* This list is probably not mathematically accurate due to my aversion to and confusion with numbers. I am POSITIVE that I was 18 when I graduated, and I know FOR SURE that I am currently 43. Take the rest with a standard deviation of 2 years, plus or minus. See! I have no idea what I’m talking about mathematically. Sorry, AHS math teachers.
