High school - the time of self-discovery, experimentation, and trying to get good grades. Graduating from this institution is not only a time for family celebration, but it also symbolizes new beginnings, whether you went off to college, started your first job, or decided to travel around the world. Whether it was 3, 11, 25 or 48 years ago, most of us walked across a stage to receive that well-deserved diploma.
Did you pay attention to what was playing on television when you went to school, or were you too busy making friends to care? Did you graduate around the time when "Green Acres" and "I Love Lucy" were on air, or around the time when Barney proposed to Robin on "How I Met Your Mother?" Or maybe it was around the time when "Mork & Mindy," "Happy Days," and "Lavern & Shirley" did a crossover episode?
