Dear Future Me.
It occurred to me a few days ago that I have been on this planet for more than 50 years, that’s over half a century.
It’s just a matter of time before my memory starts to fade and I start to forget things I have done in the past, both good and bad.
With that in mind, I think it would be a good idea to start documenting my past while I have the ability to remember it.
This could be anything, happy times and bad, thoughts, ideas as well as a record of the skills and knowledge that I have at the moment.
I am wanting to do this on the internet simply because, if they’re on the internet I can’t loose them. If I were to store them on CD or DVD or in a paper journal there is a chance that they could get lost or damaged. As far as I can see, the internet is probably the safest place for them.
The idea is, I do this for me, in years to come I can look back on these and with any luck have my memory jogged, then there are members of my family and friends who can look back at them as well.
That’s it, it will be interesting to see what future me of, say, this time next year thinks.
