It's awfully sad how much I enjoyed going to the school bathroom. There was so much to do there, that is if it didn't smell disgusting. Most of the time they smelled like cleaning products, which wasn't the worst thing ever.
If you think about it, we spent a lot of time in school bathrooms, but what did we actually do there? Here are 10 things we did in a school bathroom, aside from actually using it for its intended purpose.
1. Using it as a hideout
When the weather wasn't great or you just needed some alone time, crouching on a toilet seat was the only thing you could do. I hated going out for recess when it was cold, so I would hideout with a couple friends in a bathroom stall so teachers couldn't find us and force us to go outside.
2. Spending a considerable amount of time looking at yourself
Everyone was guilty of doing this. We didn't have selfies to inflate our egos, but we did have our own minds. If you weren't obsessed with your image in a positive way, then you probably were in a negative way. I had a bad habit of standing in front of the mirror and worrying about the pimples on my face.
3. Drawing competitions
Bathroom stalls were basically canvases. The best part was that your work wasn't going to be graded, so you could draw anything your heart desired.
4. Professing your love to your crush
Drawing a heart and writing your initials and your crush's was what the bathroom was mostly used for. The thing is, your crush would never know that you liked them, but that's probably how you liked it.
5. Wetting toilet paper, adding soap, and throwing it up at the ceiling.
This was a strange trend from back in the day. I'm not sure what led many of us to do this, but it explains why our school janitors hated us.
