The Year Was 1998...


Friends, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and The X-Files were hitting their peaks on the small screen.

James Cameron's Titanic swept up 11 Oscars at the 70th Academy Awards ceremony.

U.S. President Bill Clinton denied having sexual relations with Monica Lewinsky. The world's largest airport opened in Hong Kong. Microsoft released Windows98. Apple birthed the iMac.

Singer-songwriter Khalid, pop heartthrob Shawn Mendes, and Modern Family's Rico Rodriguez were all born. A British author by the name of J.K. Rowling published the second novel about a boy wizard called Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. A former Mickey Mouse Club member named Britney Spears dropped her first single called "...Baby One More Time." And after the successful cloning of Dolly the sheep, 19 European nations agreed to forbid the cloning of humans.

1998 was another year during which lots of things happened. Celebrities died, disasters occurred, and scandals erupted throughout those 12 months.

And yours truly (gulp) graduated from high school.

20. Years. Ago.
