Going to an all girls’ school seemed like the worst thing that could happen to you as a teenager! It’s as though you were sectioned off into your own world – girl world – while the rest of your friends got to grow up ‘fraternizing’ with boys! However, while we were cribbing about being at an all-girls schools, now that we look back at that time in our life, it was kinda awesome!
So if you’ve also gone to an all-girls school, here are some things that’ll totally make you go “that’s me”!
The stampede scene in the Lion King really doesn’t even compare to what the race to the canteen looks like.
You can spread gossip faster than a fire can spread in a room full of petrol – this is a fact. And you have been a victim of it too!
There is always – always one ridiculously good looking male teacher. Or an average-looking one who SEEMS gorgeous for the lack of boys in your life. Either way, you + him = every daydream (especially in his class!)
This clearly translated into “only tell one more person” (who will tell one more person, who will tell yet another person, DUH).
Hrithik Roshan. OMG, I swear I will change my name if it lands on E-for-enemy! Or worse, S-for-sister! But if we’re playing the PG 13 version and saying S for sex, then I’m totally down!
Um, hello – what did YOU do during the activity period?! Actually learn an instrument? Hah!
And if they were doing a play at your school, and happened to walk through the cafeteria at lunchtime – there would be staring, analysing and complete interrogation as to who this stranger was!
There was always one of your friends who had a brother that went to an all-boys school. This girl was basically idolized by all!
For example: waxing your legs and arms, during the winter, was more than entirely optional. It’s all going to be covered up anyway! It’s such a win-win, no pain, still beautiful!
Whether you were part of the crew that didn’t wear your belts with your salwar kameez or knew how to work that hitched up skirt and knee-high socks look – this is a skill you’ve mastered!
After all, you and your friends have, accidentally, walked into at least two or more bathroom crises in your time at school – where someone was undoubtedly in tears!
It just wasn’t an option to walk any other way, plus you had SO much to talk about since last period! (And when she was sick in bed, you actually felt a bit lost.)
And there is that table of girls, in every single year group, and no, you do NOT want to sit with them! But you’ll still fake-smile at them when you pass them in the corridor, of course.
But as soon as inter-school fest season arrives, all your unused makeup comes out in full force! Lipstick, kajal, hey, does anyone have an eyeshadow brush?!
Arre, tuitions are toh obviously going to be co-ed na. WIN!
And heaven help him if he had a bike and came to pick her up from school – at least 17 other girls would instantly fall in love with him and ask her if he has any hot friends! She has to set the entire class up.
But even with the little distance separating you, you only ever met the guys at inter-school dances and competitions! Which you got excited about weeks in advance!
Give us those paranthas with dripping ghee even today. Arre, it won’t be wedding season for another two months na, it’s all fine!
No one has seen you hairier, hungrier and, err, boy-crazier – and let’s be honest: if you can make it through girl-world together, you can definitely conquer this world!
Women can do whatever they put their minds to and school taught us that. Feminism and sisterhood stuck then and it still sticks now!
