10 Things I Will Always Miss About High School

High School truly is the glory days.

It's been 5 years now since I graduated from Beauregard High School. That's crazy to me! I wish all the time I could go back. There are plenty of great memories I have. As for you kids still in high school, your gonna wish you could go back no matter how much you want out of that hell hole.

Trust me, my high school was a hellhole but the greatest place at the same time.

1. Life was simple

All you had to do was show up, hang out, and do some class work and boom you're done. No dealing with bills, no paying for an apartment or house, no having to get a full-time job or having to do crazy college assignments or clinical.

2. You got to see friends everyday

I was told by one of my best friends that graduated two years before I did that once me and a couple other guys graduate, it's all gonna change. It definitely did. You don't see your school friends every day and you don't see your best friends as often. I moved away for college and another one of our best friends moved away for work. We see each other and have great times still. Then I see high school buddies whenever I'm around town and catch up some but it's just not the same.

3. The teachers

Yes, I said it. You will miss the teachers. You'll miss the fun teachers and the hard teachers. I had teachers who had daughters in the class under me and they were some of my best teachers along with my coaches. One teacher I remember everyone hated but I loved him, even though he was a hard history teacher. He was just challenging us to do a better job and I thank him still for that.

4. Shop

This won't hit the girls as much as the guys but the shop was where it was at. Crazy ass things happened in there from rebuilding an engine, catching on fire welding, or frying some chicken/grilling steak in the middle of the shop. I believe every guy should take shop and enjoy it and I bet you'll miss it. I saw a buddy I had shop classes off and on with all four years the other day and had a great time catching up talking about the fun times.

5. Sports

Whether you played sports or watched the games you'll miss it. Being under the lights on Friday night or being on the diamond is a great feeling until the day you end up on the sideline or the dugout coaching. For others, it's cheering on your friends and classmates. It just feels different when you see these people in class or the hallway every day and then see them play a big game.

6. Pep Rally’s 

I know some people hated pep rally's and wouldn't show but for others, it was a great time to go bat shit crazy at school. I loved pep rally's and even won most school spirit senior year by wearing some crazy outfits and painting myself crazy colors.

7. Homecoming week

For my school, homecoming week gave us a week to dress up as crazy as possible. I won one day every year. The unfortunate part is I could've won more but the most we could win was one day a week. Then there were the homecoming pep rally games. I'm a big guy — 6'6", 280 lbs — so I was always put in the tug of war and typically held my own.

8. The lunches

Yes, everyone's favorite period. The tables where the real shit happens. The food wasn't all that great except pizza day. But getting to eat lunch with friends every day was great. Then there was the sneaking to the gas station right down the street and hoping you don't get caught.

9. The principal 

At my school, we have a principal who's been there longer than the high school itself. Ole Dickie Brown has either coached or been principal of everyone's parents at the school. Then he loves the pep rally's more than the students and doing two bits.

10. The bus rides

For those that rode the bus once you get to high school, you're the high class back of the bus students that everyone looks up to. It's also the wildest spot on the bus.

There are many other reasons and more in-depth details on why you will miss high school but these are my top 10. My best advice is to enjoy your time in school and when you're young because it goes by quick and then life happens.

13 Father's Day Shirts Under $30 To Gift The Dad Wearing The Same Two Every Day In Quarantine

You've been begging him to change it up, and now he won't have a choice.

Let's be honest: most of our dads are wearing the same shirts today that they probably wore while changing our diapers and holding our hands as we learned to walk. Sure, we love them for it. But whether you're quarantined with him wearing the same two shirts on rotation every week, or every time you FaceTime him, you know what he'll be wearing before he answers the phone, he needs to add some new items to his wardrobe rotation.

And you know dads — they'll feel guilted into using practically anything you were to give them. But these shirts are sure-fire ways to get him to switch up his wardrobe, and he'll be more than excited to wear each and every one of them. Plus, most of them are under twenty dollars, so no harm in dropping more than a couple in to your cart and letting Dad have his pick of his favorites.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Hollis Tuttle To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

My Boyfriend Has Changed Since Quarantine Began, And I Don't Know What To Do

"All he says is 'I love you,' which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him."

Each week Swoonie B will give her advice on anonymous topics submitted by readers. Want to Ask Swoonie B something related to dating and relationships? Fill out this form here — it's anonymous.

Dear Swoonie B,

My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost a year, which has been the best year of my life (as far as i know). Well we go to different schools and are both very involved in sports and school activities which makes it hard to see each other. During this quarantine it is especially hard. Since we haven't seen each other in over a week things are kind of tense. He won't really talk to me much and I always check in on him to make sure he is doing well and to just see how he is, ya know being a girlfriend. Well apparently that is driving him crazy and I don't understand how. I'm not being controling or clingy, i'm just checking in on him. While this is happening, I also have noticed how he just doesn't really care anymore. I'll leave him paragraphs of sweet love letters to wake up to and I encourage him throughout his day but I just don't get it in return. I love him with all of me and I obviously care about him a lot. Also, I've compared how he talked to me before all of this has happened. He was so sweet and caring, texting me a lot and telling me he loves me and just making sure everything is OK but he doesn't do that anymore. All he says is "I love you," which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him. He is a little stressed at home with trying to find another job to pay for his car, constantly having to do things for his mom, being responsible for his siblings, and managing school. I know thats a lot but im doing a lot too right now and going through a lot of the same stuff he is but It seems to me he just does not care and i don't know what to do. Please help me or give me some advice on what to say, what not to say, what to do, what not to do. Anything at this point will help. Thank you!

If I had a dollar for every time I heard "these are unprecedented times," I'd be rich. But that's because it's true!

Tower 28

On paper, Amy Liu appears to be one of the most intimidating women in the beauty business. Not only did she launch her beauty marketing career at legendary Smashbox Cosmetics, she went on to lead luxury, high-end brands like Kate Somerville and Josie Maran — just to name a few.

But sitting down to meet Liu for the first time in an underground New York bar over a year ago felt like meeting a friend I'd known since childhood. As she walked into the bar in a chic red dress, it was impossible not to feel her immediate warm presence. When she talks about her history as an entrepreneur (and truly, at heart, she always was one), you don't get the sense that she's selling you anything, though with her impeccable taste, I'd use anything that had her glowing review attached to it.

Sixth grade was the year that you were allowed to participate in a school sport. This was what my friends and I had all been waiting for since we started middle school. I had already made the cheer team with my friends, but I had to wait to start that in the winter since we cheered for basketball. I really wanted to have some sort of activity in the fall, but I did not know what to do. Somehow, I decided to run cross country. Not really sure how I decided on a sport where it was quite literally just running. A few of my friends were doing it as well, so I knew it was going to be fun.

Working Out Every Day During Quarantine Helps Me Feel A Sense Of Control

Physical activity helps my mental health in a world that feels uncertain.

Before the pandemic, I exercised a handful of times a week at best. In quarantine, I've been exercising every single day. I don't want this article to be another spiel about how exercise "changed my life," and all the other cliches that health gurus use to convince others to work out more. Rather, I want to reveal that exercise is a tool that works for me because it boosts my mental health when I feel like the world is spiraling out of control.

To say that 2020 has been a bit of a roller coaster is an extreme understatement. Who knew that this decade was going to start off like THIS!? Not me, not you, and not that sweet old lady who lives down the street. One thing is certain though — while the world may be a mess right now, you can still fuel your body with food that keeps you happy and healthy. Thankfully, as we are all spending more time inside, you can get healthy snacks delivered straight to your front door! Amazon has never been more convenient (and tasty).
