Sometimes, I forget it's 2014 even though I write it down every time I post a new Event Log. The beginning of the year always seems to have that effect on people. I still remember, as a kid, thinking to myself, "Man, I can't believe it's the year 2000." That was 14 years ago. Time sure does fly.
I do think kids have it easier these days. It almost takes no effort to leave a digital trace with Facebook and social networking. I would've killed to see what I thought ten years ago. I would be fourteen then, and the only thing I remember was watching Neon Genesis Evangelion. It was freshman year and I'm sure there were all sorts of funny moments that are forever lost because my memory ain't what it used to be. One of the perks of getting older is laughing at your dumbass younger self.
