    Today my friends and I came back home for Homecoming. We all went out to eat and told stories about our college experience. While we were talking we began to reminisce about our days in high school. Prom, our Class trip, and our traditional dinners we had.

    I just want to know what are some of the things you miss about your High School...

    Nothing. I dropped out because it made me want to kill myself.

    Nada. Too much angst, too little self-confidence.

    That the work was literally such a joke. . .at least in high school if I spent five hours writing a paper I was pretty confident I'd get a perfect score. . .but I just got my grade on my first paper for Philosophy, and I worked forever on it and it required a lot of meta-ethical thought. . .only to get an 85. WHAT THE FUCK?!

    So, I miss how easy it was.

    Absolutely NOTHING!! For a fag growing up in the rural Bible Belt, it was pure hell. Thank God I had amazing parents! I'm not where I wish I were now in my personal life, but I wouldn't go back to high school for anything.

    Life was easier...

    It didn't matter if my uniform was ratty
    Nobody would notice if I didn't show up to class
    I chatted and flung food at others during lunch instead of making phone calls and answering emails
    You can be obscene and rude without caring you offended others

    All of my friends were in one place. Now they're all spread throughout the country.

    While I didn't have a horrible experience in high school, it paled to what happened in college, which was awesome. I was an honor student in HS, did the newspaper editing thing, extracurricular activities to a limited extent... I think what I miss the most is what I didn't do in high school and probably should have, but, eh, I had fun later and grew from it so what the hay.....

    Can't say I miss a thing about it either. Hell, it's hard to remember high school.

    Nixon was re-elected during my senior year. Does that give you a clue???

    I had a great time in h.s. and college. I had to maintain a 4.0 so I spent most of my time studying. I also learned to play H20-polo and ran track. I wasn't allowed to have a car, since it might affect my grades, so I walked or rode my bike everywhere, unless friends with cars gave me rides. I was allowed to drive the family cars on weekends though. I learned to lift weights and buffed out and got rid of my zits by my second year of h.s. I have a lot of good memories. I had girlfriends, but was moving toward boyfriends with a few intrepid guys who were gay or bi. I had a blast, for the most part.

    Absolutely nothing. Felt like a jail sentence. I was so glad to get out and really start to steer my own life. Never been to a high school reunion and probably never will. My best friend from school died unexpectedly 6 years after we graduated so no reason to want to go back.

    I did that, had a blast, but a word of advise. If teachers are still there from when you were a student, do not talk about them to the current students, even if it a good thing.

    What do I miss? Probably just the groups of friends I hung out with and just being in the classroom learning rather than stuck in a cubi working
