Showering in Gym Class

I am REALLY late to the Freaks and Geeks party, but these shows are hilarious. I was watching one of the DVDs last night, and the gym showering scenes had me in stitches. I remember being HORRIFIED at the thought of showering in gym class way back when. Not much has changed -- I'd still be mortified to do so.

I just started Netflixing this show too! To be honest, I guess I was expecting a little more but I can't pass up anything with a little vintage James Franco in it.

I heard this was a really good show. I totally remember the 9th grade gym shower, I was a late bloomer and was beyond embarrassed!

I used to just adore this show... it reminded me quite a bit of my own cringe worthy adolescence.

When it was cancelled a little piece of my heart was taken with them.

I remember being horrified that I was going to have to shower in front of all of the other girls in gym class. We had mandatory gym class with mandatory group showers every day from grades 7 through 12. I felt physically ill the night before I started the seventh grade because I knew that I was going to have to shower naked in front of everyone the next day.

Much to my shock, it didn't wind up particularly bothering me after the first couple of days, though. After a few days no one seemed to give it a second thought. After about a week very few of us even bothered to wrap up in a towel back and forth from locker to shower, there didn't seem to be much reason to since the showers were completely out in the open anyway.

It's kind of amazing how we tend to get upset over little things at first, and then find out that they're not so bad.
