My First Letter To Future Me.

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.

Do What Makes You Happy

How do I start this?

If you follow me on any of my social media accounts you might have noticed that I have deleted everything, every picture on Instagram, every video on YouTube and every blog post here on iJim.co.uk.

See, if I am honest I find it incredibly hard to talk about just one thing on social media, I can’t just make videos on one subject, it’s not that I am infocused, I’m not.

I have lots of interests, everything from being outdoors, playing Minecraft to horror and the paranormal and lots more.

The problem is, how am I supposed to talk about just one thing when I have so many interests?

So, with that in mind, I have a problem.

Do I make posts about stuff that interests me or has caught my interest at any point in time? Or do I stick to just one thing knowing that Google aand YouTube analytics prefer a website or channel that they can slip into one tidy category.

I want to make videos, I have been making them for about 10 years now so it’s kind of what I do, it’s part of me now. The same with writing blog posts, I have been doing this since 2008 now, but I don’t want to just write and talk about one thing.

I know that if I were to ask people what they think, I would get the usual.. ” Do what makes you happy” and that is true, a person should do what they love.

Yeah, I think I have just answered my own question.

Just do what makes you happy.
