While creating all of these recent 90s related posts, I’ve been thinking a lot about the differences between growing up then vs. now. The whole idea of having posts come back to haunt you later is terrifying! What kind of stupid shit would my 16 year old self have posted? I for one am thankful the stupidity of my youth lives on only in databases of select people’s memories!
It did make me curious to look back on some old Facebook posts to see what I was up to way back in the day. Brace yourselves, because we are going way way back to:
Looks like I joined Facebook back in 2007, but didn’t really start using it until November of 2008. That year I had 28 friends online and bought my first house. You can tell that I was just not that into social media yet, because now every aspect of the purchase would be online (house hunting, closing, decorating etc.)
My friend count was up to 122.
It went just the way you’d imagine it would.
I was still eating meat. Seems bizarre to me now.
I’ve always been fond of quoting The Office. Gasp, The Office! Guys, remember this show. Oh it was the best! It seems like it was still on the air just this year. They just don’t make ’em like that any more!
Oh, Branford don’t you ever change. What’s that? You don’t plan to?

So aside from not eating meat now, it doesn’t seem like I’ve changed that much. I love how we are so instantly nostalgic now. But it is cool to look back on things even if they were only a few short years ago. Maybe Facebook really is good for something other than wasting time, connecting with friends and stalking people. It’s like a time capsule that you can dig up any old time you want!
Take a look back at your page in ’08 or ’09 and share one of your posts with me!
Stay positive & love your life!

Random fact: I buried a time capsule back when I was 8 or 9. From what I can remember, it contained my resolutions for the year, a friendship bracelet, and a NKOTB trading card. Even with my awesome hand drawn map, I was never able to locate it after burial.
