The blogging / writing 101 assignments – Day 5: Let social media inspire you

Just try to imagine what that would look like? I visualize a tall building in front of me, high walls and a lot of windows. Imagine you would be able to just rent-a-space for all your past selves. How many past selves to store?

I think I would have 7 past selves, with the need for a lot of space. Especially for past life numero 6 and 7, as they mark the period I returned to the Netherlands, finished my studies and got a job. From that moment onwards there was so much to experience. Life, love, family, friends, career, travels.. all played their part in the past.

Should I want to store past selves? I believe I would if I had the chance, as I strongly believe in learning from the past.

On the other side: what if I torched the rent-a-space? What if I set fire to all the past selves? Would that bring me freedom from the chains of the past, a clean slate to fill with memories?

Or would I sit down and mourn my loss?
