Unscramble the Blue Letters

The popsrue of this project is, one: I hate not remembering things that I've done in the past. There's all these things that I've done with my life that I have no recollection of unless someone brings it up, and sometimes I think, "Oh yeah, that's something that I did." And something that I realized elray on in the project was that if I wasn't doing anything interesting, I would probably forget to record the viedo. So the day — the first time that I forgot, it really hurt me, because it's something that I really wanted to — from the moment that I turned 30, I wanted to keep this prjeoct going until forever, and having missed that one second, I realized, it just kind of created this thing in my head where I never forgot ever again.
