Now that college has become a standard requirement for so many jobs and careers, there is a massive push by high schools to get their graduating students accepted and enrolled at an undergraduate college.

The real world is a harsh place. We don't learn that soon enough. When we're younger we believe everything is possible and whatever it is that we want to do for a living is going to be a success. So we head off to school to procure that dream and in school we learn all we can and the dream grows bigger.

Ah the good ole days of yore. The time when we believed the world was against us and education was a prison. Lord we knew nothing. Those days were the best we had. Ok, well maybe for many school wasn't a picnic but, there had to be some moments of joy. We all hold memories that last and bring a smile. Don't we?

Redditor u/hellohuman122 wanted everyone to share the best days of their lives, even though we didn't know it by asking.... What was a good memory you had when you were in school?
