Things I Miss About High School

Anyone who tells you high school was better than college is lying--but I do miss a few things.


Everything was inside

  • I never pictured myself getting frostbite walking from class to class in high school. Now I can picture it very well.


Sluffing was harder and had less tempting results

  • My on-campus dorm bed is always so close. And there are no judgmental adults between me and a nap.


Tiny milk cartons

  • No one needs more milk than what's in those tiny milk cartons.


Knowing everyone's name

  • Even if they weren't my friends, I shared a big piece of common history with most of the students in my high school.


Assemblies

  • None of us had class from 8 to 9 AM, and someone from the administration was up on stage getting a pie in the face.


Football games cost like three dollars

  • I still don't want to go, but in high school I could show polite interest in sports one day of the year without it costing me a fortune.
