Lately, I have been all kinds of nostalgic thinking about all the things you miss about high school. Seeing pictures of high school friends pop up on my Facebook timeline makes realize all the things you will miss about high school after graduation. It also makes me regret wishing away high school so quickly. I have also been reading and hearing about how other people are missing so much about college…but wasn’t high school really the best and easiest part of our lives?
High school is a time when many of us come into our own, with still many awkward phases showing up. We find our friends, where we belong, and what makes us unique. While we changed so much throughout those four years, the memories will always be planted in our brains (and hearts). From your first kiss to your first heartbreak, high school is a time not to be forgotten by anyone.
Being out of high school almost four years now has really allowed me to see how great it actually was. Summers were so much less stressful with part-time jobs instead of internships, and everything was generally more care-free. Regardless of how much you don’t like school, there are so many things you miss about high school.
