I found my collection of bookmarks from middle and high school when visiting my parents' house this weekend! I thought I'd lost or accidentally thrown these out! But they were sitting in a shoe box in my room this entire time. Oh man, I love this collection. I think I started it back in 4th or 5th grade. I tend to be kind of sentimental about the past, so I hang onto stuff like this.

I did notice something interesting, too... Back in middle school there was an annual list of recommended books for reading. I used to try and read every book on the list (it was about 20-30 books). And if I remember right, I'd highlight each book I finished on the bookmark. Well, I found the bookmarks for 1996-1997, 1997-1998, and 1998-1999. The first too bookmarks were highlighted entirely. The last one either only had a handful highlighted or wasn't highlighted at all, I forget.

What happened in 1998-1999? I started using the Internet habitually. So either there's a cause and effect relationship there, or I just didn't highlight. But knowing how meticulous I am, I'm pretty sure I would've highlighted. It's kind of a sobering thought, looking back.

And this is why I like keeping stuff like that around.
