Have you ever written down a list of song lines/lyrics that stayed with you for ever and ever? Personally, there’s a really long list. One that keeps me laughing is “this will go down on your permanent record”. I believe I first heard that in a Violent Femmes song. However, I believe many other songs have said similar. I also know that films and television shows have alluded to such an idea.
But, let’s think about this. What permanent record? Honestly, there is no such thing as a permanent record. No one really cares what you did in High School. I’m not too sure those things really follow you. Not much does. Unless, you have a criminal record. That is something different. But this wild idea that little marks from long ago should have an everlasting effect is a bit silly.

Unfortunately, ‘permanent record’ often consists of bits you would rather forget, but which follow you around forever.
That is very true. And sad. And disturbing. But knowing it so, perhaps liberating in an odd way.
Hope you’re doing well!

Ahh. For shame… have a wonderful day ahead

The internet is your permanent record. Nothing on it every truly goes away and it is searchable if you have an idea of what you want to look for. Politicians still haven’t figured this out.
That is true. Let’s see what happens with this Twitter edit button…
