10 Lies HSM Made Me Think High School Was Actually Like

I thought we were all in this together Troy.

10 Lies HSM Made Me Think High School Was Actually Like

1. There is no spontaneous choreographed singing and dancing.

Did I expect this to be real thing? No, but I did hope. The only time there is anything close to this is when someone mentions Bill Nye and everyone starts chanting “BILL BILL BILL”.

2. You do not get that long of a break in between classes.

I’m sorry stereotypical best friend character, but our overarching story line is going to have to wait because I have five minutes to make it to the other side of the school while everyone else is scrambling to get to their classes.

3. The lockers are not that big

I can’t be the only one who wanted Sharpay Evans’ locker. Sometimes it’s better to not even have a locker because, as stated before, you have no time to go to it in between classes most of the time.

4. You don’t get detention for frivolous things.

Ain’t no teacher got time for that. Unless you really piss a teacher off or they really just need someone to help them, they are not going to stay after school with you for an hour just so you can learn a lesson because they have things to do to.

5. Not everyone shows up for high school sporting events.

Sure, maybe for the more popular sports like football and basketball, but for other sports? Probably not. Sorry fencing team.

6. There is way more studying than you would think.

Not everyone can ride on their basketball career CHAD. For my junior year I had an average of three hours of homework a night, meanwhile I’m pretty sure not one person opened a book during the entire High School Musical franchise.

7. You don’t need a date to go to prom.

This is probably one of the most underrepresented things in high school movies. Sure, if you have a special someone to go with, go ahead and have an awesome time, but if you are really stressing about having a date, screw that. Go with people who you know you’ll have a great time with, not just the ones who will take a good picture with you. I can’t tell you how great of a time you’ll have dancing like an idiot

with your best friends.8. You carry around a backpack.

This is just one of those things that really bothered me when I went back to watch these movies. Even when they did have backpacks slung on them, you could tell they were basically empty, which is just false advertising. Also probably why there isn’t that much actual dancing in school because people have these twenty pound weights on their shoulders.

9. You can’t just break into your high school in the middle of the night.

We get it Troy, you need to sing about your feelings, but what you’re doing is called trespassing.

10. You can’t just carry around a ball from a sport you play all day.

It’s just guaranteed to be taken up by a teacher. Plus keeping up with a spherical object for eight hours sounds like an unnecessary hassle to put yourself through.

Christmas traditions

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate. Some religions like the Islam do not even celebrate Christmas and then you have others, the Buddhists, who use the holiday to practice their religion of spreading peace and goodwill. In no particular order, I would like to demonstrate a little culture about the ways Christmas is celebrated or is not celebrated throughout five different religions.
