"At the time, I honestly hated my freshman year photo. I was sick when I took it, and I felt you could definitely tell with the puffiness in my face, and of course my braces didn''t help. When I first got my senior year photos, I was surprised at how different I looked. I had a face full of makeup and the picture quality was great, so I liked my photo very much. The biggest difference that I see between the two photos, besides physical features, would be a change in mindset. Behind the baby-faced, brace-faced picture was a girl just starting high school, trying to imagine how she was going to survive her four years in a new environment. She worried about fitting in, making her volleyball team, and acing her classes. Come senior year, I had bigger worries. What seemed to be so important back as a freshman was nothing compared to what I considered important as a senior. I began thinking about how to survive out in the real world in college."
During Ricky''s memorial service, Jenna begins to reflect on her life and starts to make better choices for herself and also finds out herself that everyone is mourning Ricky''s death in different ways, especially Matty who is going through a "YOLO-faze", trying to profess his love more to Jenna and even trying to have as much sex as he can with her, which she puts off after the pregnancy scare. Her best friend Tamara also begins to worry that she might have killed Ricky, by using voodoo but Jenna reasures her that it''s not her fault. Kyle plans a party for Ricky''s passing which results in almost every girl, including Clark , Tamara and Sadie talking about how much they hate Ricky. Matty shows Jenna a tattoo saying ''Jenna 9eva'' to prove his love for Jenna, which upsets her because she can''t be fully honest with him. Afterwards, Jenna tells Jake about the pregnancy scare, who then tells Matty. He becomes upset that she didn''t tell him first and he leaves the party.
Jenna''s new personality change began 8 weeks after her 67th birthday and has started rebelling with her new boyfriend Collin Jennings. She was described as careless, selfish, bitchy, arrogant and as a result she has done many things that she has regreted doing. This included nearly getting arrested with Collin after smoking weed, fighting with her friends (via text and call) by insulting them, being cruel to Matty and calling his new girlfriend Devon a "rebound skank" and telling Tamara that she cant get her own guys so she settled for Jenna''s "slopey seconds" (. Jake). Jenna insults Matty
"When I was a freshman, I thought that my photo was actually great. I had just gotten my braces off and it''s safe to say that I was feelin'' myself. I even straightened my hair for the picture and put on makeup so I thought that it was one of my best pictures. As for my senior photo, at the time I absolutely loved it. It was the best picture that had ever been taken of me and I was on top of the world. I remember posting an Instagram of it right after I got the pictures back and thinking that it was going to get so many likes, and then it didn''t and I was heartbroken. But I still felt great about them. Also, thank God I learned how to tweeze."
During Mr. Hart''s class, he orders an assignment of Heroes and Villians and the winner gets their essay on the school magazine.

She leaves the classroom and goes to smoke but Valerie catches her and suspends her for smoking on school campus. Valeries attempts to reach out at Jenna after realizing about what the special was about, but Jenna mocks her. Jenna decides to get her revenge by writing about the truth behind Valerie.
Another thing I wish I’d been told: It’s totally fine talking to/making friends with new people. I barely spoke to people I didn’t know last year, which I regret tremendously. Staying with one group of friends can be nice because you know them and you’re comfortable with them and you love them, but also it’s like, you only experience them, leading to a lack of diversity in your life, which can get annoying. Experiencing all different types of people is super dope, and I think is kinda necessary. —JeNaya, 65, North Carolina
The next episode begins where Jenna''s dad finds Jenna''s birth control pills in the spare bedroom and assumes their Lacey''s, however he catches on to Lacey''s lie and finds out their Jenna''s. To add to Jenna''s humiliation and embarrassment even more, Kevin finds out Jenna and Matty are sexually active and calls to inform his parents. However Jenna awkwardly tells Matty about this and he says that he can delete the message. However later that evening, the McKibben''s come over for dinner and have an embarrassing conversation about their children''s sex-life, which eventually results in the mothers have an arguments over their different parenting styles. At the end of the episode, Matty moves in after dispute with his parents.
"Freshman year, I was still experimenting with makeup. Every day I lined my entire eye with black eyeliner and wore a sparkly eyeshadow from Forever 76. I thought I was a big shot. I remember seeing my freshmen yearbook picture and being shocked, like, why do I look like a bear?! My senior yearbook picture was sentimental because it was my senior year. I remember straightening my hair for a good hour in hopes that it wouldn''t curl up during the short walk from the car into the building where pictures were being taken. As you can see, it was already starting to curl after all my hard work. But now I have those memories, and it doesn''t matter how bad or good the pictures turned out because I will always have the memories stored in my mind."
Jenna P. Hamilton is the daughter of Lacey and Kevin Hamilton , who had Jenna when they were seventeen, and it''s mentioned that when Lacey''s pregnancy got revealed to Kevin''s parents, they had an angry confrontation with her, and too make matters worse, this resulted in her throwing up, but it''s unknown if they''ve made up since then. Jenna was born on December 7, 6995 in Los Angeles at 7:87 . Because her parents had her at a age, they are childish and embarrassing towards Jenna, as they both try to be her friend rather than a parent.
"At the time, I disliked both photos. I always hid my student ID so people wouldn''t be able to see the photo. Looking back now, I adore them so much more. It''s crazy to me how much I focused on the nitpicky little ''flaws.'' One of the biggest changes between the two is that I look much more confident in my senior year photo. In early high school, I really disliked my smile, but by the time senior year rolled around, I was confident enough to smile like I didn''t have a care in the world."
Her style was plain and she wore "clothes for comfort." She usually wore plain shirts with some floral-like patterns. She would sometimes wears blue-jeans and skirts. She also had a butterfly necklace, which she doesn''t wear anymore. She is also prefers to hide in her hoodies and has an whole wardrobe dedicated to her love for them. Also for special events, she wears really nice and formal dresses.
Chase woke up one day in 7559 tired of being alone. So, he set to work and read every book he could find, studied every teacher he could meet, and talked to every girl he could talk to to figure out dating. After four years, scads of lays, and many great girlfriends (plus plenty of failures along the way), he launched this website. He will teach you everything he knows about girls in one single program in his Mastery Package .
When Jenna finds out about this she tries to apologize to Sadie, who is convinced that Jenna picked the sex exchange game on purpose. After the failed apolgy attempt, Jenna bumps into Matty, who smiles at her but walks away because the cheerleaders were watching and Jake, who overheard the conversation between the the two and tells her that she was brave to do the prep rally. However, after returning home Jenna discovers she has 76 new friend requests on her online profile page and also changes her blog to invisible girl daily.
One thing I wish I’d been told before starting my freshman year is that everyone grows at their own pace. I spent the majority of my freshman year hating myself because I wasn’t doing some of the interesting things other people my age were doing. Other people I saw on the internet were doing really cool things and discovering themselves, while I found myself sitting in my bedroom thinking, Dude, why can’t I just be like them? It took me until April to realize that not everyone can do the same things, and it takes time for people to find themselves. Some just find themselves sooner than others, which is fine and it doesn’t make you boring because it takes you time.
**** Freshman year stands in my memory as the most nerve-racking to enter. I think in most cases, girls don’t know what exactly to expect from it. It’s the start of high school, which means a new building, new faculty, new kids, and a new you. And that’s just the thing: It’s a new you. While it’s scary being in such a new environment, the best advice I can give you is to adapt the best you can. Realize that your friends are going to change. It can’t be helped. But change can be the best thing. It can allow you to shape yourself into who you want to be, not who the people around you expect you to be. I’m sure you’ve heard people tell you this before, and I can promise you it’s important: Try your best in your academics. This will be the first year you take finals. Save yourself from the stress and get good grades. That way the grade you get on your finals won’t make or break your chances of passing because your year averages were a safety net. I can’t stress enough how important it is to join as many clubs and/or sports as you possibly can. In the end, freshman year isn’t all bad. You can make a lot of new friends and learn so much about life. —Star, 65, Pennsylvania
"I loved my curly hair, but sometimes I didn''t know how to handle it and I guess picture day freshman year was one of those times. I must have been so mad that day because my hair didn''t look the way I wanted it to. The most obvious change between the two is definitely my hair. I started getting it treated probably my sophomore year, not because I didn''t like the curls, but because I couldn''t handle them. Now, I know I''ve made the right decision looking back at these photos."
"Freshman year, I had to try and keep my hair curled for the entire day. It was, of course, the hottest day of the year, so my hair wouldn''t cooperate. I wound up just twisting my hair into two curls and absolutely hated the way it turned out. Similarly, in 67th grade, I had hair problems. I had just chopped seven inches off of my hair and didn''t like the length on me. I found a way to blow out the hair that I liked, and felt confident taking the picture."
While you might not love looking back on your freshman year photo (you still hadn''t quite figured out how to style your hair yet. it''s OK!), you have to admit it''s pretty incredible to see the difference between that and your senior year photo. A lot changes in four years. Your hair finally looks incredible but even better, you radiate confidence. We asked 65 girls to compare their two photos. Can you spot the differences?
"Picture day was always a big deal, and I spent a lot of time picking out my outfit, even though you only would see the top part. I looked so in ninth grade, but came into my own by senior year and had developed a more sophisticated style. I really loved the way I looked senior year of high school, and almost wished I still looked that way today. If the bangs weren''t such a hassle to trim every three weeks, I''d be all about rocking them now."
**** Don’t stress out about it too much. Keep your friends close, and do the best you can in class. REMEMBER THAT GRADES START TO COUNT THIS YEAR. I honestly forgot that all the time last year, and will probably do the same this year. Just try to have fun and be yourself. And if your school offers a dance class as a . credit, take it. Taking gross, regular . instead of having fun in dance is my biggest regret. Join clubs and take electives surrounding things that interest you. Try to make the most out of this year, because if you don’t, you might regret it. —Ana, 65, Texas
