  • I simultaneously love and hate looking through old photo albums.

    When I gaze through the seemingly endless pages of photos from my childhood all of the photos are of happy memories, to a certain extent, if one would fixate on any photo they would find out that not everything is not as picture perfect as it might seem.

    For example, simply seeing a photo of my dad's old car can bring up so many memories, all joyful and in good content, but it also unfortunately, gives me a feeling of nostalgia; wishing things were the way they previously were.
