Cliched depictions of high school suck.

As a second semester senior in high school on the cusp of graduating, I have done a lot of reflecting on my four years spent in the institution.  Thoughts composed of regrets, funny moments, internal eye-rolls at how lame I was as a freshmen (and sophomore and junior), some truly happy memories interspersed here and there.  And then that one question I can't get out of my head.  Was my high school experience abnormal?

I came to high school with certain expectations that I got from sources such as Disney Channel and Gossip Girl (and was thoroughly let down).  I present to you:



Reasons why the high school experience has disappointed me.

7.  Apparently, you actually have to do work in high school.  Have you ever seen Serena Van Der Woodsen or Blair Waldorf or Hannah Montana study or do any homework whatsoever?  I didn't think so.  



6.  I thought this was supposed to happen at least a few times.  No?

5.  High schools isn't like East High where you can break out in song in the middle of the hallway.  The one time someone actually did, all prom-posals were banned for the year (and I almost got trampled).





4.  What school dances are supposed to look like:

What they actually look like:

3.  Being the shy nerdy girl doesn't get you anywhere even if Taylor Swift wants us to believe otherwise.






2.  Where are all the Bill's (from Perks of Being A Wallflower)?  The Professor Lupins?  The Ms. Norbury's and the Mr. Schusters?  Aren't high school teachers supposed to be inspiring mentors, guiding us through adolescence and helping us to discover who we want to be?  All of mine look like they just want to go home any second.  




and the final reason why high school was a disappointment?

1.  This never happened.

So yeah... this was a  really pointless post.  But what I think I am trying to say is that high school sucked and I am so happy that I am only a few months from leaving this place forever.  [rant over]

  6. Eye to computer screen control is also available. I even find myself backing
    away from recommending other resources which,
    in the past, I would have shared willingly.
    Wherever you click you are instantly overwhelmed with special offers: book this, buy that, fly
    with us, hop on this, reserve that. So, in conclusion, removing the headphones from your MP3 player is
    not bad, provided you don't yank too hard on the cord. Cons. Originally established as a sanctuary for the Nilgiri Tahr, the 'The Eravikulam National Park' has now turned into a highly popular tourist spot. Of course, many people looking to boost their bone health choose to supplement their diets. In an effort to counter the lack of support from Microsoft, an SVG plug-in for Internet Explorer was developed and supported by Adobe. Dependency enslaves you, giving others the ultimate power over how you perceive and feel about yourself. I died numerous times because of the stupid reload system.

  9. This act is recognized as "farming", whereby you create a character and promote
    it. The popularity of online multiplayer
    seems to have overshadowed the experience of playing with someone who is sitting next to you.

    I'm not against such games, but it never hurts to have alternatives in case one doesn't want
    their child playing those kinds of games or maybe
    just would rather their kid be exposed to other types
    of gaming than the simple "shoot, run, shoot" types of games that are
    so popular.

  12. I tend not to write a lot of remarks, but after looking at a bunch of remarks on this page "Cliched depictions of high school suck.".
    I actually do have a few questions for you if you tend
    not to mind. Is it simply me or do some of the remarks appear like they are left by brain dead folks?
    :-P And, if you are posting at additional sites, I would like to follow you.
    Could you list of the complete urls of your social community sites like your twitter feed,
