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.

 1  #SorryNotSorry

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.

First crush, first slumber party, first barkada—name it, you probably have done it will all of your BFFs.

 3  The struggle is real.

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.

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.

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.

"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.

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.

BRB, in a meeting with the whole class about how we should answer our latest problem set.

 9  You know it.

And let all your ~*feelings*~ come rushing in.

 10  Until you graduate from high school and go to different universities, that is.

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.
