Some time ago, maybe 5 weeks or so, I don't remember well, I had the weirdest dream.
There, I was living a normal day in my life (I'm not entering into details), but the year was 2012, then suddenly I woke up.
I got a very weird feeling. I felt like I had traveled 7 years in the future, because at that instant, I barely remembered anything after that year, just had memories before.
Slowly, my memories came back that morning. It was raining, I was alone at home, and it was Saturday, so I turned on my PC and went to play Mario Kart Wii for some minutes.
Then I read on the tittle Screen: "Nintendo, 2008" and immediately thought: "Whoa, it was 11 years already!, I feel like it has been released just on past year!"
Then, a punch of nostalgia hit me very hard. I started to think from many memories from that year, with family, friends, even my pets, my previous home, and a large list that no one would care for anyway, but the point is that it felt like "Man, I really feel it just has happened, but 11 long years have passed since then..."
I don't know for you, but I'm one of those people who place themselves in time based on which year a game was released, so for example, to me, Mario Kart Wii (2008) and the first 3DS (2011) represent both of the years when something truly important has happened in my life.
It blows my mind how many time has passed since then, and it was so fast... makes me think that this memory of me, writing this lines, will be at some day a memory of my old dying self on a bed, filled with nostalgia and sadly asking himself of all the things he didn't do in it's youth when there was time.
Have you ever experienced something like this before?
