Right now, it seems like the memories you make in high school will last forever. But unfortunately, eventually some inside jokes, insane crushes, and favourite songs will fall by the wayside. In order to remember what life is like right now, borrow an idea from elementary schools in the 50s and make a time capsule.
This can be something you do with a group of best friends, or something you do alone as a self-reflective exercise. When you’re done, print it out and put it somewhere safe, with a label indicating when you’re supposed to open it. You can use milestones, like an important birthday or graduation, or just a span of time. Short-term time capsules are great if you’re working on a big project or starting a big year (for example, make one before you go on a big trip, head to camp for the summer, or begin Grade 12.) Longer-term time capsules will be great memory-holders. Make one at the beginning of high school to open when you graduate, or make one to open in five years. You’ll be surprised how much has changed, and how glad you are to remember the silliest things. Here’s our Time Capsule guide, remember to add your own questions, too! If you’re making your time capsule with a group of friends, we also suggest writing out 10 questions and swapping so everyone answers something different. Read ‘em out loud, then seal ‘em forever!
