"enjoy it while it lasts, high school will be the best time of your life" is code for "i'm straight, neurotypical and extremely boring"
@kew I think its also a way some people justify their lack of happiness and trying.
I always hated that whole "high school was the BEST" crap. High school was god-awful.
Plus, what a hellish defeatist mindset that you have to pick a time in your life and say "it will never get better than that." How do you keep going on thinking that things can never get better. ugh.
@gedvondur it's so depressing
@kew sometimes I just have a moment where I think about how terrible it must be to peak before 18. How boring. How little meaning it must give to one's life.
@platypus it's nothing short of pitiful ! how can the best time of your life be the period in which you had only a fraction of the agency and freedom you acquire in adulthood
@kew HS wasn't even the best time of my life in HS
@kew High school was literally my lowest point and when I was in the middle of it I was TERRIFIED that this was going to be true =P
@witchfynder_finder yup i was exactly the same
A resting space for the wayward soul.
