A prison for teenagers who didn't do anything wrong, where we take even worse bullshit from the system than actual convicts. You spend your time trying to stay awake in class, trying to impress people you despise deep down, trying to make time for homework and sports, and chasing that hot girl you've wanted to fuck since 8th grade. Most people get the first 3 okay, but the fourth one is where it starts to fall apart. First, you'll try the "nice guy
" approach, and when that gets rejected, you'll try the "popular prep
" approach, and when she ignores you again, you'll go for that "asshole jock
" approach. If you manage to sink this low, then maybe her shallow, bitchy mind will finally notice you. Even if you do have a girlfriend or a boyfriend, everything you do spreads around like wildfire, and if you manage to say 1 thing wrong, you lose your girlfriend, and most likely, all the friends you ditched to make your shallow relationship work. Then, there are your "friends". Everyone acts nice to your face, but the second you turn your back, they start talking shit about you. And you only know this because that's exactly what you do to them. To put it short, everyone in high school is an insecure, shallow kiss-ass conformist. Yes, even the goths and emos are conformists. If they weren't, they wouldn't be stereotypes. High school fucks you up like nothing else can.
