Maybe it's that I'm getting cranky in my old age. I don't know. But I'd like to know who started the lie that I have now read on so many of my college comp papers, "People say that your senior year is supposed to be the best time of your life."
Three words: "Crock of shit."
Don't get me wrong. I had a great time in high school. But I was never foolish enough to think that it was the peak of my life and that everything would be down hill from there.
I just want to know where this myth originated. Or maybe students don't even believe it; they just blather on about it because it's what they have heard themselves for so long.
Every passing year is the best time of my life. Am I in the minority?
