Me, I like the fact that I don't have to stay on campus for lunch.
In all seriousness, I loved playing basketball. I was damn good! If only God had blessed me with more height than 5 foot 7 inches . . . I might still be playing today.
What was my favorite thing about high school?
Well... the Spirit Week that ends with Homecoming in the fall and Winter Carnival in the winter. Each day of Spirit Week had a theme. Only ones I can remember were Retro Day, Pajama Day, Red-White-Blue Day, and of course, Friday of Spirit Week was the day where you wear the school colors (my high school colors were blue and gold).
And Prom -- nothing beats Prom. Our school holds Prom for both juniors and seniors, and all of our Proms are themed. In my junior year, the Prom theme was Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory, and in my senior year, it was New York City.
Raging hormones that I couldn't control.
the sense of semi-freedom just knowing that you can take care of yourself and being taken care of.knowing people 4 years and having good friends the parties and the joy of doing things underage and feeling like you da man just knowing ur getting away with it and of course boobies.
Getting the fuck out of there.
But to be a bit more in depth, I went to a Catholic School so we had to wear a uniform. Girls wore kilts so seeing ass and legs all day made it some what enjoyable.
watching the boy's basketball team fail epicly in sneaking into he girl's locker room funniest thing i have even seen
lucky......for me it is the girls (when i turn 18 that's all over for me hell it never started for me) and band. man band kicks major ass, i'm goin to miss that the most
Honestly the mass Jackassery that my friends and I did and hardly ever got busted for.
Another thing I missed about high school -- the pranks that the seniors made towards the end of the school year.
I remember in my sophomore year in high school, the seniors released a few birds in the school building -- I can't remember what birds they were, they had to have been either cockatiels or parakeets -- or similar.
Some boys in my class tried to release chickens inside the school for our senior prank. It obviously didn't go according to plan...
Being overseas for the entire thing. It was such a special experience going to highschool in an international school in a communist country. It made me realize that I shouldn't take anything for granted.
Also being on a varsity team and being able to travel to Japan and the Philippines was a lifetime experience.
Now that would have been sweet. Which country if you don't mind me asking?
China. I spent 6 years there going to the International School of Beijing from middle to highschool.
It was a private school for expats and embassy kids. It was, and still is, expensive as hell as far as tuition goes but that's because the families usually have backing from the embassies or companies on the tuition. Single year tuition for highschool was like $15,000. Now the highschool tuition is like $20,000+ a year.
When I first got there the student body was very small. We didn't even have a graduating class until the second year I was there. Now it's a huge school with state of the art facilities and all that.
The best thing was we had a thing called China Studies trips every year. Each year every class from middle school and up got to go to a different city in China for a week to explore and learn. It was a fantastic program.
For our varsity sports we had the APAC Tournament each year where a different international school would host for a week. The teams where the Canadian Academy in Kobe (Japan), Osaka International School (Japan), Shanghai American School (China), Seoul American School (South Korea), Brent Academy (Philippines).
I was able to go to Osaka for my junior year in varsity and Philippines for my senior year.
We also had Model United Nations which made trips the The Hague in the Netherlands every year but I wasn't a part of that.
my first girlfriend.
she's back in my life but we both lived on our lives.
im just happy to have my friend back.
