An old friend from high school came to visit me and it got me thinking about my high school experience. I am one of those people that didn't particularly enjoy high school and I'm glad it's over. What was high school like for you?
Thanks for sharing!
The great part about looking back at high school is remembering that you're not longer in high school. Amen.
I was one of those Susie High School girls who was involved in everything and loved the experience. Looking back on it, however, I'm terrified of ever having a daughter and having her go through junior high/high school--cruel places indeed.
It was okay, but not great. I had friends, but I was never really part of any one group. I was kind of on the fringes, trying to impress people and be cool, but really I was probably more of a pain in the ass. Incidentally, this sort of thing led to an event that was horribly embarrassing for me at the time, but really helped me realize what I was doing and why I had to stop and find my own personality.
Now that we're older and all that crap is in the past, I'm pretty much friends with all those people who didn't quite like me before. That's one good thing about growing up, I guess.
I did a post on this last month. It was titled:
That pretty much sums up how I felt about my high school experience!
