I can’t remember my first concert

Facebook is a social media platform for which many of us can have a love/hate relationship.  Many of us have seen or heard of the nefarious teenage girl research. The platform is really not great for body image empowerment.  Also, a lot of misinformation has made its way through social networks. Yet, it can be a good way to way to stay in touch with family members and junior high school friends.

Something else that Facebook does is that it brings on a sense of nostalgia if you are in certain facebook groups. For example, the generation X group is quite active and many posts pictures of themselves from twenty years comparing to today. It’s fun to see who has aged well and what styles were actually long-lasting.

Something else that is quite prevalent is that post people upload of what was their first concert. Or even their first album. Sadly, I can’t remember either. No matter how much I try to dig deep into myself and rummage through my memories, I don’t remember. I can’t even imagine it. I know that as a little kid I had a Disney song record collection. However, I don’t think that counts.

I usually have a great memory. So it must be that these two firsts were just not that impressionable. If I press myself, it might very well be that my first concert was that of some country western singer. But at this point I think it might not matter that much. The take home for me was that these things that may be considered some important developmental event bypasses me. They were not part of my identity development nor part of what makes a great growing-up memory.
