Revenge Of the Nerds

What was your high school experience like?

Were you a cheerleader, into sports, popular, lots of boyfriends? Or were you like me - the straight A student who hated dressing out for PE, belonged to the National Honor Society, the Beta Club, and gave up her free period to volunteer as a teacher's aide?

Yep, I was a nerd, and most of my friends were nerds. So when I got an email from someone at my old high school letting me know that our graduating class now had a free private alumni website (as opposed to Classmates.com, who you have to pay for if you want to contact anyone), I couldn't resist going to check it out. Very nice, actually, and one of the suggestions it had for your "profile" was to put up "Then and Now" pictures, so that everyone could see your face how it looked in high school, then see a recent picture of what you looked like now.

I honestly can't believe I'm about to do this, but I'm going to show you my "Then" and "Now". :-)

First, the "Now':










And here's the "Then":

Yes, it's me. LOL Amazing what losing a few pounds, a pair of contacts, and a change in hair color and style can do, isn't it? If you compared your "then" vs. "now", what would the biggest change be?
