Saved By The Bell Lessons That Translate to Your 20s
We all grew up watching Saved By the Bell, and that’s why we’re such a smart generation. Many of the life lessons we learned with the show can be used beyond the high school years. Here are some of our favorites that can translate to our 20s:
Clear your schedule and get sleep when stressed - In one of the most famous episodes, Jessie thinks that she can’t do it all (midterms and singing group) without help from caffeine pills. Turns out, the pills only hurt her ability to focus.
If you’re parents don’t approve of him, show them why you love him - Screech starts dating Violet from the glee club, but after he makes a fool out of himself in front of her parents, they forbid her to see him. Violet struggles with her song in the glee competition later on, and Screech saves the day by accompanying her onstage. Violet’s parents approve of him once they see how sweet he could be.
It’s not a good idea to date your boss - Kelly learned that when she fell in love with her boss Jeff at The Max. Spoiler alert: it didn’t last…. awkward.
Office politics exist at every job. It’s up to you to figure out the right thing to do - At the beach club, Zack’s boss Mr. Carosi tells Zack he should vote for his daughter Stacey in the Fourth of July beauty pageant. But it’s tricky because Lisa, Kelly and Jessie are in the pageant too. Zack has to look at the situation and votes for Kelly, much to Mr. Carosi’s dismay.
Sometimes the costs outweigh the benefits - Like that time the school struck oil, but then a spill happened and their pond and beloved ducks got covered in oil.
There’s no hope with dope – Enough said.
