There are some things that happened in high school that we thought were completely normal that really, really weren’t. When you’re young, you don’t realize how serious some of the drama actually is, like that one teacher who got fired from your school or the girl who faked a whole pregnancy for attention. Times were weird but most likely everyone was too self absorbed to think about how crazy it all was.
Here are some pieces of high school nostalgia that might make you full body cringe.
1. We had to get there way too early
2. People totally overreacted to things
3. Teachers needing 30 extra seconds of attention
4. Girl I don’t know how to add anymore
5. Stabbing yourself with a mechanical pencil and the mark never leaving you
6. Putting on the stinkiest pinnies that reeked of stale sweat
7. This is true American culture
