We’re having major glo up struggles ourselves tbh.

First up, lets all get on the same page: A glo up is modern terminology to describe the ugly duckling syndrome, where someone suddenly gets very attractive after growing up and hitting puberty. We’ve all done it, witnessed the magic happen to someone else or simply pined for it to happen to ourselves, but either way – it’s a thing and we want it.
