Wasn't life easy when you were fourteen?

Do you know why this guy is looking to the side? Because although he thinks things are gonna be too cool for high school now, what he don't know is that things are gonna get screwy quicker than he thinks when he gets older. Look out there, bub. People are jackholes, coffee is actually good, go to New York before they talk you out of it and don't let the bullcrap and your old man get to you. Oh, I almost forgot: DON'T MARRY YOUR COLLEGE SWEETHEART. SHE CHEATS ON YOU WITH A GUY NAMED HENRY ONE YEAR AFTER YOU MEET HER.

I always wondered what happened to Rodney Allen Rippy when he grew up.

I'm tellin' ya, I was a good looker when I was a kid. That winning smile, those cute cheeks, the puffed up hair... I could have sold loads of hamburgers! I swear I was the apple of Sara Gordon's eyes. I dare you Ivan or anyone to post their freshman photo and see if they were as cute as me.

Ahhh, innocence. If you knew then what I know now...

If I still had my freshman photo I'd post it...but I think I got rid of that stuff a long time ago. In the immortal words of Satchel Paige: "Don't look back...somebody might be gaining on you..."

Hence the prob, son. Hence the prob. That's the rub.

Four years of high school, and I have no yearbook to speak of for any of them. I think it was a defense mechanism for challenges like this.

Although truth be told, I was quite the handsome devil at that age. Moreso than I ever realized. Oh, the things I could have gotten away with had I known. But alas, I probably wouldn't be the man I am today had I indulged back then.
