    6. Or when your best friend suddenly got a new best friend and ditched you.

    7. Your school motto was probably in Latin.

    8. And it translated to something about working hard or striving high because, well, ~females need to work twice as hard~.

    13. People always asked you if going to an all-girls school turned you into a lesbian.

    14. The teachers tried their best to make you feel empowered, especially in the final years of high school, as you were females about to enter the ~real world~.

    15. Meanwhile you would get in trouble for wearing your uniform in a way that would “attract male attention”. Not so empowering all of a sudden, eh?

    16. You had absolutely no problem hitching up your skirt to pull up your tights in public.

    17. Same goes for adjusting your bra strap.

    18. You’ll still do it as a full-functioning adult, when no one is looking.

    19. Consoling a crying girl in the bathroom is something you did on the regular.

    28. And as soon as someone got a boyfriend, it was the biggest deal ever.

    29. Everyone in the whole grade knew all the details about said relationship.
