#Throwback Thursday: Seattle Mag Staffers' School Photos

It's back to school time, so we unearthed a few embarrassing snaps from our youths
By: Lauren Mang | Posted August 26, 2014

Back-to-school time was one of my most favorite times of the year. There were new outfits to show off (tip from junior high me: wear your best outfit the second day, not the first when everyone is distracted with their unfamiliar schedules and locker combos), new pastel color-encased mechanical pencils to use, new books to cover, potential new crops of cute boys to ogle. Sheer glory.

Thus when it came time for this week's #ThrowbackThursday post, deciding upon its subject matter was as simple as ABC: school photos from the good old days. I meddled down our editors' and designers' and editorial assistants' memory lanes to dredge up school photos--everything from cute, to embarrassing, to a possible angry face--and this is what I got. Enjoy.
