Everyone who has attended Catholic school their entire life knows the struggle. Whenever someone asks you where you go or went to school, they automatically think you’re super religious. It was always a struggle on dress down days because having a cute outfit was key. Whether you loved or hated your time attending a Catholic school, these 20 signs are bound to make you feel at least a little nostalgic.
1. You thought that hemming/rolling your skirt above your knees was scandalous.
2. You always tried to sit next to your crush during school masses so that you could shake hands during “Peace be with you.”
3. Your answer to every religion essay had something to do with Jesus’s love.
4. You had to go to confession with your class during Advent and Lent.
5. In fact, you went to confession so much that you and your friends actually planned your “sins” in advance.
6. You only have about 10 cute outfits that you just rotate through because you wear a uniform 5 days a week.
