A lot can change in 10 years. The omnipresence of iPhones. Everyone talking to robots in their homes, telling them when to play music. Streaming The Office now on Netflix when, ten years ago, you were either watching it when it aired, torrenting it, or borrowing seasons from friends or coworkers. Man, technology has changed.
But so have people. Folks are sharing photos on Twitter comparing their 2009 selves with their current 2019 selves to prove that fact.
I'd say this is a glow up.
What phone is that, an N-Gage?
People shared all types of transformations.
Some people barely changed at all.
She hasn't aged a day!
Some people learned a lot in ten years.
And praised the virtues of self-love.
Pharrell somehow got younger.
How does the man do it?
Tanning vs countouring.
Wonder what makeup trend they'll be obsessed with in 2029?
Little bit of scruff and different glasses.
Rami, I love to break it to you...
...but you're aging in reverse.
All right, it doesn't count if you were a child in 2009.
Of course you're going to look different.
Some discovered the power of black and white.
And light Photoshop/Facetune.
Others maintained the wonderful duckface.
Ten years of ducking.
Of course there were memes about it.
That's what I call a glow up.
A marked improvement.
Green sunglasses and purple sweater, so awesome.
Some people's facial expressions haven't changed at all.
That golden hour, though.
The level of disrespect here.
It's just too high.
...Blake and Post and two totally diffetrent people but I see where they're going with it.
Thanks a lot, Jon.
For grabbing the most terrifying screenshot from Black Swan.
Jake, you haven't changed at all.
Surprised peace sign, very nice pose.
Just look at that Drake Christmas sweater.
Beards and ditching PB&J shirts...
...always a good look. So is the fade.
Ditching ties for fedoras.
A bold choice that paid off for this man.
He became his own cool uncle.
How do you look younger now, but still not?
This is an accomplishment.
Hot to hotter.
Kevin, you look damn good my friend.
Rian Johnson with this epic tweet.
Guess how many Last Jedi haters tweeted in response to this one?
Whip upgrades count.
That 2009 one looked pretty cool, though.
Red tassle cap to red headphones.
Beard's a good look, my man.
Ripped, and the awkward smile is gone, nice.
Mirror selfies in that pose should be gone by 2029, though.
Shia LaBeouf's changed a lot.
Also, did he gain a dog?
I hope he's still playing for children.
Come on you were a cute kid.
Glow-ups only count if you were an ugly kid.
Were people still using MySpace in 2009?
That first photo is a total MySpace pose.
Some smiles never change.
And that's a good thing.
C'mon dude, you did more than grow a beard.
You also got rid of a pseudo-mullet.
A bold claim...
...especially when you used to have sunglasses and now you no longer do.
Everyone looks bad in school pictures.
So this doesn't count.
You can still be happy!
2019 can be your year that defines the rest of your existence! Smile again like that little girl in the bay!
