Since we seem to have meandered into the thicket of schooling this weekend on Gates of Vienna, I’ve posted over at The Neighborhood of God with this question: Are There Any Adults Who LIKED High School?
I’ve been asking this question informally for years, and have yet to find anyone who answered in the affirmative. Mostly people either shuddered or said “thank God I never have to do that again.”
The Baron was lucky, though. His high school years were spent in England, where (back then, at least) you could be your own little warty self and no one minded. He did have to put up with some friendly condescension for being a Yank, but otherwise he fit right in.
Was your experience wonderful or was it a nightmare? Were you bored out of your tree or content in the knowledge that those were the best years of your life? Or did you quit in disgust?
If you’ve a mind to, go over and comment on your experience.
