One thing I’m good at: keep every and ANY thing that has some kind of memory. Which is why I also why I love photography and I love now making youtube videos..it is all things I can have as memories one day. Family and friends tend to laugh at me for always having a camera out..but I just love it!
I LOVE being able to look back and remember all the cool places I went, all the things I found important when I was 15, all the notes I passed back and forth in class, all the trips I took with friends, all the great things I’ve achieved in my past, and so much more.
And I’m saying all of this to explain why I keep a MEMORY BOX. Instead of throwing everything away, I put it in a Brooks running shoe box. (Which is why I have a problem with throwing or could be called what my mom likes to refer me as, a hoarder)..but that’s not the point of this post :p
Why a brooks running shoe box? Because I started doing this back in high school when I was a competitive runner, and was going through my brooks shoes like crazy (as you’ll see from ONE thing in my memory box..). So, I took what I had instead of being the typical girly girl and making a cute diy box, and put my memories in these shoe boxes. Welcome to the life of un-artistic Sarah Grace.
ANYWAYS (sorry I get distracted a lot, ADD perhaps?).. As I was finally cleaning my room out this summer before leaving for my masters program and dietetic internship, I found all these shoe boxes (it was a long needed clean since I won’t be returning much anymore ‘tear’. Oh AND my mom has already made my room into her workout room since leaving TWO WEEKS AGO..thanks mom)
I couldn’t stop laughing from all the memories I found in the first one I opened..
SO many things I had forgotten about.. like my days of thinking I was “cool” for being blonde, thus why I wore shirts that said things like “Life is Better Blonde”, “Love is Blonde”, “Kiss Me I’m Blonde”
Of course those are just examples, I certainly didn’t have all three of those or anything..that would be so embarrassing :p (ok ok you caught me, I did..)
And had THIS..
The box also reminded me of when my friend and I thought we would be models one day… (yes we would switch off taking photos of each other)
Oh and how I never could take a decent student ID photo (some things never change I guess..)
But for EVERYTHING I unboxed from my past, you’ll have to watch THIS VIDEO 🙂
& don’t worry, I’ll be making another soon of the rest of this box and my others if you guys like this one!
