You look backwards to figure out the future.  
The more people change, the more they stay the same.

...I'm frightened to read my older diary entries, because I don't want to see how similar I still am to my past self. Or, worse, I don't want to see how much I've changed.

I've spent the past half hour or so reading a friend's high-school journal entries. It's weird, because I didn't really know this person then. But it's so strange, reading about people I knew then and knowing they aren't close anymore. It's odd realizing how my memory of people, places, things don't match his.

Weird weird weird. Now I feel cryptic and nostalgic.

Hehe...I know the feeling all too well....all too well x_x
Which is kinda why I do my journal the way I do.

Seems very mundane how I detail every seemingly boring piece of my routines...but hey...years from now I can look back and see what I was up to ^^;

Albeit I'll have to go through the process what you're doing now...
How much have I changed or not changed? O.o;

Oh yeah...forgot to add =p
Change may be scary...but not all change is bad you know?

Besides...it's pretty much the memories you have noted down that necessarily won't escape you should you happen to forget it or it is but a faint flicker in your mind ^^

Hopefully that ramble helps you in any way? o.o;;;

I just read this in Damien's LJ (I'm procrastinating homework). It's scary to change, but it's exciting too. I've changed a lot in some ways, but in others I haven't changed at all. If nothing ever changed, life would be boring. But then there are those things we don't want to change. -shrug- I'm more so rambling. I just know I've changed a helluva lot since high school, but I'm glad. They've been changes for the better, ya know. I've sure changed DRASTICALLY since I last hung out with you. Oh, the old days! Haha, If you're worried about not changing, we can rehash some good ol' Baldwin memoires. Oh man!

Did I ever tell you there's this girl that I used to coach at my gym, and she reminds me so much of you back when I knew you. It's crazy! Ok, I'm done now.
