It's not hard to move beyond high school. Just understand once you're out of there, life can truly begin. You can track down your dream job, take college courses to help you learn, or even travel the world. You are no longer bound by the imaginary walls of your classmates and peer pressure.


However, some people just can't move past it.

Reddit user, u/OlFashionedHandy, wanted to know what's a surefire way to recognize the peak of puberty when they asked:

What screams "I peaked in high school"?

I dated a guy with his high school mascot tattooed on his arm.

It was such a turnoff.

Alright, Alright, Alright

Partying with high schoolers when you're 30.

I can't imagine this.

I'm 32, and high schoolers seemed ridiculously young to me after about 23.

Just Leave, Man

Selling herb to teenagers and then trying to get them to stay and smoke with you.

We're Barely In College...

Sharing EVERY memory from Facebook talking about the "good ol days" and "wish we could go back" when it's only been a few years since graduation

Me, in a horrid realization, in the back of my 92 Camaro, while icing that knee I blew out at the championship game senior year, reading through the divorce papers.

Haven't Done A Single Thing Since Then

Still bragging about high school basketball games from 10 years ago.

Never Finding Life Outside Of The Game

I went to school with a girl whose parents graduated from our high school 20 years prior. All 4 members of their family got the school's logo tattooed. Her boyfriend still goes to the football games and reposts his game highlights on Instagram. We're all 21-22.

I'm from New Mexico and live in the largest city in the state. We've never had a good hs football team and the bf usually goes to pick up HS girls and brags to everyone about how he was the star football player. If someone from another team makes a really good play he'll make some kind of remark about how he could've done it better or he'll go into a detail about his JV football experience.

Never Getting Past Labels

Still bullying the "nerds" at your 10 year reunion.

Or worse, in real life. I briefly worked with a guy I went to high school with, and like ninety percent of our not work related conversations were him reminiscing about how much he'd bullied me in high school (and acting like it was all a big joke).

Never Letting Go

A guy who graduated from my high school back in 2003 was arrested a few years ago for his 2nd DUI.

He was wearing his Letterman jacket in his mugshot.

Most of the time, dress codes are there for a reason. Sure, there are the unfair instances of "no spaghetti straps at school" and "no jeans at the office". But at the same time, there are certain work environments that don't call for inappropriate wear. And when you go in for that first interview, you've got to leave a good impression.

Nothing gives you a shock to the system quite like moving away from home for the first time. Maybe you're one of many in a college dorm. Perhaps you're living with roommates somewhere. Or you might be enjoying the pleasure of having your own place for the first time.

On a recent visit to Toronto, Tom Felton—the actor behind Draco Malfoy from the Harry Potter franchise—shared a hilariously self-deprecating shot from his visit to a Harry Potter exhibit.

While there, Felton donned a Slytherin robe and posed next to a picture of his younger self as Malfoy, looking...well, a bit rough around the edges.

"We apologize for the inconvenience."

Even if it's minor, sometimes, that inconvenience can be the most annoying, awful, grating moment of your entire life.

Such as when you're sitting on the subway and you stop in the tunnel for over a minute with no cell service and you want to rip your own skin off with a serrated knife.

Nah...not today. Not. Today.

Ever had that thing happen where you know you simply cannot stay where you are at that moment in time? Where the world has changed and become so awkward and unsafe that you just gotta run away as soon as humanly possible?

We are still fighting the fight for young boys to be able to express themselves without fear of judgement from the outside world.

Unfortunately, young boys are still pretty aware they may become targets based on how they choose to express themselves.
