About This Quiz

There are some people who would have you believe that your school days are the best days of your life. They tend to say this utterly strange remark to kids who are not having a great time at school, and while it is not actually intended as a way to dishearten them by informing them that even this miserable period is as good as it gets, that is often the effect it has.

For those of us who weren't attractive, cool and popular - that is, basically everyone - and even for many who were those things but nurtured unseen hurts underneath - most of the rest - our school days are, happily, far from our best days. Getting older, we later learn, is absolutely awesome! You get to choose where you live and what work you do, and you can very often simply walk away from cliques and bullies. You can finally embrace that other piece of advice that is so unhelpful to kids, "Who cares what people think?" - because those people have no power to mess up your life any more.

Still, it is amusing to figure out from our adult perspective how we might handle the horrors of high school if we had to go through them again. Let's see where you would land using this crafty game of, "Would you rather?"
