I always dreaded the start of school. I used to have nightmares starting mid-June about having to get up at 6 AM and wait for the school bus. Truth be told, I STILL have nightmares where they discover I missed out on a particular class and make me come back. It always ends with me screaming, "NO! NO! I have my college degree! See? Here it is! I don't want to go back!" And then I wake up to the comfort of being an adult. Not dreading tests I didn't study for. Not fretting about armpit sweat staining my prom dress. And certainly not wondering how I can eat lunch without anyone noticing that I actually ate anything. The comforting thing is, no matter what you went through in high school, someone out there knows how you feel. Even though you may have felt totally alone at the time, you can look back later and laugh and laugh at how silly it all was.
Anyway, today I discovered the completely hilarious Yearbookyourself.com. Want to see how I spent my day? Do you? Okay.
