Partying in High SchoolWatch
I've got superrrr strict parents and I know they'd never in a million years let me go to a house party or anything like that, I'm not even allowed to have sleepovers. I'm 13 right now and I was just wondering how bad partying and alcohol/drugs/sex is in high school. I kinda think it's played up in films and tv shows and stuff cuz I've never actually seen anything too bad irl...
Personally, I had a sheltered upbringing and wasn't at all popular so didn't get invited to any of the parties that did take place. There's more alcohol and making out than full on drugs and orgies at that age; because it's new it seems like the best thing in the world, but is largely fumbling around that's overrated.
In uni though it's a bit different and there's definitely a partying culture that lasts well into second year. However, I would just continue being you and advise not to worry or rush anything because of fear of missing out/peer pressure; you'll get your time and you might even discover that that stuff really isn't for you anyways..
