There are plenty of things that I wish I could change about high school: My clothes, my hair, my obsessive love for obnoxious emo music, and the one time I farted in the middle of asking a guy out on a date. Yes, that really happened.
Looking back at those formative years, it’s hard not to cringe, and nothing is more cringeworthy than a high school yearbook. Containing what are possibly some of the most embarrassing photos committed to high gloss paper, yearbooks are journeys into the past that most of us don’t want to take. Admittedly, my yearbook quote was pretty benign – looking at these, I wish I had spent less time choosing that headband, and more time getting creative. Every single one of these makes me proud of the America’s youth.
