That is why it is necessary for you to mess around every now and then. A little.
Getting a detention is not the end of the world. If people look at you like one of those perfect students, you are not going to have many friends. In fact, you’ll probably get made fun of for being a dork. It is fine if you put effort into your classes and everything, but you really need to mess around once in awhile.
Start a food fight. Mess with the freshman. Raise your hand and say something stupid in class (limit this to once per month). Take a dump in the urinal. No. I’m just kidding. Don’t do that. Book check a friend (or an enemy).
Just find something to do that you know won’t result in a big punishment, but it will be fun to do. In fact, you’ll probably get away with it if you are smart. No one really tells on each other in high school.
Screwing around a bit makes high school more fun, and people will like you more. Don’t be the class clown, but be a fun person to be around. No one wants to be friends with the kid that studies 24/7. So don’t be that kid.
The 5 Best High School Movies
Many high school movies have been made, but I personally think that these are the 5 best high school movies. Check them out if you haven’t.
5) Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
This one talks about a kid in high school named Ferris who ditches a day from school and hangs out with his girlfriend and best friend. They go to the museum, a baseball game, and even start a campaign to raise money for Ferris. This is an instant classic without a doubt.
4) The Breakfast Club
Five high school students from completely different social groups sit around in detention one day and learn a heck of a lot about each other. It talks about why they landed in detention and whether or not they can truly be friends. A must see.
This one is a little more recent but it is still extremely good. It deals with more recent high school and all boils down to one big party that night where this guy is trying to get with this girl. It’s pretty good because it is somewhat like real high school today, whereas the movies that are 10+ years old are a bit out of date.
2) Fast Times at Ridgemont High
This movie is about high school in the 80’s. It’s a pretty accurate representation of what things were like, and it’s also really, really funny. A good storyline and some sex make this movie my #2.
1) Dazed and Confused
It’s the last day of school in 1975. I really don’t know what to say about this movie except ‘I wish this is what high school was really like’. Check this movie out and tell me whether or not this is the greatest high school movie ever. You can’t deny it. This movie is great.
