    Last night I was looking through some old notebooks that my brother and I drew in years ago. It was fun to look back at the old drawings and some of them were funny! Sometimes, I like to look back at drawings and stories I made in the past, and I notice how far I've come over the years.

    How about you, do you like to look back at things you made in the past?

    Not really. In fact, whenever I read over some of my past CF posts I cringe.

    yes. I have a container full of notes that my and my best friend would pass to each other back in high school. I always enjoy looking at them and remember my high school days.

    After getting my childhood stuff back from my father, I got a hold of many of my comics I drew as a child. It's a mixture of nostalgia and cringe since many of my comics back then were often plagiarized from stuff I saw on TV.

    In terms of creativity and drawing ability, I would say that I have come a long way. I may not be a newspaper cartoonist or anything but I'm happy I still have a place that appreciates my work. :)

    Yes, sometimes indeed! Though sometimes I do come across some that have been a helpful reminder.

    I have a binder of old drawings and creative writing, even one drawing of a dragon someone gave to me years ago.

    I have definitely looked back at some of my past artwork, diary entries, posts, past struggles (and how God has walked with me through them all). My diary entries for the most part was kinda..angsty xD. I also feel the same way looking back at my artwork in that I get to see how far I've progressed.

    I just recently did some purging and threw away an entire binder notebook that zips up (it was a very big and roomy notebook) full of various writings, pictures, ect. I guess I'm not that sentimental.

    I do still have my little Lisa Frank diary with its lock and key though. That one is cute and fun to whip out and laugh at once in a blue moon. I have some other things that I've kept, but for the most part I've gotten rid of it. Too much of it reminds me of my childhood and early teen years which were pretty miserable for me being the deeply introverted person that I am. I understand and accept myself now, but when you're young and introverted (a word and its meaning you know nothing about at the time) and acutely aware of how different you are from most people, living life is one very, very anxiety filled challenge every day. ...So no, I'm not very sentimental about my childhood 'stuff and things.'

    I've kept all the little sweet notes my dad would write to me and leave in my room or on my pillow. He worked long hours and would try to compensate being away so much by writing special notes. Eventually I started doing the same thing. These are the kind of things I keep.

    I don't often look back but I have most of my old drawings, paintings, writings, diaries, etc. I guess I am rather sentimental....I need to "purge" some of it honestly. I now understand why so many people, from the past, who kept diaries, never wanted them shown to anyone. I will personally destroy mine before I die, if possible, otherwise I will make sure someone has specific instructions to destroy them.

    Before, people kept private diaries and got upset when anyone read them. Now, people post public diaries on the internet and get upset when no one reads them.

    Sure do! I had a great childhood with loving parents that sacrificed for me and my brother and sister. Great memories but, I also look forward to the future. Have lots of cool plans and things to do and continue doing. In many ways, am living beyond my dreams as akid or young man. No complaints.

    Dear Diary...

    Today I posted a shower thought and Travelers.Soul said, "Oh the irony!". I don't know if this was a shot at me or not since I often post my thoughts on CF Singles forums. People suck. I'm now gonna cut myself... Another slice of carrot cake. This fat piece of fluff could use some comfort food in this depressing day.

    Sometimes I like to look back at older posts I made on forums too. But I avoid most of the ones more than a few years old on other sites that make me think "Why did I ever post that?" Honestly, when I made my oldest forum posts in 2010 and 2011, I wasn't nearly as mature as I thought.

    Sometimes I look at old comics I made as a kid. I used to think they were so funny and part of my "golden" age *partly because so many people at school were hyping them as the best thing ever.. lol*, yet looking back at them they're pretty disorganized.

    Then I look at some ideas for cartoons I made in my early 20s, and am shocked at how offensive they were. I guess you could call them the "edge lord" years.. lol.

    Oh, one thing I've kept that I actually keep on my car keychain is a small metal plate that reads "18 gallons." This was given to my grandfather after he reached the point of having donated 18 gallons of blood in his lifetime. He was a WWII veteran and having been seriously injured himself in Normandy (he was awarded a Purple Heart) from an enemy landmine, he always felt very strongly about regularly giving blood. He may have given plasma, too. ...If it was something that could help, encourage, and lead people into a positive direction, he was the first in line to offer his assistance. This was the kind of man he was.

    That metal plate is a reminder to me.
