Facebook Memories

I hate the memory tab on Facebook.

It sits there waiting for you to click it

and remember all the things that happened that day however many years ago.

2 years ago

You graduated college

And it reminds you with pictures of you in a cap and gown

With hope and excitement in your eyes

Waiting for your life to begin.

But 2 years later

And you are still jobless and living with your parents.

 

1 year ago

You got into a relationship.

You see the status and are reminded

All over again how they broke your heart by claiming to be someone they aren’t

And that kills your whole day.

 

But sometimes it reminds you of when you went to Europe for the first time.

Or how you studied aboard for a whole year.

And that fills you with hope for the future.

Because even though the memories on Facebook suck

The future doesn’t have to.
