Five Reasons why you don't miss High School

1. Dress Code

If you are a girl, forget it, you might as well just throw a parka on because you're getting in trouble if an inch of skin is showing. You might think you will get away with it that day because it's not like your hands are by your sides at all times, they will never know that your shorts are just .5 of a centimeter shorter than your finger tips, but oh wait here comes the assistant principle to bring you to ISS. The argument is that dressing inappropriately will distract the boys. I'm sorry, but unless you are stripped down into your bra and underwear then we should not have a problem. Sorry boys, us girls didn't mean to distract you.

2. 6 Hour Days

Unless you are a senior, you are stuck in school for your full 6 hours of torture. It's truly never ending. The sad part is that six hours is not even a long time. (p.s.) Stop watching the clock, it only makes it worse.

3. Drama

You will have the douchebag boys who are literally in love with themselves, and the bitch girls that think they are entitled to everything. You're going to get into fights with your best friends (it's inevitable) and they're most likely going to steal your boyfriend.

4. Homework

Yeah, don't even get me started. The 6 hours of torture wasn't enough, so lets give you kids 8 more hours of work to do at home....per class.... Not to mention, the homework is usually 100x harder or has completely nothing to do with the lesson you learned that day!!! Thank you for lowering my GPA significantly!! It's very much appreciated!

5. Fire Drills

You will never be warned for a fire drill. So, if it's -5 degrees outside, and you don't have a sweatshirt, it's really too bad because you are about to freeze your butt off for the next 20 minutes, because until every single human being is out of the building, they are not letting you back in!

Five Reasons why you Do miss High School

1. Student/ Teacher bonds

You probably have that favorite teacher(s)/employee(s) in the building that you just can't get through your day without seeing. That person will give you advice whether it's about school or just life in general, and will mentor you through your full four years in High School.

2. Spirit Week/ Pep-Rallies

You finally have a reason to look forward to school this week. You get to go all out on your favorite day (80's Day) without being judged! The pep-rally is on Friday and lets be real, it's Friday and anything that takes two hours out of your school day is going to be exciting, all the fun stuff you do at the pep-rallies is just a bonus.

3. Sports

Whether you are on a sports team or not you can still experience the games. Friday Night Football games are a school favorite and all your peers gather to cheer on your school's favorite sports team.

4. Friends

Throughout High School you will create life long best friends that will or will not be by your side for the rest of your life. The fact is that if it wasn't for them bringing you ice cream when your boyfriend broke up with you, then you probably wouldn't have been able to get over that douchebag.

5. Snow Days

Snow days don't happen in the real world so just be thankful.

Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

It will be okay, eventually.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
