The first viral challenge of the year is still going strong on social media. Celebrities are hopping on board the 10-year challenge or the #HowDidAgeHitYouChallenge, which is reminding us what we looked like a decade ago. For many celebrities, however, the difference isn’t too noticeable. While the first photo in my 10-year challenge would be one of me with frizzy hair and an awkward pose, due to the witchcraft of celebrity they all somehow look like they took their first photo two days prior to the second.

This is especially true for Mariah Carey, who shared her own 10-year challenge photo. The difference between the two pictures was completely undetectable because, well, it was just the same photo twice.

“I don’t get this 10-year challenge, time is not something I acknowledge. *Picture taken at some point prior to today,” the singer said.

People loved her iconic spin on the meme and many decided that they too will stop acknowledging time. Her phrase has turned into a meme itself.

One person said it’s already the “quote of the year.”

For the record, people found a photo of Mariah from 2009 and she does look nearly identical to the way she looks today.

It seems refusing to acknowledge time may actually be the key to eternal youth.
