I was pretty young the last time I watched either of them, so re-viewing the "high school experience" a long (long) time after I've left high school is kinda interesting to me. I relate a little too much to both shows. In my own ways I was an Angela Chase, a freak, a geek, and million other things.
|The 'scrunched' phase|
A lot of people say that the high school years are the best years of your life. I remember thinking "God, I really hope not". My dad once told me that anyone who believed that was an idiot (I'm paraphrasing, of course). I may be biased, but my dad is always right. Always.
|Oh, Jordan Catalano.|
I wouldn't go back to my high school years for any amount of money. The drama, the cliques, the rumours - the sick feeling when people are talking about you, but you haven't even done anything worth talking about. The belief that I would never be as pretty as the other girls, and that my whole life would always be this strange and awkward.
|Geeks wanna be freaks sometimes|
At 28, I'm proud to be a freak, a geek, and finally an independent chick.
But, hey - even if I ever did have to go back to High School Hell, at least my uniform kilt still fits. I wonder if Jordan Catalano likes kilts....
