High school was such a vibe.
HBO Max’s Genera+ion may highlight a different wave of high school kids, but a lot of the same aspects of your own high school experience are in-your-face obvious.
Those four years definitely recall a mix of “glad I’m the hell out of here” and “take me back to those times I’ll never be able to recreate” emotions.
These 19 things that happened in the show are so high school, it’s like skipping down Memory Lane:
When that one person dressed fabulously all day, every day.
When you kissed someone unexpectedly, but hey, the scenery called for it.
When you had to console someone at a party.
When you told someone how you felt about them and totally got rejected.
When picking school clubs was somewhat political.
When you and your classmates made up random games and songs during an overnight trip.
Either really getting along with or totally not getting along with with a sibling that was also in high school with you.
When you made iconic memories doing the simplest things with dope people during the weekend.
When you asked your friend for a ride because they had their driver’s license and you didn’t.
When you were nabbed by the dress code police because they just couldn’t let you be great.
Dealing with that one very involved teacher that’s sweet, but a double dose of too much.
When you had to help a friend with an emergency in a public bathroom.
When you found something to be totally gross, but invited others to witness it so they could feel grossed out, too.
When you said something you probably shouldn’t have said in front of a lot of people.
When you sent the wrong message to someone and drowned in embarassment.
When you had a friend talk to your crush on your behalf.
When you got stuck in a classroom for eternity during a drill.
When you sat next to your crush on the bus during a class trip.
And finally, when you overheard your parents say something you really didn’t want to hear.
