Yeah I have never been the picture taker. I just have my memories and they're good enough for me. I did just have a child and the pictures have not stopped.

Yeah I'll give you that. My son is 6 and really the only reason I'll bust out my phone for spontaneous pics/vids.

I hardly ever take pictures of anything that isn't truly unique to me. For example, I never understood why people took pictures of sunsets. There are billions of pictures of sunsets, all of which probably look better than the one you took on your phone. Even if you do take the picture, you're probably never going to look at it anyways. The experience of a sunset is more than just the image, and that's all your getting with a picture. If you want to see the image of a beautiful sunset, just look it up google. A picture doesn't preserve the experience.

I second this, I am guilt of taking pictures of rock formations(particularly in the sides of large hills/drops, I think they are way neater than a sunset for some odd reason.

Often. It's best left where it's at, in that moment, that small bit of time that was mine and mine alone. Glorifying it or repeatedly talking about it might seem fun, but it's your moment just know what you know and move on.

It's like the scene in Rounders where Mat Damon recounts meeting and beating the best poker player in the world, did he tell everyone or gloat? No, it was his moment and in that moment he knew where he stood in the world and that's all a person needs, to know for themselves where they stand. The problem really, probably, occurs when they realize this and don't like it.

I don't really care much for pictures. I think physical items are the way to go when memorializing an event. I have nothing special that I carry with me now, but I would like to die with a home fill with collections of things I've picked up along the way.

Why did the chicken cross the road?

To get to the other side, right? Now let's talk about 'the other side.' It's a long standing term for moving on from life to death. So, what if, that old children's joke that's really only funny to small kids and is older than most alive now a days, what if..., what if it's really a joke about suicide? I've drawn exactly one comic in my life and it was a small 5 panel deal invoking this joke about why a chicken might 'cross the road.' I threw it away because it was a modest yet heartbreaking tale of two chickens raised together and one escaping and the other being hauled away on a poultry truck.

So what I'm saying, friendo, is that regardless of what it is, what ever joke it was, just do it. Explore it. See where it takes you and ask yourself how you feel when you get there. It might be fun, but look at it like a little aide trip you might take on a drive home, it's an experience that's yours and share it if you want or don't, but just do it.

Last time when I shared something about my life on Facebook was when I added my high school classmates on Facebook. They shared things that they did, so I shared mine. After a while I stop using Facebook, now I check it only if I have to (eg: I have a homework to share with my classmates because I'm the only one who remember to share the photo of that book that nobody bought).

I can't understand people who care more about their Facebook profile than their real life. For example, if I go in a mountain trip, I take some photos to share with my family and closed friends, but I see other who stop every 5 minutes to make another selfie. Maybe that's their pleasure, but I like to be aware of what I see, not to focus my eyes on my phone.

I am in the same boat as OP. The only social media I am a part of is voat. And its mostly sarcasm and reddit hating. So its pretty easy to have and cherish the little moments.

Although my SO has FB but really hardly uses it for anything other than staying connected with family. So it can be done.
