Apparently, I really lucked out, because I hit every item on the expectations list.
I also hit a few items on the reality list such as feeling lonely, waking up early, tiredness, college applications, keeping it all bottled up, and spending too much time on the internet.
The good outweighed the bad.
I wouldn't trade my high school experience for the world.
I feel bad for people that didn't have a good high school experience.
