We miss different things than CPP.
Holy shit, I miss almost nothing. I miss some of the people, but I could always call them or something. I miss NOT being the smartest person in the room — generally I miss hanging out exclusively with really smart people. That’s about it. There were more things I enjoyed, but sure as hell not enough to go back.
I don’t miss the angst, depression, terrible food, boyfriends dumping me, looking for a boyfriend, not getting enough sex, worrying about Cell Bio, math problem sets, restricted freedom, rules, communal living (we went to a boarding school), coming down with mono, my parents having power over me, not being able to live with a cat, lack of privacy, moving all my stuff twice a year, classes that started at 7:30AM, etc. Criminy.
Lucky for me, high school was not the best time of my life. It was certainly the best time of my life UP UNTIL THEN! Particularly senior year, that was pretty sweet. Except that my life kept on getting better after that, too! I love getting older. Joking aside, being a grownup pretty much rocks.
#2 totally agrees with all of the above, except she kind of liked the math problem sets, and sometimes has to make solution sets for them these days (and, for the most part, she still hangs out with super smart people).
How does your life compare to high school? What’s better and what’s worse?
