What are some things you did back in your middle school or high school days that you look upon with general shame and embarrassment? Like having your goth phase, being "that kid" that tried to be weird and shit, like drawing on your arms and saying random quirky stuff all the time.

For me, in 9th and 10th grade, I was your typical classic rock fanboy (still like it, just not obsessed with it anymore), and I had really long hair. But mine was thick and wavy and really puffed out. I'd also wear band shirts every. single. day and I had this thing where if I saw a shit I liked, but they didn't have it in my size (small), I'd just get whatever they had, so my clothes were way too big.

Anyways, in the first couple years of high school, I was "the hippie kid."

yea that, but in like 7th-8th grade

except the big clothes

I was definitely the hippie kid. Especially since all my friends went to Catholic school.

My 9th grade year I had my hair at exactly the right length to cover my face. And so I did. My entire face. Needless to say that was a year of fights with principals, teachers, cops, etc.

Actually, I'm not embarrassed by this. Everyone was either afraid of me or loved me.

I almost went through an emo phase, but fortunately I rarely bought clothes, so I was just a depressed normal looking kid. Probably good. But really I look on everything from middle school with shame and embarrassment, because I was dumb and really ugly (long hair that I parted down the middle until 8th grade, always wore a big old red sweatshirt). I did a lot of embarrassing shit, but I guess thats just being a middle schooler.

Highschool wasn't nearly as bad, but there are things I don't like to bring up. Mostly freshman year when I was still hanging out with too many emo people and I decided that I had multiple personalities. Nothing after that was too bad though. I did cut my hair short senior year as part of moving past everything I'd done in the past. I don't regret the long hair though, I might go back to it some day.

Freshman year, when I thought bands like Five Finger Death Punch were the epitome of metal. Ohhh, how foolish I was.

I would wear oversized clothing in an attempt to hide how skinny i was and had long and wavy unkempt hair that the girls all loved for some reason cause it was "nice and soft" despite never being brushed or shit.. i never listed to any brootalcoremetal or any of that cheesy crap although i had an embarrassing phase where all my music was angsty.

my life is borderline cringeworthy as it stands now but i don't think it's cause of how i project myself, just what's going on inside my mind lol

I was the kid you got to to dumb/dangerous stuff...think steve-o from jackass.

I set my ass and my balls on fire.
I told one of my friends to back up about 10 yards in his car and I wanted to see if i could jump onto the hood and run off the back of it, ended up with my knee about 3 inches on the other side of his windshield.

Man I was a dumb sonofabitch.

Oh god, why.

I began middle school having hit puberty before everyone else. I looked way too old for a twelve year old, which I dealt with by getting mixed up with creepy, stupid older kids. I snuck out and did stupid stuff a lot. I was this weird awkward loner/party girl hybrid. I also constantly wore long sleeves even in the desert summer because of body issues and cutting. And I listened to Linkin Park and From First to Last.

Chilled out by high school, then became the classic rock kid. I carried my guitar around everywhere. Also believed that I could only hang out with guys because "girls are too catty" and other internalized misogynistic crap. Then I became severely depressed and stopped talking to my friends and isolated myself from everyone, which I rationalized by telling myself that all the kids at my school were just super lame. I skipped a ton of school and treated my few friends like dirt because I held a lot of resentment toward them. So I spent my time studying and became a pseudo-intellectual for a while.

Thanks for leading me on a cringe fest, Madcap.

I was the hippie kid in middle school, I liked classic rock and had medium to long hair. In high school I was seen as a poser because I hung out with the alternative crowd but didn't enjoy everything they did.

I don't really cringe when I think of my middle school/high school self. I know I'm an interesting person but I must've seemed quite boring to others. idk I tried to be nice to everyone (still do) but didn't act overly social either so that no one really knew me then. I do this to an even larger extent now, actually.

Went through some kind of half emo phase when I was 13, listened to nothing but Bullet For My Valentine because I was trying to be super edgy and leik omg their name means killing a girlfriend!! After that I grew my hair out for 3 years without getting it cut once and wore band shirts everywhere. Started jamming with a couple of new people, changed my perspective, shaved my head into a mohawk, grew a full face beard by the age of 17 and never looked back.

I was at the library every single day. In middle school I lived right next door to one, and in high school I decided that they couldn't teach me anything so I cut class and hung around the main library reading or playing neopets.

I went straight from being the "christian kid" to way too creepy for eighth grade. Then I got braces and earned a reputation as the "militantly conservative" kid. I was fat this whole time.

Good end to the story because it ends with discovering how much I love guitars, starting on the football team and owning an AMG mercedes; so I really have no room to complain. I just get so mad because of all the chicks I missed while I was being an insecure, fat, asshole. I really piss myself off sometimes...

I used to be a conservative Christian. It's not like my parents influenced me, it was just a phase for me. Thank god I grew out of that crap.
I had my classic rock and metal4ever phase as well. Grew out of that too, but I still like them.
I used to be those people who had a severe allergic reaction to anything that deemed "politically correct" and thought I was too cool for "societal norms, man." But then I discovered empathy.

And if only I was a different person in high school to where I could have asked this cute tall red head to a date.

I know right? That one girl that never really gave you any attention and it turns out she was into community service and stuff like that instead of rebels, guitar players, and defensive ends...
And she went with your "nice guy" friends and you still wonder what you missed years down the road

No. Not at all. I just never talked to her. She never gave me attention because I did nothing to warrant it.
