I'm reading this in 2014, but I have to say, this article was just sad. I don't understand how after graduating college years later you could still be so butthurt about your high school days? I didn't really party in high school either. There was the occasional beer or two in the back of a minivan or a sneaky glug of cooking wine from a friend's pantry, but my friends and I were certainly of the crowd, like yours, that mostly heard about the awesome parties only after they occurred. What I don't get though, is that we all got to make up for it in college. We had our fun, got over it, matured and are on our way to pursuing the happy adult lives of our dreams. Sounds like you still need to let loose.
