Did you? Do you think you were right or were you highly mistaken? I ask because I feel I should have enrolled in community college or some pre-university/foundation course when I was sixteen. Maybe a bit earlier but that's around the age where that *could* have been possible. I'm not going to cry in a corner of my room about this; nothing I can do about it any more. I am, however, curious as to what reasons could have led you to think of high school as such. My experience with high school was not a very good one. I was very bored and wanted to meet a more diverse set of people, which none of the high schools I went to allowed for. The more interesting people I met were through internet forums. So, on the social front, there was nothing keeping me there and as far as academics went, there really was nothing that caught my interest. Everything was very boring and I've been waiting to go to uni for a few years now... For me, the only positive of high school was that it taught me how to coexist with other people. People ranging from the "gossip kind*" to the "jocks" and "geeks". *These were the worst. I felt like I was in a Desperate Housewives or Gossip Girl episode. It was that bad. None of these people (mostly girls) seemed to like each other very well either.
