Day 18 — I would agree or disagree that high school is/was the time of my life… Because…
Oh, I know some people out there loved their highschool years. Buddying romances, glances thrown over the shoulder, notes passed in class and many more. Unfortunately, I am not one of those people. I hated my highschool years with a vengeance!
My parents sent me to a rich kids school and not being a rich kid myself I found myself easily as the new bully target. Being a bit overweight, I could not fit in with the gorgeous ladies, being smart and always at the top of the class got me the “teacher’s pet nickname” and not having the latest brands on display put me quickly into the poor bunch area. I am by no means poor. My family is your average middle class family with bills to pay but also with a house next to the apartment and a few more investments in jewlery than I can count.
So, I counted my days until I could graduate and then the minutes and then the seconds. It was a major disapointment, so big that when I hit college I felt like I had reached heaven! I could talk again to people, make friends easily and generally get along without being looked down.
This year in June is the highschool reunion and I can say happily that I’m not going. I’ve had enough of those people for four years and there’s no point in spending another microsecond in their company.
