Uncovered Gems

VaultI recently got a few boxes out of storage and uncovered some very cool relics from my past. I hadn't seen these boxes in almost a decade and among my old university essays were various notes and observations.

Back in 1991, for example, I documented random thoughts in a wordperfect file I called "My Reflections". The date of printing reads June 4th, 1991 and there's some very interesting things in there. It is, for all intents and purposes, a blog that wasn't written for public consumption.

I also uncovered a journal of thoughts from May 10, 1996 through May 29, 1997 complete with a time stamp in a format eerily similar to this one. This year long experiment contains explicit detail and truly conveys my thoughts on events of the time.

Lastly but not leastly there is a hand written booklet of lists. These lists are undated, but judging from the content were probably from 1989-1990. I'll share bits and pieces from all three documents starting with this list of my top ten video games at the time.

  1. RBI Baseball
  2. Blades of Steel
  3. Super Mario Bros 3
  4. Ice Hockey
  5. Sprint
  6. Tetris
  7. Punch Out
  8. Zelda
  9. Wonderboy
  10. Motocross Maniacs
