There is nothing that can compare to high school. People always said to enjoy those years and the people you spend them with because college is something entirely different.

Back then, you probably didn't think so.

But now, college-bound and away from that life, you start to miss those days you were so quick to wish away.

1. Going to school with your home friends every day

There was nothing better than having class with all of your friends. The talking never stopped and the team work on assignments was plenty.

2. Knowing everyone you see in the halls

Yeah, I see you, Jimmy from third grade who gave me a Valentine's note. Don't you worry, I will never forget that. You're the realest.

3. Having teachers who knew your siblings

Depending on how your older sibling(s) were in class, this could either be a good thing or a bad thing. Hopefully, the teacher loved your sibling, which would mean they would love you and would give you an easy A.

4. Spirit Week

Undeniably the best week of school.

5. Driving to school

This is something you definitely took advantage of when you still had it. Now you have to hike five miles just to sit in one class.

6. Friday night football games

Games were fun because you actually knew people from the other school, and you wanted to see them get crushed by your team so bad. Now, you go to a game and don't know a single person on the other team, which makes it a little less interesting.

7. Gym class AKA gossip hour

If you thought I was walking a mile without hearing about who got horrible highlights or how Kyle broke up with Kaitlyn, then you clearly don't know high school girls.

8. Prom

Dress shopping with your best friends and taking pictures that will be with you forever are the moments that everyone wishes they can turn back to.

9. Being able to go home every day

Food. Mom. My own bed. No roommate. What more could you ask for?

10 Lab Struggles All Students Can Relate To

From the hours spent on pre-lab, in the lab, and post-lab, lab takes up so much time and energy.

For all pre-med students (and anyone who takes a physical science class), you become immediately familiar with labs. But the labs in college are nothing like the trivial, simple, low-stakes labs that you completed in elementary, middle, and high school. Nothing compares to the brutal, rigorous, complex labs that you will endure during your years of college (except maybe brain surgery itself).

1. I don't want to go.



We all think it. We all say it. It's an every week sentiment, not just a once in a while feeling that you get with your other lectures. Walking to lab is like walking to your prison sentence.



2. Four hours is a crazy long time.



Some surgeries are shorter. Let's be honest-why are these labs so long? No eating, drinking, going to the bathroom, or sitting...is that even legal?



3. I am going to be efficient and productive.



My lab partner and I will read over the procedure several times, divide up the work, and be out of here in no time. Ideally, I want to be out of here in three hours max. Okay, more realistically it will be in 4 hours from the start time.

4. Why can't we sit?



But really, I still don't understand how we can be expected to stand and think for so long. The length of the lab itself is brutal enough to endure, but the fact that you don't get to sit means for sure that the post-lab grade is going to suffer.

5. I should drop the class.



I have to do this next week? And the week after? I don't think I'll ever take a class with a lab component ever again. r?

6. Does anyone else look like they know what they are doing?



The lab partners across from us look confused too, right? Or are we the only ones still on Part 1 of the experiment?

7. I don't care how I do. I want to get out of here as quickly as possible.



Whatever grade we get at this point, it doesn't really matter. I just need to get out of here. Plus, they drop the lowest grade, don't they?

8. Does my lab partner understand what we're doing...because I don't.

We haven't started the post lab, or done the calculations. Which part do I get, and which part can my lab partner figure out? The clock is ticking and my feet hurt.

9. Are all of the other groups leaving? Where did everyone go?

Oh shoot. Why did it get so quiet? Are they leaving too? Man, I've got to get out of here. My goggles are fogging up and giving me a headache.

10. Wow, these goggle marks are hideous.



These are going to last for at least another 3 hours. Well, at least I get to leave...and do this again next week.
