the life of zooey who happens to be Bipolar 2

time capsule

Time Hop is an application which looks look at social transactions on the web over the years. This is a personal time screen-only_framedcapsule to share with others showing the utter greatness of your life. I see these visits to the past on my Facebook timelines full of cute kiddos, funny moments and sentimental times. Doggies, kitties, proposals and engagements put a smile on my face remembering them.  It seemed sorta cool so I downloaded it.

Each day, Time Hop collected these transactions and sent a notice to my phone. The happy dinosaur said, “Look at your past! Repost your own Throwback Thursday any day of the week!”  Too bad I can’t limit these journeys to few years back.

My notices were full of pictures and tweets from as far back as 10 years ago. Here I was, asking for that shit. Turns out, most of these social exchanges show an unhappy me, engaging in activities to alleviate my crappy marriage and constant untreated biopolar 2 existence. The look in my eyes back then didn’t do much for my daily view of life now. Why would I share this stuff again?  What would I post to with it on Facebook? “Hey! Look how far I’ve come! See my inability to do something about my situation for YEARS!?

After a week of Time Hop, I uninstalled it. Some time capsules and dinosaurs just need to remain buried for the present. Mischief managed. Not all Apps are worth it.
