Where we are today, may not be where we once expected. For me, I thought I would be finishing my last semester of undergrad at a school in the warm weather, not the tundra. But as it goes, everything happens for a reason, and there’s no sense in thinking what could have been, just take pride in where you are now.
We all take pride in where we go, the people we meet, and the memories we make. One person, who was not quick to forget where we came from, as most of us do when we leave home for the first time, came up with the idea of a time capsule for our group of friends from home.
Danielle told me about her idea, and I immediately thought, what the hell would I put in the time capsule. Do I want to make it all high school memories, being that this only involves people I know from high school? Or should it be a mix of high school and college years?
Do I even have physical things to put in anymore? With facebook replacing the ancient photo album, and itunes replacing CD’s and cassette tapes, I’m trying to figure out if it’s cheating if I make mixes, and photo albums. Wouldn’t that be the way I want to remember things, and not necessarily be how things actually were?
Soon people will be making online time capsules—(idea for a business?)
All digs at modern technology aside, I know I want to put in a copy of the bucket list I’ve made for myself, pictures, music, but besides the pop culture aspect of it, what else should I include in the time capsule?
The best part has yet to begin. The party that will take place after we get everyone together, to do the big burying, and the party we have when we dig it back up, however many years down the line, will probably be two days that will stick out in our minds for the rest of our lives.
