What do you do when you're feeling nostalgic?

Asked by vampmoore (445points) July 18th, 2010

These last couple days I’ve been feeling really nostalgic, thinking about games I used to play when I was a kid, places I used to go, things I thought were the height of “cool”, and music I used to listen to. So I got on the internet and started looking this stuff up. I came across the boy band *Nsync (who I was practically obsessed with in my preteen and early teenage years), and started listening to all their old songs. Made me feel all warm and bubbly inside.

So I was wondering what you’d do if you started having flash backs of your younger, more innocent times? (or wild, crazy, illegal partying times?)

I enjoy thinking about good times in the past, but I don’t usually do anything special.

I love searching YouTube for old TV intros, songs from my youth, even old TV ads. They really do feed my nostalgia for the seventies, when I was a mere lad.

I like looking through my old photo albums and listening to my CDs. I still have all of the CDs I had as a teenager and even some cassette tapes from when I was younger.

When I’m feeling nostalgic, I call an old friend or family member, and if he or she is available, treat for lunch or dinner. I find it both fun and cathartic to reminisce with people who share my past.

I don’t feel nostalgic very often, I am a very much live in the present type.
About the only thing I ever feel nostalgic about is in the fall when school starts, reminds of those precious days when my daughter ( now almost 23 ) was a little girl.

I miss being a mommy!

I enjoy the brief video playing in my head or the flashback. Then I return to the present.

@Symbeline I love Chrono Trigger. I pull out the game and play it every now and then.

I’m playing the DS version currently. I owned both the Snes original and the PS port, but lost those years ago.
Anyway yeah, this game is the apex of awesome.

I’ll go on YouTube and look up pop culture stuff from my childhood. Old episodes of Match Game are a particular favourite. I understood some of the double entendres as a child, but now know who was of what proclivity in those days, it makes watching those old shows funnier now!

I open my memoir program and add as much as I can remember, sometime the memories feed each other and I get a lot of work done.
