There always seem to be a plethora of negative “why high school sucked for me” or “I hate my job” threads so I decided to interject something positive:
Do you have a time in your life that was particularly awesome for whatever reason?
I can think of several:
Summer camp - Around sixth grade my parents shipped my brother and I off to summer camp for a month. I thought it would suck but it actually ended up being really cool. It was a hell of a lot better than our usual summers of watching tv and riding bikes around the neighborhood bored out of our minds.
1995-1996 - Senior year (and a half) in college and the summer-winter after. Frat parties every weekend. Rented a shore house and then a ski house with some of my fraternity brothers and their friends from their new jobs. Hung out with high school friends when I wasn’t at the shore. Basically just spending my days delaying being an adult until I could find a job.
Spring/Summer of 2001 - Had just quit my job to finish up business school in Boston. Great job lined up at the end of the summer in New York City. Fat signing bonus check in hand. Most people said I should have taken a vacation and gone traveling? Vacation from what? Waking up at noon after drinking with my friends all night to go kayaking down the Charles? Driving to Newport to spend the day hanging on the beach while the rest of the world is at work? Basically just taking a couple months off from being an adult.
