When spring decided (in my mind) to finally show itself this past weekend, Holiday driving was met with the car windows being rolled down and flying hands thrown out of them. It feels like this winter has dragged on so long that I couldn’t remember summer, how can you forget summer?! I’ve been so sick of our goofy cold weather that I vowed that this summer would be a summer to remember!

From this exclamation, I started to plot out what adventures were to be had this year and then I tried reminiscing about last summer…I found, I had no clear memories of last summer! I remembered a birthday here, a BBQ there or some boxes being moved into a new apartment. I had remembered all the big stuff, but had trouble remembering all those moments in-between. I mean it was just last year, it’s not like it was a life time ago. As the days, weeks, months and years pass by memories bunch up together and get all fuzzy.

A guy by the name of Cesar Kuriyama has managed to capture those fleeting fuzzy moments in life through his successfully funded kickstarter app called “One Second Everyday” or 1SE. Capturing just one second each day of his life he’s able to remember the tragic, funny and beautiful moments we all forget. hotel comparison He forces himself through these compiled second records of his life to evaluate himself and how he approaches each day.

I love this idea of mini records of just seconds in one’s life. Although there are definitely some bugs and fine tuning that still need to go into this app it allows anyone to record, keep and compile those seconds in life we tend to forget.

I don’t think you have to be some kind of amazing seven wonders of the world type of adventurer to get good use of this app. I’m a believer of those small every day moments being just as wonderful as those epic life changing, aww inspiring moments in life. It’s all a matter of how you look at your life and what stories you make out of those forgettable seconds in life.
