Facebook has a new feature that looks back on past statuses. While it's a little scary this exists (after all, I have enough record of what I was thinking years ago here), it's nevertheless fascinating — and in my case at least, it's going to get really interesting once another year or two passes.
(Side note: When you click on the status sidebar, you can see the whole comment thread, and in turn who has since defriended you and comments/friends you forgot about.)
Here are some of the more, I won't say compelling, but typical, statuses from years past. Enjoy.
|From Sept. 12, 2009. You can see how my Best Buy mood had changed in two days. And I'm not sure why I ever bothered posting when I lost a flag football game. Winning was the news.|
|On 9/9/09, President Obama gave a major speech on health care. It came at a difficult time for him, and my feed was pretty much a chorus of my liberal friends spelling the end of the world and all but calling for a new election. Though my friend list was growing more diverse and I was laying off on political statuses a bit, I still felt I had to say this. Some people were appreciative. It marked the last time a liberal friend of mine ever called for Obama's head.|
|From Aug. 29, 2009, the mother of all predictions. Also, something about a dryer.|
|From Sept. 6. I think it speaks for itself on both counts.|
|From Sept. 13: Workplace safety cannot be overstressed.|
