"Today, after a 72 hour shift at the fire station, a woman ran up to me at the grocery store and gave me a hug. When I tensed up, she realized I didn’t recognize her. She let go with tears of joy in her eyes and the most sincere smile and said, “On 9-11-2001, you carried me out of the World Trade Center.”

People say Tumblr is a waste of time. I disagree. In 20 years, I'm going to be able to sit down with my husband, type in my old Tumblr URL and say, "Baby, this is who I was at 18. It's all the things that made me laugh, smile and cry. It's the recipes I wanted to try, the quotes that I abided by and believed in. It's all of the new things that I wanted to do someday. It's the struggles I made it through. It's the hurricane of 2011 and my letter to you about how I wish you were there. This is ME." So Tumblr? Not a waste of time. It's an investment in a memory. Because, tell me: Do you think you're going to remember all of the little things that make you tick now, then? You won't, I promise...But me? I will.
