I've gotten this before from many other people. High school
seems to be the metaphorical cornerstone of most people's lives. I, on the other hand, did not go to high school
. What does this mean for my cultural and social consciousness
? That I lack a near-ubiquitous social substrate
? Sometimes it would indeed seem so.
At the same time, sometimes I'm glad I missed the banality and the other negative aspects of high school, but lacking experiential knowledge of the subject, I cannot truly say whether I'd rather have been raised differently.
