It’s been a lot of fun to spend time thinking about the first twenty years of my life. I’ve been firing off texts to family members with questions such as “Do you remember when such and such happened?” and “What happened to such and such?”
I’m making a ton of notes and using every opportunity to write things down (such as waiting for an over-sized load to be complete in the launderette). Google Images has become my friend … want an image of a cassette playing Sony Walkman? No problem for Google.
For some topics, I simply used a few alphas for a title and a red pen as a highlighter. I now have 9 pages relating to the tracks of my years, and I keep wanting to add more.
For the section about where I lived during my first 20 years, I’ve used washi tape as a border and added copies of old photos featuring home. Because we were a military family, we’d lived in 4 different homes by the time I was six years old.
I’ve completed another six topics, meaning that I have passed the half way point. With the help of the 100 Day Project, I’m hopeful to be finished by the Summer.
