  1. Trust me, in ten years none of y’all will even care about your high school life, you’ll have a handful of stories and that’ll be it. Or maybe you’ll be one of those people who peaked in the 12th grade.

  2. This more about student athletes than the average student.
    Not sure if their missing out. I mean at the end of the year, your probably never going to see many of your classmates again or talk to them. Plus whatever your dating likely going to dump you.

  3. graduated college in 2020. felt like it didn't matter, was rushed off campus and got emailed my diploma. never even got grad pics- feels weird to work so long and have it mean so little.

    heart goes out to anyone young who lost a major milestone to the pandemic- we will be stronger for it I hope.

  4. no one expected to miss memories people spend your life telling you you'll have- and people forget the pain long before you can even fully contimplate it

  5. I just graduated from college may 15th with a bachelor of science in psychology. And I plan to apply to medical school next may. When I tell you my last year in college was one of the hardest year for me mentally. Having to do classes online is difficult and then to be isolated worrying about life and death genuinely traumatized to me. And know having graduated I'm stressing to find a job post covid in the healthcare field while I apply to medical school. Covid in my opinion just exposed how terrible my mental health really was.

  6. Graduated 2020, felt most of the things the 2021 people felt but less so. Didn’t have a prom but at least I had some good memories during the year before. Best of wishes to all.

  7. They should just keep it as online schools, there’s already school shootings happening already. I got my kid out of school to get a ged and she graduated at 16 years old. Now she is going to college already. Take advantage of the many doors that are opening from the virus and stop wanting things to “go back to normal” because it never will be the same

  8. I lost my freshman year and that was painful.
    I’m sorry to all the seniors who’s year was ruined.
    Senior year is so important it’s the last year to make memories and find colleges to apply to.
    I also struggled and now have to take 9th grade and 10th classses together.

  9. I lost my senior year too during Spring 2020. Worked my butt off to make it as one of the top kids in my grade, and at the end of it all a virtual graduation wasn’t enough for me. A lack of a prom was heartbreaking. My whole grade has been dreaming of senior year since middle school and when things were starting to get exciting everything turned to dust. It messes with you a little bit, working for something so hard just to lose your reward over an event you didn’t cause.

  10. covid didn't cause this, cowardice and stupidity did, Sweden was open since the start, no mask no lockdowns and they are fine

    keeping wearing that stupid masks and complain about lockdowns, that will work for sure

  11. I missed the whole thing end of junior year and senior year. I kinda got screwed but it isn't even seniors, nearly all kids k-12 are going to be seriously negatively impacted by COVID.

  12. DO YOU PEOPLE UNDERSTAND THAT WE WERE PROMISED AN AWESOME SENIOR YEAR FROM A YOUNG AGE?? WE WORKED OUR ASSES OFF FOR 13 YEARS TO EARN OUR DIPLOMAS, AND WAITED JUST AS LONG TO WALK THE STAGE! WE GET THAT PEOPLE ARE DYING AND THAT’S A BIGGER DEAL, BUT CAN YOU JUST LET US BE SAD?!

  13. lost my class 12 to covid in India, feels like a disaster to me, i had planned many many things for this time, made no memories or anything, screwed up exams due to less learning and what not, had many suicidal thoughts, but alright now

  14. I was told all my life how cool was high school and finally when I get there, and my life is going better than shitty mid school, it all blows out. It's selfish complaining about this because covid caused lots of worse things, but still, it's sad how we're losing a decent and privileged youth.
