I think, yes... I changed a lot since high school. Especially the way im dress, the way i talk, the way i think about problems, everything changed! I posted some picture in some account in another website and my friends said that i was really different from how i looked when i was in high school. I asked them if its better or worse? ahhaha... and they said its better.. far better. ahhaa Its nice to hear that, and to know that as time goes by, we are getting old and the things that left only the memory about high school that can be something unforgetable if we meet our old friends and classmates... Especially how our school also changed... getting old day by day... and our teacher are getting old and weak, we even cant imagine, how we changed from uniform style into working outfit... that may be formal or informal... We changed... because we learned to change... Change ourselves to be better and better... until the time when we look back, there's no regret and only satisfaction. I wish that im proud to tell to my kids or even grandchildren that how life changed me... I hope you want to share your insight here about life and how its affect you... to be a person in present time. have a nice day.

Yes, everything from high school changed. My personality, my looks, my musical preference, my principles. I should say everything except friends. Before i was into hiphop and now i'm into metal. Before i would love to grow my hair long and put some style to it. Now my head is shaven for the "mean" look. lol! I think i gained enough weight because back in high school, i was a skinny lanky guy. Of course i am much wiser today and more confident about myself than before. Before i was so quiet that i won't speak my mind.

I haven't changed a lot. The only thing I've done is become less fearful, and I've taken a few chances. Also, I've come to be more aggressive and determined to not sit back quietly and keep my head down.

My high school days were more than 30 years ago, and I have definitely changed quite a lot since then. While my facial features still bear much resemblance to what I looked like in school, I have matured a lot more having gone through further studies, the Navy, marriage and a whole lifetime of career as an IT professional. I am much wiser and more worldly. I have traveled to many places over the past 20 years, and have much exposure to what's out there beyond where I live and work. I have also grown more physically, especially sideways, and I definitely have put on weight compared to when I was a teen.

I'm nearing my five year reunion (this summer) and I did take the moment to look back at who I was back in high school, to who I am now. I honestly can't say I've changed too much other than becoming more of an adult in that I am more responsible for my actions and my decisions. Overall, I believe the core of my existence has not changed. I am still a strong, proud, woman who is in charge of my own life. Though I think I should comment that I attended a private college prep school that really empowered and challenged women. In that sense, I believe my education developed my strong core much earlier than some other women may have if they were not given such an opportunity to excel.

Yes, I did change a lot since highschool. I can say that I have improved physically, mentally and emotionally. My personality has changed, I think experiences taught be to be more confident. I'm more mature now in my way of thinking, I can handle situations better. I will always be child at heart of course =)

Yes, I have changed a lot. I still fill the same inside as I did back then, as far as youthfulness. But as far as the way I dress I think I dress more mature, even though I still love bell bottom jeans, LOL!!! My eldest grandson sometimes tease me & tells me to grow up, LOL!!!! I tell him no I will not grow up I am still a kid at heart, LOL!!!! I love to play video games & he says not that many grandmas play video games. I still love cartoons, my favorites is Jimmy Neutron & Scooby Doo. My husband even teases me at times & tell me I act like a kid in some areas of my life, LOL!!! I still wear my hair long, I hate short hair on myself. I try to dress youthful & not granny. But as far the things you need to change in ones life as we get older I say yes I have changed a lot.

I would have to say yes and no. In high school I got pregnant at 16, so I was already on the verge of serious change. I was an outcast, didn't care about what others thought and tried to hide from others. Plus, the way I dressed and all was definitely different than now. Now, I have kids, a husband, a puppy and other concerns. So yes, I have changed a lot but still don't want to be the center of attention. I would rather give someone else the attention. High school was a joke and so were most of the kids there.

Yes, of course I have changed a lot since my high-school days. What I miss most is wearing my mini skirts and stilletoes. Well, I would not look as nice in them as I used to, even if I do manage to wear them now. Apart from these, well, I have become a completely different person, if not from the inside then outward appearance have definitely changed drastically. I am a mother and wife now and I have to keep that in mind… I am not and cannot be the same carefree teenager who had mom to fall back on for everything that ever went wrong.

Hi manya_pearl, I would also say yes I changed a lot nowadays from high school. I agree with you, my dress and how i socialize with others. But this time around i can say that i grown to more matured man. I have visions and objectives to widen my horizons. I dream big and start to work hard for it. I aspire great things that i am now looking forward to it. I now appreciate more what life really is. I'm living it to the fullest. I'm moving on the right track. :-) Happy mylotting.

1. Back in HS, i wore boy's clothes. Now, I still have problems when it comes to fashion but I do wear girl's clothes already. Still a bit rugged though. My character is not also that feminine ever since. In HS, I was mistaken to be a lesbian. I am straight but I'm just not the type who wears very feminine clothes. You won't see me in skirts or sleeveless. Only when I'm really forced to. 2. As to my character, I think I had bad attitudes and perceptions that I have abandoned now. All in all, I do have matured (a bit more than a bit), and am more responsible.

Well, I did change a lot. In High School, there is this trend call popularity and I hate it when privileges goes to the populars I mean where is the equality. From attitudes to the way I think. I mean, there are still the same, my kid at heart attitude will never change. As for personality, Well, I don't know maybe a little. And some people say I am more mature but not that open because I tend to hide my true self to others.

no, not really. it's just that i know myself better and i realized i should give in every now and then. i also learned to control myself a little more when it comes to my frankness in dealing with others.

well, we weren't allowed to wear jeans to school when I went, in fact, only the last half of the last year were we able to where pant suits. but I really don't think my style has changed much from then - only older, fatter, greyer - and need reading glasses -- grrrrrrrrr
