ain't it great that we all have incredibly similar memories of how the school system failed our particular neurotype in horrible, stressful, anxiety-inducing ways
like i always want to blame my high school experience on the pressure cooker that was my high school but... it really wouldn't have been better anywhere else would it
@velexiraptor it’s hard to believe, but some high schools really are better. Source: am a college student who enjoyed their time in high school
@velexiraptor in part it was that my class was extraordinarily nice. Some of my teachers said that we were the kindest class they’d had in thirty years of teaching. So it was really an amazing degree of luck (and privilege)
