It's hard to believe that Disney Channel's High School Musical first graced our television screens a whopping 10 years ago.
As much as looking back on photos of myself as Balin in The Hobbit the Musical circa 2003 is embarrassing — and by embarrassing, I really mean has my heart swelling with pride — I'm glad that the evidence can only be found in the depths of a hidden family photo album.
If you're Vanessa Hudgens or any of the stars of High School Musical, your embarrassing teen years are still broadcast semi-regularly for the world to see. Recently, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Corbin Bleu, Lucas Grabeel and Monique Coleman reunited through Disney Channel to talk about what it was like to be a Wildcat.
Check out the video of them together, minus Zac Efron, unfortunately, to see them react to their old HSM audition tapes.
Personally, I would have given anything to share in her juvenile shame as a talented and gorgeous young starlet, but being forced to watch her audition tape had Hudgens wince a little watching tapes of herself in 2005.
Don't worry, Vanessa. Not only do you share this small level of humiliation with probably every person in the world, but you also made out with a huge paycheck and massively successful career. Now there's a reason to smile!
When it comes to teenage embarrassment, we're all in this together.
