Isn’t it strange to think that the year 2000 was 22 years ago? We don’t often like to think about it, especially when our age comes into question! But when it comes to memories, it’s always fun to look back. Check out this week in history and thrive in the nostalgia.
I’ll Remember You: ‘Friends’ aired its final episode.
When the NBC sitcom Friends made its debut in 1994, no one predicted that it would have become such an enormous success. Whether you’re more Phoebe than you are Rachel, or Joey than you are Ross, we can all agree this comedy touched our hearts.
