I remember: Wanting to write down everything

A year ago, I used to maintain a tumblr blog filled with memory triggers. I wanted to remember the highlights of each day, but didn’t have enough time to write a long-arsed diary entry about it. Thus this tumblr was born: http://rainbowramaremembers.tumblr.com. To add to the memoryceptionness of it, I tried to post a throwback anecdote of sorts with the explanation post, but sometimes the lazies get to me, or I become too excited about the happenings for that day so that was often scrapped.

I missed that tumblr though, and so here I am again, trying to revive that concept in this platform. I love Instagram but I want to blather on and on and this here might be a better avenue for blathering. Recently, I’ve installed the WordPress phone app since I am always in a hurry and I fiercely love blogs and blogging. I spend more time with my phone than the desktop anyway, and it’s super convenient to just snap a photo and squeeze the story out of it anywhere and then post it asap. This means more frequent posts, but I do apologize for the occasional typos heh. Mah phone’s screen is small.

Where was I? Oh yeah, memories.

Let’s start with this:


A spread from my Starbucks planner last year. Because I am a bit obsessed with this “documentation” thing, I drew things I’m grateful for using watercolor pencils. From the entries, you can see that I like stuffing my face with food, shopping, crafting, surprise meetups, and bacon. And my memory still isn’t that reliable–check out that entry at the bottom left, haha. Happy to note that things haven’t changed.
