Look at this photograph, everytime I do it makes me laugh

Since my hard drive is not compatible with Barney, I have to transfer files from thumb drive to the hard drive via my desktop. My hard drive is like a storage room, really. I have pictures, documents, movies, TV shows, games, you name it. I was transferring some downloaded stuff from Barney to the hard drive. Can’t help but realise the amount of pictures I have. Different folders for different occasions. From holidays, to random days, to surprise birthdays, to barbeques and bowling trips. I honestly do not know how many pictures I have in total.

There are some folders where I visited today. Cos it’s been a long time since I looked through them. You know, to see how different things were back then. Like being in DPA. And then how different we all looked. Rachel still had her bangs and straight hair! Then HSS AGM. My hair was long by then. I look at the pictures and I feel hot. HAHA. My hair was looong. TPDE pictures. Commbased period. After finale training. Camwhoring during breaks. using the mirrors. LOL.

There were photographs I didn’t really need anymore. I told myself that I could trash everything if I wanted to. I mean, it’s true. Just highlight, press delete, and you’re done. It’s that simple. The thing is, what difference would it make if you clicked/pressed that delete button when the memories itself are etched in your head. No doubt you don’t have to look at the photographs; but the captured memories- the photographs- still appear when you close your eyes.

So I didn’t press the delete button. I look at it as a reflection of one of the many memorable events that happened in my life thus far. Many more to come, I know. But this is enough for now. At least, it’s all I can take. As quoted from Social Psychology by David G. Myers, “We are, under most circumstances, amazingly resilient”.

Look at this photograph
Every time I do it makes me laugh
How did our eyes get so red?
And what the hell is on Joey’s head?

This is where I grew up
I think the present owner fixed it up
I never knew we ever went without
The second floor is hard for sneakin’ out

This is where I went to school
Most of the time had better things to do
Criminal record says I broke in twice
I must’ve done it half a dozen times

I wonder if it’s too late
Should I go back and try to graduate
Life’s better now than it was back then
If I was them, I wouldn’t let me in

Every memory of looking out the back door
I had the photo album spread out on my bedroom floor
It’s hard to say
It’s time to say it
Goodbye, Goodbye
Every memory of walking out the front door
I found the photo of the friend that I was looking for

It’s hard to say
It’s time to say it
Goodbye, Goodbye

Remember the old arcade
Blew every dollar that we ever made
The cops hated us hangin’ out
They say somebody went and burned it down

We used to listen to the radio
And sing along with every song we’d know
We said someday we’d find out how it feels
To sing to more than just the steering wheel

Kim’s the first girl I kissed
I was so nervous that I nearly missed
She’s had a couple of kids since then
I haven’t seen her since God knows when

Every memory of looking out the back door
I had the photo album spread out on my bedroom floor
It’s hard to say
It’s time to say it
Goodbye, Goodbye

I miss that town
I miss their faces
You can’t erase
You can’t replace it
I miss it now
I can’t believe it
So hard to stay
Too hard to leave it
If I could relive those days
I know the one thing that would never change

Look at this photograph
Every time I do it makes me laugh
Every time I do it makes me
