I wonder what high school taught me but what do you think it will teach you?

The truth is, college can be a pretty cool experience but what it's also a great opportunity to look back at the time and spent in high school, the memories you made there, the diploma you earned and more. What you will find is that high school was a blast, it was a time full of new excitements, plenty of adventure and learning that further enriched your life.

Off the top of my head I could think about making new friends, how to deal with the endless onslaught of childish rumors, how to plan ahead for the future, how much relationships matter, and how to keep your integrity.

I put together a list of the best 5 things high school teaches you, some funny and some serious, that caught my attention.

# 1 Thing High School Teaches Me!

How to send a text message without looking at my phone. So this is a silly one but I had to add it. I mean I remember, all joking aside, trying to sneak a text message in class without looking down at my phone. If I did the teacher would catch us. It's amazing to think I was able to pull it off.

# 2 Thing High School Teaches Me!

Friends come and go but memories last a lifetime. I can recall how many "good friends" I had in high school... people I thought would be in my life forever. As time goes on and I matured, those people became less and less a part of my life. That is OK because they represented a time of my life that has come and gone but the memories we had will last a lifetime.

# 3 Thing High School Teaches Me!

It's not worth pretending to be somebody you aren't. A lot of times in high school, we will try to "fit in" by being somebody we aren't just to impress others. As you grow up, your realize how much this is not worth it. Be yourself and be produce of how you are even if you need to live out that stage in high school.

# 4 Thing High School Teaches Me!

The value of being on time. I remember getting hounded by teachers for being tardy to class. Not really caring then, I realize in the real world how much your punctuality matters and how a lack thereof can hurt you big time.

# 5 Thing High School Teaches Me!

You have to respect authority. I mean how often did we want to argue with our teachers, make a scene, fight back? In the real world we have managers and bosses and we shut up and get in line and listen up if we want to pay our bills and keep a roof over our heads. It's amazing how much we argued it but how much the lesson of obeying authority was important to our future successes.

Do you agree with our list? Love it? Hate it? I'd love to get your opinion on things that high school teaches you.
