Growing up sucks. It's awkward, you don't know much - you're still trying to figure out the world and your own self out! But then puberty hits, and suddenly for those lucky few (who weren't very lucky before), a spark ignites the potential that was obscured from view.
Perhaps if society didn't value beauty so much this wouldn't have to be an issue. Don't get me started.
For those of you still waiting to release your ugly duckling potential, I see a formula here.
For Men: Lose the baby weight, get fit, grab a suit, and allow your natural bone structure to speak for itself.
For Women: Lose weight, get your hair did, cake on the makeup, and don't forget the clevage! Your boobs are probably more important than your face. Enjoy all the extra attention you're getting, but don't take advantage of all the new sexual advances pointed your way, because then you'll be a slut (at least society will label you so). :D
