RE: Nostalgic

There's also a portuguese word 'saudade' which describes the feeling of longing to a place or a person you can't possibly return to. There's no translation of that word to english. I think it's a pretty sweet word actually, and also sort of sad.

On the discussion of memory, I remember reading that understimulation lead to "memory loss", or rather, the brain sort things out when they become mundane or repetitive. When you do new things, learn new stuff and things like that, you remember it easier.

Funny thing is though, that doing boring and mundane things feels like it takes forever at the moment but you can't recall back to it and the years feel shorter while doing fun stuff makes time fly but makes the years seem longer in retrospect. I find that slightly fascinating.
