Scrapbooking Yourself as a Girl, Youth, and Your College Days


Now that you grasp the importance of scrapbooking yourself and see how it can add value to your life, you've decided to go ahead and do it.

The next question would be, "What's there to scrapbook about me? I don't have a fabulous or most interesting life like Rosanne. I didn't live my life as a grand adventure like Judy."

If you really didn't, then by all means scrapbook your life as one big adventure.

It's a matter of looking for interesting angles under all the trapped layers of self-inhibiting thoughts.

There's in fact too many themes you can scrapbook about yourself to cover in one short article like this.

So for starters, here's some tips and prompts as you scrapbook about your long ago memories as a sweet, young girl or a quiet, bookish and most serious student.

Let's go right into it!

Days as a Little Girl

"There is a garden in every childhood, an enchanted place where colors are brighter, the air softer, and the morning more fragrant than ever again."
- Elizabeth Lawrence

You may have vivid recollections of your days as a young girl. Or you may just have leftover bits and pieces of vague memories of those days.

Nevertheless, it's an important part of your growing up phase and it's the foundation you built upon as you grew into the adult you are today.

So spend an afternoon or a day recalling your most lingering memories of that bygone era...

  • What's your most memorable experience as a girl?

  • Who were your role modes, heroes, mentors or favorite persons? Why?

  • What were your dreams then? Did any of your dreams come true for you?

  • What's the best advice or words of wisdom someone gifted to you?

  • What were you most proud of? Was it because of a person, thing or event?

  • What's your favorite memories of yourself as a girl? What's your outstanding traits that others remember you for?

  • Did you overcome any troubling or awkward habits? How did you get rid of them? How about embarrassing then but funny now moments?

  • Did you wish that you could transform into an adult overnight? What made you want to turn into an adult so quickly?

  • What's your favorite or best subjects at school? Did your interest make you excel in that particular subject?

  • What's your hobbies? How far did you go with your hobby? Did you carry on with them into adulthood?

  • What's the fads of your time? What's your type of music, movies, books, etc? Did you save really hard for something that you truly wanted then? Did you finally manage to get what you wanted?

  • Were you a vivacious leader or were you contented being a loyal follower? Was being in a group or team extremely important to you? Why?

  • Did you ever experience puppy love? What happened to this love? What's your views on the topic of love then?

  • How's your parents' marriage? How did their relationship color the way you handle your own relationships now?

    Beauty of Youth and College Days

    "Youth is not a time of life; it is a state of mind; it is not a matter of rosy cheeks, red lips and supple knees; it is a matter of the will, quality of the imagination, vigor of the emotions; it is the freshness of the deep springs of life."
    - Samuel Ullman

    Many of us started to feel pretty grown up and liberated the moment we hit 18. Suddenly, the time between 18 and 24 slipped away so fast and before you knew it, the realization hit you that youth is neither forever nor eternal. And you swallowed a little and faced the truth, that there's another bout of growing up to deal with in adulthood.

    Some of your most liberating, bittersweet, and confusing experiences might have taken place during your youthful days.

    So get out your scrapbooking supplies and let's scrapbook them!

  • What's your favorite subjects, teacher, and activities at school? Favorite hangouts? Any teacher or classmate from hell?

  • What's the challenges you faced in college? What's your best memories then?

  • Did you live on or off campus? How's campus life like for you?

  • Did you move out of your parents' home? Whom did you move in with? And how's life living without your family? How did you cope?

  • Did you meet your sweetheart, partner/spouse then? What did you normally do on dates? What's your thoughts about relationships then?

  • Did you feel that your life revolved around your friends then? Who's your buddies and what happened to those friendships? What have you learned about friendship?

  • What's your studying habits like? Food you ate, music you listened to, things you did to help you de-stress?

  • What's your dressing style like? Any horrifying fashion mistakes that look hilarious now?

  • Did you take on part-time jobs during those days? What interesting lessons did you learn about being an employee?

  • If you chose not to attend college, why? How did this decision impact your life? What jobs did you take on thereafter? How's your attitude being a young working adult? What's your job duties?

  • How did you see yourself then? What traits would you use to describe yourself? How did you want others to see you as?

  • What opportunities did you miss? Any regrets? Were there things you wished you could change? How did you move on?

  • What life-changing events did you go through? What's the biggest lessons you've learned and how these lessons changed your life?

  • Did your childhood dreams evolve into something entirely different? What's your dreams at this stage? What actions did you take to accomplish them? Are you still holding onto these dreams now?

    Not only will these scrapbook themes write out the early phases of your life story, these scrapbook pages will fill you up with a sense of certainty. The pages will remind you that you have more living to do, and leave behind a legacy of who you are to your loved ones and your future generations.

    Isn't this similar to publishing your own personal triumphs, tears and joy to others who wants to know more about you?
