There are moments I've wished that I'd kept a log of things that have come and gone in my life. Just the technology category would be vast, but I wonder about other categories...like books that have gone out of print and are impossible to get, or movies they don't show on TV but aren't also available for purchase, or cars I thought were cool, but bombed in sales and were removed from production, or people no longer in my life--for whatever reason. And maybe I'm more sensitive to it now because there is literally no one alive anymore who knows the history of me. There's no one to ask whether I've had the mumps, or at what age I started to walk, or who my very best friend was, or how old I was when we got our first VCR. As I get older, I let more go, and consequently remember less. So maybe I ought to be writing some of this stuff down so that I can at least look back on some of it and reflect on my life "back in the day."
In case you've never considered it, do you think it would be neat or a total bore to catalog, in some fashion, a list of things (and maybe people) that have come in and out of your life?
And if you want to do it, here's a cool list of 25 things you may never consider on your own, from the fine folks at Wallet Pop.
I admit that #19--the Maryland Blue Crab was the hardest for me to read about. Being a Baltimore girl, some of my fondest memories are of crab feasts with friends and family. To think that could be a thing of the past makes me truly sad.
