Joel

When I was 17,

I was attracted to really hot girls--ones I couldn't have. I liked this one girl who didn't pay attention to me. I followed her around and offered to carry her crap.

Now,

I like girls who are independent and who can take care of themselves. I like girls with their own style.

When I was 17,

I was self-conscious about everything -- especially the way I looked. I couldn't afford cool clothes, so I felt like I didn't fit in.

Now,

I'm not self-conscious about anything. I'm just comfortable with myself. If people like me, they like me. If not, it doesn't matter to me.

When I was 17,

I spent my money on bills for my family. We didn't get an allowance, so I worked t pay the electric bills.

Now,

I buy lots of gadgets: computers, video games, and cameras. If i really want to impress a girl, I'll send her flowers or get her jewelry.

When I was 17,

I was very angry and full of hate. I would get into fights al the time. With everyone--even people on the streets.

Now,

I have more patience. I won't punch a guy for just saying something. I'm much more mature.

Benji

When I was 17,

My closet was filled with cassette tapes that I copied from my friends, from bands like Rancid and Green Day. I had a couple guitars.

Now,

It's full of black clothes, my guitars, and tons of junk. I'm a pack rat. I save everything. I've tried to throw stuff away, but I never succeeded.

When I was 17,

I liked any girl who gave me the time of day -- any girl who paid attention to me!

Now,

Around girls, I'm still shy. I don't have the confidence to go and talk to the cute girls I see at clubs. I feel like I'd be bothering them.

When I was 17,

I had crushes on Gwen Stefani, Alyssa Milano and Christina Ricci.

Now,

My crushes are Christina Aguilera and Christina Ricci. Not Britney though -- she's too famous!

When I was 17,

I hated my dad because he walked out on our family.

Now,

I wish my dad the best -- I look at life differently. I've got a lot more love for the world. I've healed.

When I was 17,

I thought celebrities were all stuck-up. unappreciative and un gracious.

Now,

I've met a lot of celebrities and I realize people are just people.
