Timeline: this week's T

It was difficult to switch to it, it completely disregards any notion of "privacy".... Facebook's Timeline.  I hated it when it first changed over- I still kind of hate it.  Sometimes it sneakily allows random facts to be shown publicly that you thought you had set on "private" or, even worse, something you deleted ages ago because you never wanted it to be seen or read again.  I'm pretty sure my mom found out I have a tattoo thanks to Timeline (although she has yet to say anything out of common family values of NOT talking about anything and I think she doesn't want to confirm her suspicions) 

But there is another aspect that we really don't take advantage of: looking at the past.  I just spent 30 minutes wandering through my photos since joining in 2006 and remembered so many fun times.  So, since I don't have anything meaningful on my mind tonight, I'm going to throw down some random mems I uncovered:

-At high school graduation, all of the graduates tuck money in their caps and donate it to a charity of choice in a big jar right after we get our diploma.

-Hiking in the sunny spring weather, covering up our cute tank tops with fleece coats because there was snow up in the mountains still!  Later that night, we went back to the dorm room and played Grand Theft Auto: Vice City while drinking Mikes (in the dorm room... you do the age math.... )

-Procrastinator Theater Spring Porno- with prizes!

-U-Dash bus rides to football games- usually after a few drinks at 11 am.  The first game we went to there, it was very sunny and the bus was super full, so we tried to race it with our bikes, then realized we were losing our buzz, so we took the bus at the next stop.

-Phi Sig basement parties... so disgusting, so why did we always end up there every weekend?  (P.S. one of my best friends ended up getting married to one of them!)

-The amazing pineapple that is with me forever ;)

-Marlee's 18th birthday- we smoked Swisher Sweet cigarillos, there were 6 of us girls up above the garage and we went through 4 packs of Swisher Sweets and had to run into town for a 5th.....  considering none of us smoked, I think that's a pretty impressive accomplishment.

-Matching Whale Shirt party:  2 of my best friends and I got matching blue shirts with little whales on them at Old Navy and wore them to a house party.  There are a rediculous amount of photos from that one night because I swear, everyone had a camera.  So we look especially rediculous in our matching shirts in so many photo albums.  Also, we ended up very drunk.

-1, 2, 3 of my best friend's weddings in Billings, Seattle, and Kalispell... and another one in Glacier Park on the way!

So as you can see, I really enjoy Facebook's Timeline every now and then, when I want to reminisce.  I will say that when I look at these old pictures, I get a little upset because there are so many cute outfits that I either gave away, lost, don't fit, or wore out/got spilled on/ripped/etc.  It really pisses me off to see so many cute shirts that will never be mine again.  They were so damn cute!  Where did they all go???
