Friday Inspiration: Why I Hate TimeHop

One of my least favorite applications is TimeHop. On the surface, remembering what you did 1,2,3,4 years ago should be fun! 

Unfortunately, most TimeHop screenshots I have seen on Facebook and Instagram are accompanied by a sappy message about "what a long time it has been that can never be again". I'm going to lay some hard truth down about why this is so dangerous.

For 99% of the time, the people in that photo are alive, healthy, and accessible.

Think about how lucky that is.

I guess I am a bit grim because I think of the people in my life who I can't reach again. People separated by more than a Skype login. 

Instead of looking back to "Halloween rager 2011", why not call up or text your friends? Make new memories?
