How do you archive your life?
Every day is similar, yet every day is different from the day before.
Throughout your lifetime you participate in many events, you gain many experiences and you share many memorable moments with your loved ones.
In order to recall more easily all those memories you can archive what happened to you during many hours, days, months and years that passed.
When I was attending elementary school, I used to write a diary every day.
I was mostly writing about my classmates, homework, trips and grades.
It feels funny when I read now what I used to think long time ago- lots of matter seems trivial, but I know how important that used to be to me back in the days.
With a little pause in archiving experiences in high-school (apart from facebook- if it counts), let´s go fast forward to college. Those are the days when I started to write almost every quibble that came to my mind- I wrote them in notes on my Iphone.
At the same time, during college, I started to attend photography course. At first I took photos with my mobile phone, but when my lecturer made a disappointing statement how real photographers don´t use cell phone for art, I switched to my Canon camera. I started to shoot every situation, detail or place that seemed compelling.
Soon, new memories were created which I documented on my laptop.
My creative endeavours haven’t stopped with that- I started to write a blog and I became active on twitter- which are another ways of archiving your thoughts.
I think that you should always try to capture anything that you can think of- one day you might cherish that gathered memories even more.
Start writing a journal, take photos, make videos, archive your life- because for one day: memories shall stay…
