How many times has this happened before? You go throw on your iPod and you're jammin' out to one of your favorite songs only to realize it's been a solid 20 years since its original release but it seems like only yesterday. Yup. All the time.

That makes you feel pretty old, I'm sure, so these 10 things are sure to do the same. I shake my head and wonder, how?! Where has the time gone?! I mean, how could it be? I'm still only 20 years old (*note: in my mind.)
