Permanently branded into your memory.

4. And there was only one place your parents would ever get coffee from.

Not to mention you were probably creeped out by that dude.

5. There’s a very good chance you wore a pair of these when it was warm...

Many hours spent watching the morning news just to see your school's name listed on there.

14. But if you didn't get that snow day, then your jeans ended up looking like this.

Literally frozen.

15. You couldn't wait to run up the "soundstair" at the Museum of Science.

The worst though was when you couldn't get it all to yourself.

16. Or listen to hometown hero Leonard Nimoy's voice in the Omnimax theater.

20. When MTV shot The Real World in Boston, all your adolescent '90s dreams came true.

Who didn't want to be on The Real World when they were a kid?!
