Nah, nothing special happened. Was shit for almost all of it, and my mates would ditch me for a tenner.

I'm not in high school (I'm currently in my last college course) but I miss my friends from high school. Should've asked for their email addresses but it wasn't on my mind at the time. I don't miss high school in general because its a place where, I don't know why, the most ignorant, noisy, belligerent, and shallow people roam the halls. Now not everyone is like this, but a school just makes you run into them more. Its like school lost its point of being a place for education.

I think everyone goes through phases when they miss it... particularly during your quarter-life crisis (right after college when it hits you that high school is pretty much the easiest time of your life). adulthood can really bite sometimes... to be successful, it's like the groundhog day of your "finals week" at college, except it's every week for the rest of your life. gone are the days where you could actually spend free time actually doing nothing without it costing you something in return. le sigh.

but at the same time, there isn't anything on the planet that you could give me to go back to being a teenager. teenage angst and hormones are just... wow. something you definitely do not miss once you get over them. and the insecurity? being a stranger in your own body? yikes. i'll pass on any chance to re-experience those nightmares. everything seems like such a HUGE DEAL when you are growing up (break ups, the lunch table you sit at, flunking a quiz, losing the big football game), and then you look back at all of those oh-so-earth-shattering experiences you had at 15 and wish your "problems" as an adult were as minor as they were back then (and you wish you could go back and kick your high school self in the ass and tell assure yourself that in 10 - 15 years, you will laugh about the things that made you want to throw yourself off a bridge as a teenager).

friends and significant others come and go. so does popularity, youth, and naivety. the most important thing you take out of high school is experience, and that never goes away.

Meh, I miss it a bit I guess. Only because of my friends who are all in their 12th grade right now, I've already graduated, well, just in June. But, high school did give me something to do. I'm currently on a one-year break from school.

I will never miss it.

Every transition between schools, then to College etc. is just a method of scaring children. People say the expectations are higher and things are harder. To be honest it's almost the opposite but with more freedom. I still see people from my previous schools, most of which acted like complete idiots to get attention, but as a result of growing up they can actually hold a conversation.

I miss the people more than I do the actual school itself. I moved states after graduation, so I don't really see anyone I used to know these days. /nostalgia

I miss aspects of it, yeah. I'm a nostalgic person in general, though.

I do miss school to a certain degree. As I gotten older, I feel like my life is better now because I know what I want to do, by being career focused. Years ago in High School (and therefore Primary School as well), I didn't know what I really wanted. I kind of miss the friendships that I may have developed in those days. Although these days, most of them just snob me, yet clearly they know who I am. So I snob them off too.
