We’ve all been there: young, impressionable, and in retrospect, pretty embarrassing. Thankfully (sort of), people have cameras to capture us at our worst and even more thankfully, some have chosen to share their worst pictures in the aptly titled subreddit Blunderyears. For your enjoyment, the best of our worst years captured in pictures:
