Regretting selling my old stuff

I do! I regret it. I have been a fool. I let my friends and family and my own mind trick me in cleaning up. To throw it out, to sell it. That if I have a router, that I don't need to store the other one for whatever reason.

Sure, I have a few bits and pieces lying around, but nothing from 10, 20, 30 years ago.
And I hit myself in the face for it now. UGH, idiot!

I would love to have my first computer, my first game console. My first bits and pieces that are now iconic hardware. They would look so good on a shelf.

To guarantee being able to upgrade to the next iPhone, I sold my iPhone 4 to my family members. And I regret it. I wish I still had it - right here. To look at. Or as a back-up behind the scenes camera.

I don't know how to get this stuff back, and I feel it's just not the same if I would buy something like it just to have. It wasn't mine then.

Last year I already decided that I will throw out what is worth throwing out. But that I won't do hand me downs to friends and family anymore. I want to keep it.

Does anybody have a time machine?

I'd give you my time machine but I blew it up.. oops

On the topic of that though, I have the same feeling regarding some stuff I've done as well. Most of it is online which isn't as 'big' but still annoying.

For example, I wish I hadn't deleted my first ever emails from Mojira marking when I started there, or having thrown away my train ticket for my first day at college (that one is real life so extra points for that ig)
