Sometimes I think I was the only person who just went to high school for 4 bland, uneventful years and promptly forgot all about it immediately afterward.

The thing I'm really grateful for is that we didn't have Facebook back then. So much drama that escaped being permanently recorded.

Yup. I've tried explaining this to some kids but without any success.

It's tragic when someone who was a high school loser can't get over it. It's even more sad to see someone whose glory days were in high school.

I did learn some important social lessons from my high school days. #1: You know everything you need to know about a person's character based on how they treat people when they don't have to be nice to them.

I never went to a reunion. Not angry or bitter.....I never missed high school. Besides, it wouldn't make me happy to see the cute girls I lusted after all fat and beaten down by life. I prefer to remember them the way they were.....young and fine.

I can only wonder if the people that do these studies are the ones who never move on.

In my case this doesn't hold up. In high school I was a lonely, stupid, directionless loser, but now as an adult I'm....good article.

Didn't Bowling for Soup write a song about this years ago?

A good reason to go away to college, make new friends, earn respect for who you are now rather than get dragged down by the disrespect you earned in high school.  And rarely, if ever, go back.

People like to think they have other people figured out.
