The Learn Something New Every Day prompt for 9/27/06 was “Something I shouldn’t forget….” Talk about a perfect prompt as my journal is completely empty for that day! I honestly have no memory of the day because I didn’t write anything down. My guess is that I was busy packing for my trip and writing lesson plans since I was leaving for LA the next day directly from school. But, I didn’t take the time to write it down, so I don’t know for sure. I have no memory of what I was feeling or thinking, because I didn’t take two seconds to jot down a sentence or two in my journal. This is such a valuable lesson! So many of us put off journaling, but what happens when you go back a month or year or THREE years later? Memories fade if we don’t record them in some form in the here and now. I challenge you all to start keeping a journal or blog or daily Facebook/Twitter update. Anything to record your memories so that they aren’t lost forever. Something I shouldn’t forget…write it down!
Exercise Update: Sadly…nothing to report.
