For a lot of us, high school was the worst. A lot of it depends on the school you went to and the kids you grew up around, but I’d imagine that even if you got along with everyone, there was still a lot to worry about.
A packed schedule, dealing with your own ever-shifting hormones, the amped-up demands and increasingly difficult subject matter you had to constantly master and on top of all that: administrative rules, rules, and rules. Oh, and college applications and all the nonsense that goes along with that fun process.
It’s enough to freak out over.
But there is a silver lining: it ends. You get to be done with it all but before you do and move on to the next phase of your life where you realize all of the BS you used to stress out over in high school was ridiculous, you get to send yourself off with a yearbook quote.
Some people’s are more memorable than others and share universal truths.
Others use pop culture references to comment on the state of education in America.
Others tested the boundaries of their yearbook staff’s “standards” committee. But honestly, I see no lies here.
Some used it as a chance to hype themselves up one last time.
Others paid homage to the most neurotic member of the Friends cast.
Some students opted for the refined and classy route, selecting quotes from the more influential intellectual leaders of our time. Like Gucci Mane.
It’s also never a bad idea to quote some Harry Potter.
This kid’s mom thought that he would be sappy and “deep” with his yearbook quote. But seriously, no one’s got time for that. It’s way better to go the funny route. In fact: 99% of the time, go the funny route.
Others tweeted at their sources of yearbook quote inspiration letting them know the impact they made on their educational careers.
Because Spongebob has gifted us with countless memes, it only make sense that someone would give props to our yellow, square buddy who lives under the sea.
Others paid homage to breakfast beverages that compliment a hot plate of eggs so very well.
Practical, real life advice seemed to be a trend for 2018.
But sometimes, random, out-of-nowhere quotes that make us giggle are all it takes.
As well as poking fun at certain cultural stereotypes.
And you can never really go wrong with The Office.
But then there are some yearbook quotes that are a bit more original and complex, so they require a tag team partner to execute properly.
Then there are some that could have a bunch of different meanings…
It is always great to see though when students have their priorities straight.
Get that cheddar, Ivana, and congratulations to all seniors who graduated in 2018. Remember: college is pretty much a scam!
