Embarrassments

I am currently delving back into very old archives on my hard drive — folders in folders in folders — trying to find some research I did years ago on a certain topic, and I came across a folder titled ‘Articles.’ Apparently, when I was in my early 20s and found an article online that I wanted to bookmark, I would copy the text of it into a Word doc and save it that way. !!

Also I discovered that for about a year, younger me kept an ongoing “Log of Daily Embarrassments” that contains some things I’d forgotten and would just as soon not have reminded myself of on this lovely Saturday. Curse my compulsive documenting.

  2. That reminds me of the embarrassing moments section in magazines like “Seventeen” or “Teen” back in the day. Was one of my favorite sections to read! 😀

      Ha, totally! I am sooo glad I wasn’t online enough in high school and college to know about LiveJournal. I really dodged a bullet there.
