High school may not be easy, but it definitely is fun. Some even say that high school will be the best time of your life. It's like a sweet part of you because you're with an entire group of people who are also just starting to realize what life is all about and are a bit clueless about how to deal with certain situations just like you. So when the hashtag #SaHighSchool trended on Twitter earlier, we took a peek at your tweets and compiled a few that we totes think you can relate to. We even got a bit nostalgic while going through them, too.
#SaHighSchool I learned how to sleep in class and still pass.— Jhaemaica Cyrille (@strawco_jam) February 5, 2015
Stayed up late last night because you were busy finishing that research paper for History? No problem. We can sometimes take a few minutes to nap and ask our friends to wake us up once something important is happening—like a surprise quiz or a graded recitation.
2 It was like you got the go signal to try everything.
#SaHighSchool lahat ng first naranasan.— IG: thejanmark (@JanmarkMillana) February 5, 2015
First crush, first slumber party, first barkada—name it, you probably have done it will all of your BFFs.
3 The struggle is real.
Ubos Papel Mo Kakahingi ng mga kaklase mo kapag may quiz. #SaHighSchool— Mkaye ~ (@MaureneKaye) February 5, 2015
Bring an entire pad of paper to school and you know you're in trouble.
4 And your teachers knew how to make you struggle.
#SaHighSchool Teacher: Get 1/4 Sheet of paper Student: wait lg ma'am Teacher: Ok number 1 Student: wait laaaannggggg :3 hahaXD— Dennis Salo ヅ (@DJDenz_salo) February 5, 2015
This is why you have to make sure you cut out 1/2 (lengthwise and crosswise) and 1/4 sheets of paper the night before. Or if you were the type, you'd just buy all the sizes from your friendly neighborhood bookstore. No. Big. Deal.
5 You had to stay late in school to practice for Buwan ng Wika or Nutrition Month.
#SaHighSchool pabonggahan ng section presentation— KC Gomez (@SilverSpirit_o9) February 5, 2015
But you don't mind, since you get to stay with your friends and classmates longer than usual—never mind that you actually see each other five days a week—and you also get the chance to be creative with them just to beat other sections and year levels.
6 Because in college, you have to come in or you'll miss the lesson or worse, a 50-point long quiz.
#SaHighSchool okay lang umabsent kapag may sakit.— J.A.M. (@ThickZone) February 5, 2015
"Mom, please sign my excuse letter. I can't get out of bed. I feel sick. *cough, cough*"
7 You have to nail your part in your Florante at Laura or Noli Me Tangere play in Filipino class.
#SaHighSchool Puro groupings. Puro practice. Hayst! 😑— LouGaw ™ツ (@LouMariam) February 5, 2015
You even went as far as dressing the part. And if you were in an all-girls high school, you may have played the guy part at least once. Never mind that you had long hair.
8 Physics and Calculus were your fave subjects to practice teamwork.
#SaHighSchool Sagot ng isa sagot na ng Lahat— ClingyyBoyfriend (@IamKeiDei) February 5, 2015
BRB, in a meeting with the whole class about how we should answer our latest problem set.
9 You know it.
#SaHighSchool Dito Magkakaroon ng First Love At First Heartbreak.— Mkaye ~ (@MaureneKaye) February 5, 2015
And let all your ~*feelings*~ come rushing in.
10 Until you graduate from high school and go to different universities, that is.
#SaHighSchool akala mo may forever.— тιмвeяĻĄŅĘ (@Timberlane21) February 5, 2015
You'll eventually say goodbye to the friends and people you've know for four years. It's like going through a breakup, but not really. You know you'll see them soon, but nothing beats being with them five days a week. It won't be the same, but you'll be glad you'll have some place and a phase in your life you can come home to when the need arises.
