And you all looked like you had anime eyes — because what's more attractive than having eyes that take up half your face?

8. You brought your metal lunch box to school and put it in the steamer until lunchtime.

And that sensation of steam hitting you in the face is something you'll never forget. So many lunches. So pungent (not always in a good way).

21. You had a pearl milk tea pretty much glued to your hand.
