Why do you think high school is talked about so often?
I think it has a lot to do with business. When you were young, stuff was cheap for you so you weren't really much of a money spender but during teenagehood you were still a child (so you'd be easily tricked) but with an adult's buying power.
I wasn't. You were spoiled hon.
I can't remember discussing high school in the past 20 years, I'm 40
High school has a great impact on most people, and I'm not talking about the academic part of it.
For years, no one at work or in life ever discussed high school. Then my job became one.
