I don't miss High School.

I do wish I had my current level of confidence/intellect though. Man was I a dumb straight A student.

The day I turned 16 was the Monday I got the driver license to never take the god forsaken school bus again. Luckily in middle/high schools I had someone able to drive me home except for sixth and tenth grades. It was nice having my fine-ass neighbor drive me home though. Ninth grade me had it lucky.

I do kinda wish to know what everyone from my graduating class is up to today. More as a curiosity thing than a catching up with old friends thing. Only had one actual friend in HS and we actually work the same job now. So that's nice. I do wish I was able to keep up with one other one though. She was the one other star wars nerd I knew ;-;

Having to stay in the building for 6+ hours straight, 5 days a week. College schedules are so much more flexible and it's great.

I don't miss the language classes there L0L

So useless, who even learns languages to any reasonable degree from them? They don't even teach things like IPA or intonation types and differences or how to find comprehensible listening input and techniques for incorporating them.

Most of the shitty teachers.
I should rephrase that . . .
Most of the teachers were shitty . . .
There were a few good ones but most of the teachers I had, got their jobs through brown-nosing and felching.

Seriously, there were multitudes of parents that complained about this.

As for the "gifted' students, most every one of them I knew complained that their teachers needed to get out of the way.
I am still surprised how narcissistic many of my high school teachers were.

Getting up early in the morning to catch the bus, as well as being bullied by people who knew me for years.

lot of thing have changed since I gradulated from high school. I heard that if Student miss few days of school, the parent go to jail! I remember friend of mine and I decided to skip school and walk to the Movie Theater and than walk back to the dorm.. Long day walking around, but we were good shape at that time. This when I was at School for the Deaf.

The secret to living a healthy adult life is realizing that high school was important, but high schoolERS weren't:
Most of us at that age thought that social acceptance was the be-all and end-all of existence, and therefore didn't spend time developing any actual individual personality, unless you were lucky to be one of the 1% yearbook-overachievers.
Worse yet was if you had enough friends to believe you were having a good time, which means you had to leave it after graduation, and probably spent your entire twenty-something years into your thirties trying to get them back. You won't.

Me, I was on the socially-unaccepted end of the scale, but I didn't mind as much: I thought what my peers were doing was a little nutty and obnoxious, so I felt a sort of anti-peer-presure ("If I ever end up like that, shoot me."), and all I had to fall back on were the books.
So, I had to figure things out on my own early, and that's at the stage most of us are having too much fun to notice.

Now, as an adult, I have the rationed leisure time and actual income to indulge in the good things I missed without having to act like an idiot, or do them with other teenage idiots I feel some insecurity-obligation to live up to. Best of both.

I guess the homework since I always did it in the school anyway. Or having to have permission to go into a damn library.

I miss the free time I had as a jobless 14 year old. I can't sit in the same spot all weekend and binge play a game or watch 20 hours of movies a day.

I don't miss the regular long commute to school. I was getting up at 4am to beat the traffic and get to school at 8.30. I've never had such long commutes since then. I've made sure that I work in places against the flow of rush hours traffic or close enough for a walk.

You had to get permission to go into a Library ? That's so dumb
