During the boring calculus classes we would pass folded notes on all the latest gossip news in school. Everyone was getting pranked, including me and we would do it beyond the school walls also.
We would be giggling through all boring classes, without a care of what was being taught. We were also very cunning when it came to pranking our fellow students. In one instance, a classmate of ours decided to prank our substitute teacher. Sporting events were the highlights of the high school life.
Young adults learn at this stage that not everything goes as they expect them to. Young men master the courage of approaching girls they like, while girls get firsthand experience of having boyfriends. They get to experience how sweet love is and how good it is to have someone, who thinks you are special and wants to be with you.
Unfortunately, it is also the time when people experience their first breakups and it is devastating.
It is a fun period in life, because teenagers have no sense of responsibility apart from studying. They start forming groups with other like-minded individuals.
Geeks form their reading clubs, musicians form bands, athletes build teams, actors hone their crafts in theater clubs, journalists are busy running the school magazine etc.
Teenagers rarely talk about their feelings to anyone else, except their close friends.
So, most of them have to soak up all the pain of their heartbreaks.
Since we knew each other very well, the parties were not chaotic.
The only challenge we had was the host’s parents showing up before the party was over.
