Ugh. For the 90 percent of us who didn't peak in high school, it was absolutely the worst and best parts of our lives. ...Mostly the worst. Freaks and Geeks proved high school never changes and life, well, it's still a lot like high school.

As a grown-up, you still get beat up. Just instead of jocks, you get beat up by life, bills and taxes. And don't think for even a second that this doesn't still happen in high school, too.

3. You're still lactose intolerant

4. You still make fashion mistakes

5. You're still awkward

It's just gone from trying to look cool in the classroom to trying to look cool during speed dating.

6. "Grown-ups" still bore you to death

You still realize the world sucks in high school. As an adult(ish), you recognize you were right... and it's never going to change.
