As part of my Day Zero Project, I will be answering the 50 Questions That Free Your Mind. For each of these, I will blog an answer and then it will be linked here as well. Some of these will have longer responses, some will be extremely short. But by the end of the Day Zero Project, I will have answered all of these.
No. 26: Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones?
I can’t believe it’s been a couple of months since I last did one of these.
But, I have to be honest, I’m firmly convinced I won’t be finishing my Day Zero Project — for several reasons. But the biggest is the money factor. Some of the things I put on that list require money and with not having any, I won’t finish. That being said, I am going to still try my hardest and see how close I can get.
So back to the 50 Questions posts…
This question, like many of the others, is simply stupid. I understand what these questions are supposed to do. But it seems like they are worded way too crazy like.
In this position, I’m not sure what I would choose.
Old memories are good and bad. I love memories of family and things like that. But I would gladly erase memories of high school. I hated it back then. It was probably the worst overall time of my life. College was different. I loved it. So losing those memories would truly suck.
Still, are old memories that big?
Would you want to go through the rest of your life without being able to create new memories?
That’s debatable. I still consider myself in a time in life when making memories is something special. Especially as somebody who truly believes in photography. Photographs are major memory items, so what happens to all the photos I’ve taken before and to those I take in the future?
Tough one, eh?
In the end, I probably would keep the old memories. I think the family things — of those who have gone before us and other things — would be too tough to give up. Though I would hate the thought of not being able to make new memories, in the end I truly wouldn’t know, would I? I’d still have memories, they would just be older.
Thankfully, I don’t have to make this choice though.
I really should have looked closer at these questions before I committed to doing them. Some of the future ones are even more crazy or personal. With the personal ones, I’ll be tip-toeing around them a little. I’ll do my best to continue these in an honest way, but wow are some of them a bit nuts!
