in high school you learn to jump through hoops. You don't really learn much beyond what is need to function in society. nothing more.

High school is more about society than anything else. They reject you every chance they get and expect you to come back for more. I was the big captain of the football team but since I didn't dress in abercrombie and shit I got shit on by the popular kids. Everyone knew me as the biggest mother fucker in school and not to mess with me but to also not be friends with me as well. Life is a bitch sometimes but that is how it happens.
Organized chaos is a weird and disruptive thing

I hated high school. I really didn't understand what was with the constant induction of conformity, mass hypnosis, and us-vs-them mentality. (Pep rallies being the biggest examples of all three).

in reply to antigonereborn in message #1263:
Aww, man! I LOVED high school! There was virtually no responsibility. Sure I had to work to make my money, but I had free room, board, and food, so all the money went into savings or into those things that I whimsically desired.

I realise that my highschool experience was way different from most people's, though. In middle school, I made some excellent friends, and we all shared ideals and ideas. We all valued the same things in life, so we were pretty tight knit - the kind of friends that have since come and gone, but never felt distant (in 15 years we could get together and feel like no time has passed).

At first, we sort of outcast ourselves - purposefully mocking and avoiding the sought-after, affluent, and frequently more attractive popular kids. Then, we decided that disliking people for anything other than their personalities or actions was lame, and that group distinction was even more lame. We all thought we were funny and awesome as shit. If nobody else did, we didn't care. If out of a group of every student in the school you could make one or two of your buddies laugh, it was worth it. We used to make fun of each other so terribly that people who met us for the first time couldn't understand how we culd be friends.

What made our little group evolve into what it was by graduation is that we actively sought out new and interesting people, the best of wich were usually sitting alone in the lunchroom. I mean, if you don't get on with most high school students, it's hardly a bad sign. Most high school students are dumb.

Anyway, by the time we left, we could hang out with most of the people in the school, and we could talk to everyone. The attitude (for the most part) was absolutely fantastic - friendly, helpful, united, etc... It was the people who thought they were better than everyone else who were outcast, because they were pricks.

As I understand it, very different from most people's high school experiences. I think it was just because of the unique values that we all posessed. Within our little circle of long-time friends, the coolest thing to do was to suprise everyone by doing something totally outrageous and hillarious - ANYTHING went if it could get a good laugh. the only people that we were ever mean to was eachother, and then, only when it was really funny. Nobody ever had sore feelings, because we could laugh just as hard at ourselves as we could at each other.

Ahhh... Memories... Damn, high school was fun.
WTF?

Yeah, I moved around a lot. It's hard to make friends when you're not even there long enough to wash the newbie status. Mind you, I had a few, and my senior year was great because I fell in with the "least, the lost, and the leftover" but I'm much happier in college where everyone has the newbie status.

I also like the fact that the professors don't give a fuck if you show up their class or not.

yeah i feel the same way. People generally left me alone in high school, i had my friends, i had my girlfriends, i had more money than i knew what to do with. High school was great and i never even knew it. College life just leaves me poor, stressed, and with a whole lot less fun.

i really liked high school. i was a loser, so it really made people uncomfortable that i was so confident about it. my senior year, all the underclassmen liked me because i didn't treat them like pieces of shit. i was also involved in everything (sports, music, theatre, etc.). i had a job, but no financial responsibility...god my life has progressed steadily down the shitter since then.


completely off the subject of anything being(or more often, not) discussed, My university is performing Antigone (the Brecht adaptation) this april. I am playing Kreon. just read the name and reminded myself how much fucking memorizing i have to do....sigh.

yeah, it's a challenging role (my director said "think dick cheney"...i laughed), but i think the process will be a lot of fun. i don't like brecht either, because you take a story that's already really wordy and, well, kinda boring, and then you have brecht who is really wordy and kinda boring...there you have it. it should be a decent show. i hope it goes well.

i'd hafta agree with th eprevious statements.

in several of my classes, i attempt at paying attention, but the useless banter of those who atend school for social contacts prevents me from that.

it pisses me off, and has gotten me into an altercation or two.

but, now i'm getting some of the teachers to not cowar and tell people to shut up.

i watched most of the class squirm a few days ago as homosexuality and cross-dressing was discussed. the people there were predominantly white, lds, and have yet to stretch thier legs beyond this state called "utah".

Law school: the other day, I posited a hypothetical in which a delusional mental patient, believing she is John Wilkes Booth, attacks her nurse, whom she believes to be Abraham Lincoln--and it was completely germane to the discussion. This is great!
