Did you peak in High School...

... or are you better-looking now?

Thank god, I didn't peak in HS! I would hate that. I've gotten better with age and am probably at my best currently at age 40. (Although I did look pretty damn good in my early 30s!) I'm in better physical shape as well.

  • Oh I'm SO glad I didn't peak in high school. I'm 20 and even though I've only been out of school for two years, I look a million times better than I ever did in school.

    I feel really bad for all the girls I went to school with that look like crap now. Some of them just...ugh. Two years in the real world can really change someone. I can't wait for our ten year reunion in 2016 =]

  • I looked like a boy in HS and I think I peaked in college. I do wish I could go back to looking like my college years! Those were the days....

  • the ages of 13-17 i was really awkward. i got chubby and my face was super round for some reason. i hate looking at pics of me from back then. i look way way better now IMO. prettier and in better shape.

  • haley, I hope you're just kidding!!! (plus, beauty comes from the INSIDE too!)

    And, jambalover, no matter how thin one is, a lot of people have chubby faces from when they were younger. But I have a round face anyway, so I always thought my face was fat! (maybe that's why I've aged so well though!)

    caitxrocks, I think it's funny about all the girls who DID peak in hs. Some I DON'T feel bad for (b/c they were b*tches!), but yeah... some it's just downright scary! The sad thing is that they KNOW they peaked then and are still trying to live off that! (both of my older sisters are great examples!)
