Memories

I have always been jealous of others that are able to be disciplined enough to keep a journal and be consistent with it. I have tried so many different times to start one, only to stop in a week or two. I tried a variety of ways to make this happen, including pen and paper,  typing, using cool apps to do it, but nothing seems to work for me. I struggle with this because, I feel like I am at a point in my life where I want to be more reflective as there are some very significant things happening right now and I want to be able to look back on them and see what my thoughts were.

A few weeks ago, I came across a web app called Loccit, that takes a different approach on journaling. When I watched their video on how it works, I started to realize that they may be on to something. Their whole premise is to take the apps that you use on an every day basis to share what is going on in your life and bundle them into one to create your own journal. Now, there are other similar services out there that do this, but this one just seemed like it was interesting to try.

Planning makes life easy. In fact, a  lot of us plan things ahead using the best technique we know or works for us. So planning isn’t the problem. General laziness and short attention spans are some some of few reasons things that were planned in advance do not get done. But it is an undeniable fact that we move forward at least a bit more with a plan, than when we don’t have one in the first place.

There’s no dearth of apps and techniques to plan things in advance. One among them is MoreDays that plans to mesmerize with the sheer beauty of the web app. Moredays is a completely new way of planning and recording life that cross the borders of standard planning and turns paper calendar into an electronic/digital calendar. Time to take it for a spin!

We get to experience moments of joy, sorrow, and success multiple times in our life. Most of them are recorded as photos, videos, or written words to cherish them forever. But how coherent are they? Nine times out of ten, there isn’t a common thread connecting all your memories together. Photos are awesome but they don’t say it all. You create an online journal, but it’s too much of a chore.

Sometimes it’s not enough to just capture important moments in life, but also present them all in a meaningful way. Timelines are the easy way out. A timeline puts things into perspective and give you a bigger and better picture of what went down (in some cases, what’s going to come). timekiwi helps people to create digital timelines. Time to take it for a spin!

Everyone has someone special to remember in their lives. There are probably a ton of fond memories, pictures and videos that have captured them for eternity.

Scrapbooks are an age old tradition of compiling images, notes, letters and other personally important material for a nostalgic journey years later.
