List RulesMemories that are commonly associated with high school

List of reasons why I miss high school--prom, football, lockers, writing notes to friends and the school cafeteria. We take all of these special things for granted when we are in school and we don't realize that they are some of the best things about high school. After you graduate, a lot changes and friends drift apart and move all over the country.

High school is a time when you are closest with your childhood friends and you still get to act like a child, but have fun like an adult (sort of..) Even if high school was a hard time and wasn't as cool as a typical high school movie, odds are that there are some things that you miss about high school. Vote for the things that you miss and add any bit of high school nostalgia that you can think of.
