2010 - 2019

A decade ends and a new one starts and with that comes some facts :

  • I'm not a robot and I can't remember everything I've done during all these years
  • Writing down will probably help me to revisit things I've done
  • I want to leave something that my daughter will eventually read one day

That's a reason why I started last month to keep a logbook inspired by Austin Kleon's articles.

It's not really a diary but really just a book where I write down little facts that happens every day divided this way : what / when / who. Hopefully, I will have 10 of these little books to be able to have a full review of the next decade. Appointment scheduled for the 1st january 2030.

For the past decade, I tried to figure out things that I've done and it took me some time to gather all the details. I'm lucky to have taken a lot of pictures that allows me to flick through all these years.
