Prom is a formal event for high school students that takes place near the end of senior year… but it’s so much more than that. Prom is also a very important event in a young woman’s life. You might say it’s the most important thing she ever does (besides get married, obviously).
Here’s a true testament to the massive significance of prom: I know everything about it and I didn’t even go*. Prom’s influence is so far-reaching, so pervasive, so unquantifiable that I know pretty much all there is to know about it, thanks to pop culture. Here, I’ve helpfully narrowed down the 10 most important things about prom in one helpful Illustrated Guide. More

For college students around the country, heading home for Thanksgiving means the best of times and the worst of times. Sure, you’ll snatch a few days off from classes, at least one warm home cooked meal. At the same time, it goes by way too quickly, you’re probably going to have to avoid your high school boyfriend and your parents are sure to question you all about classes. More
This Thanksgiving, I’ll give thanks for food, friends, and family (not necessarily in that order), but for the first time in my life, I won’t be spending the holiday passing the cranberry sauce to my mom or watching my dad awkwardly carve the turkey. Instead, I’ll be spending it more than a thousand miles away in my adopted home of Brooklyn, and I couldn’t be happier.
The truth is, while I’ll miss celebrating the holiday with my family, I’m looking forward to avoiding certain things. And no, I’m not referring to the judgment cast by my grandmother for biting my nails or for not sitting up straight, nor am I referring to the always-hellish experience of holiday airline travel. (Last year I was assigned a seat that had no cushion. Just a raw, curved piece of plastic. Good times.) No, I’m referring to the even more harrowing experience of running into people I knew in high school around my hometown when I least expect it. More
This week a teacher in Illinois was suspended for showing her government class some clips of The Daily Show. There are a lot of reasons that showing a bunch of high school kids clips of the show in class could be problematic. They’ll get an opinionated slant on the news instead of unbiased facts, they might feel uncomfortable with the humor, and they’ll have less time to memorize things the Preamble to the Constitution. But suspending her seems a little extreme.
Even if most of the students disagreed with Stewart’s slant on the day’s events, it could have been a good way to spark an impassioned class debate, and as anyone who’s gone to high school can attest to, there’s a lot worse being shown to students today. More
