Highschool is a harsh time for most teenagers, but it can also be fun. If you’re rich. Or good looking. Or even if you’re just not weird. At least this is what teenage movies tought us about highschool. Some of them proved to be right, in our case at least.
We don’t like to brag, but we had a good time kicking some ass…at the drama club. Yeah, good old times. But how was it in your case? Did you learn anything from teenage movies that applied in real life?
1. People like you for whom you pretend to be
High school is all about appearance and being popular. If you can’t make everyone else like you for who you are, then you must create a persona. One that must ensure everyone how lucky they are to eat at your table.
2. Bad guys get more action
Good girls fall for bad guys, it’s a saying. Well, in highschool, every girl likes the guy that doesn’t follow the rules. It may be the leather jacket or the football outfit, but there’s pattern surely.
3. Good students are always bullied
Being part of the herd is one way to get through highschool without major trauma. If you fall from normal, then you’re going to have to pray for the break to be over soon.
4. Throw a party if you want to be popular
What’s the best way to get to popular-land? Well, throw a big party with some “special” juice, acquired of course by some older friends. Invite the whole school to witness your rise from the mortals.
5. Cool kids must have a cool car
And you’re over there, in a dark corner, playing with your Lego cars. But the thought that those spoiled kids will one day work for you keeps you happy.
6. Highschool athletes have problems with other kids
And by other kids we mean the ones that are in the art or chess club. It’s all about muscle vs. brain. And in highschool almost nobody cares if you can quote from Shakespeare.
7. Most important things for girls are fashion, gossip and shopping
Teenagers have 99 problems, and most of them are what to wear at school or who’s the school’s Easy A.
8. The hottest guy in school falls in love with one awkward girl
It all starts from a bet, or from just a game, but he falls in love with her personality right away. And she turns out to be one gorgeous lady hidden under some ugly glasses or something.
9. The principal is either a tyrant or a really nice guy
But always the bad one is in your school. You hear from friends about one that is super cool, but you think he’s a legend. Like a unicorn, but with the power to give you permission to run on the hallway.
10. There is at least one athlete that goes pro in every highschool
Athletes and grades get along in teenage movies like Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger. Not at all, to be more specific. Guess who’s the “Special” one?
