I'd say I'm a person who "lives in the past" - when making decisions in the present or plans for the future, I'm doing so considering how I'll look back on them afterwards. The present is chaotic, and perception is often clouded by prejudice, but the past is lucid, with a gentle filter of warm nostalgia. It seems to me that the present I create and document will end up like a novella of memories - some pleasant, some not as much - that I, admittedly, can use as a crutch during tougher times; yet there are moments where I look at my past and can only feel layers, upon layers.
