Most say its hell but that word doesn't even begin to describe it.
Parents "How was High School?"
Kid "It starts with a h and ends with L."

A place where teens have so much pressure that they are pushed so far to the point where they just want to kill themselves.

You will actually have to study for Honors/Pre-AP/AP classes. You will most likely forget about your friends, family and love life, and will exist for the sole purpose of reaching a 4.5 GPA and studying for the impending SATs. You may experience unexplainable weight loss, paleness, and passing out randomly in class. The only free time you have will be spent crying and listening to sad music while reviewing notes for the 90th time to get a 78 on your AP chemistry test. Average sleep hours=2.5 per school night, 5=per week day.

High school kids stay awake by mixing energy drinks, coffee, cigarettes, and vitamin C supplements in a blender, then shutting their eyes and drinking it. They tend to drink about 5 a day.

Students are taught to "think for themselves" AKA conform to the people (usually idiots) around them . Most conform. Some don't and end up living poor because society rejects them. A few clever ones keep up their grades and bullshit through high school while at the same time harboring their individuality inside. These will probably survive/enjoy life and not end up

a. poor

b. dead

c. hating their stupid kids, spouse, job, and life.

Teachers don't give a fuck about anyone and usually spend their time playing computer games and getting pissy when you need to ask them a question. Gym teachers are fat, and whip you like dominatrixes to run the damn mile.

Good luck in high school...see you on the other side...
Me: I'm a sophomore in high school as of August 2011. Help me.
Fellow Goth kid: I feel you.

Dude: I though this was gym, not a BDSM crash course!

Known as the "4 best years of your life", but is usually the worst years of your life. High school is often full of endless work, assholes, and extreme lack of sleep.
Dude I fucking hate high school. Why do my teachers always have to give me 5 tests a day at the end of a marking period?

Research suggests that the average amount of sleep high school students get per night is 5.451139 hours. Also, when surveyed, 73% of high school students confess to drinking large amounts of caffeinated drinks on a daily basis.

A place that strips you of all confidence and happiness, and if you complain to any adult about it, the tell you to grow up.
Kid: Mom, high school really makes me fell depressed.

Mom: You kids don't know what depressed is. Just wait til you get to the real world.

That place where you spend four years hoping that you get by. Where about 90% of everything you hear from anyone (including teachers) is the most bogus misinformed crap. Either you go to parties, get drunk and have lots of sex or you don't.

You could be a nerd, an emo punk, a druggo, a preppy cool kid, a gossip monger or that guy everyone loves and hates at the same time. Your ultimate aim is to get into Princeton or Harvard or Cornell or whatever (dream on).

Listen to good music, take lots of power naps, try to get out of town as much as possible, watch Seinfeld and take advantage of life's small offerings and you'll be A-OK.

Also, study for 25 hours a day and do all your fucking homework if you don't wanna be a miserable faliure.
Dad: ah, I remember my senior year of high school in 1988. I had a girlfriend and always snuck out at night. Then I made it into Yale.

Son: sounds lit, dad. I'm glad you had so much fun.
