My sisters and I were each born in election years, I'm the oldest. They were each born in years that Clinton was elected, and I was born the year George H. W. Bush was born.

I've always been one of the youngest in my grade because of when my birthday falls.

Full House started the year before I was born.

Third eye blind started a little before my birth (more than a few months less than a few years). However my favorite song they did was released as a single in November of the year I was born. I was also born the year of the Lewinsky scandal (according to this one site... I didn't know it had a hard and defined start date).
