weird when we reminisce about those days.
1. This is pretty true.
high school teachers you could be real with:

2. The popular high schooler.
Many of them peak at that point, too.
It's weird how in high school, "popular" was a personality and it wasn't even really that connected to the actual number of friends a person had. It was more like a genre of high schooler.

3. No way that’s happening these days.
Time to pound the pavement!

5. He was a real wiseguy.
It was always a boy…just saying…

Beware of these people.

9. What a terrible idea that was…
Remember 4th grade P.E. when you ran a 5 minute mile in street clothes and then went directly to math?

10. You don’t need to know that stuff!
Here’s the stuff you’ll need in the future.
Me: how do I do my taxes
Public School: shut the fuck up and square dance

11. Doesn’t matter anymore.
You put that out of your mind years ago.
I can’t believe I used to think I was ugly in high school because boys who wore shorts in the winter and had a 2.5 gpa didn’t like me

12. Total insanity.
