Why I Like Posting Family Movies And Past Photos From Childhood
FOR THE MEMORIES!
I don’t understand why people and the norm find all my posts creepy — whether it’s posting a selfie or a photo from recent days or photos from my past or home movies from my past!
I remember how I acted as a kid and the funniest moments that really do make people laugh! Hey — I showed them in high school during study hall and all the class was cracking up with how my Dad and I played off one another when I was age 5! You should have heard the laughs! Oh-wait — they were laughing at me not with me! Do I even care! I like making people laugh!
I post to remember things— How my parents and grandparents and friends looked and sounded! How my cat Roy looked and acted as a little kitten! It’s like travelling back! When people pass away or move away and you never see them again you can go back and re-live those moments! Like those I have with my grandparents — although they always ended up fighting and that’s how they usually were when they were alive and well!
I post to remember special times in my life that others shared with me such as assemblies in school! My graduations for instance!
A lot of people post the same way I do — and I see comments they get- They don’t get thrown down for posting past stuff or videos! They always get “Wow! I love these! More! Brings back so many good times!” but when I do it it’s “boring” or weird or creepy according to the norm — then why even look or watch! Well- wait- I was a loner mostly — I just hung out with my dad — No wonder people find that stuff boring! Well then if you find my stuff boring then that’s fine- I post for the MEMORIES! And to share those memories with those who want to remember them!
I also post to recall the very cheap clothing I had as a kid — that my parents waited until I outgrew until they bought me a new several shirts which had to last into all of middle school and were all from a neighbor’s fleamarket left over sale! For example- all the striped colored shirts I had to wear from 2nd grade until the end of 5th! It was like Mister Rogers every summer! What type of several year old striped shirt will Mark wear today!
