Life undocumented

I’m very conscious of the fact that much of my time and activities since moving to NYC have gone undocumented on this weblog. I haven’t even taken a single photo of my surroundings. I don’t honestly know how any New Yorker has the time (or energy) to keep a weblog.

I’m living life, so that’s good, right? That’s the change I wanted to make after spending 10 years in the rural Midwest. But I’m just worried that I’m going to look back someday and wish that I had taken a few extra minutes here and there to jot down my initial impressions of the city, the subway, etc, so I can remember what I was like before I inevitably become a horribly jaded urbanite.

Your instincts are right… get a record of your thoughts and experiences now, you’ll be glad you did.

A digital camera, and the blog, and maybe set some time aside for a journal or something. I know, time is precious, but you’ve probably taken the first step by admitting thats what you want to do.
