It's a Virtual Time Capsule!

My younger sisters got a subscription for Highlights magazine for Christmas. I was bored a few days ago, so I was flipping through the issue that came in, and I came across an article about making a time capsule. I'm well aware of time capsules, and while they are normally buried in the yard, this one is supposed to be placed in your closet, to be opened in 2020. Bear in mind that this is a publication aimed at younger children, most of whom will still live in the same place in ten years. I, however, won't even be living in the same place ten months from now. With that in mind, and the knowledge that almost everything ever put on the internet is still on it, somewhere, I have decided to make my time capsule here, on my blog.
