An anonymous collection of the emails, texts, and messages we've chosen to save. Although we don't keep boxes of old letters stored away in our closets, we do hold onto the meaningful words sent to us from friends and family. The downside, something we all seem to be very aware of, is that these messages could be erased with the click of a mouse or press of a button. The aim of this project is to gather together the humorous, profound, and treasured messages we all, at one point or another, have chosen to keep. Contribute! Send in something you'd be upset to lose if you dropped your phone in the toilet or your computer crashed or you deleted it in a fit of sadness/rage/optimism.

Subject: ??? “Babycakes,
I wasn’t irritated at all, and for your information, missy, I did not start to fall asleep during the conversation. Jerkwad. I was glad you called, because I was starting to feel lonesome.
As for a time for conversation, I’m available at any time at around 5 or 6. I’ll probably be in the cafe during those times, working on homework and whatnot. I really want to know the things that you have to say, so say them regardless of whether or not I would want to hear them, if that makes sense.
Sorry that I was so sleepy on the phone.
I know it’s necessary, but I don’t like the sentence: “We should probably have a real conversation about all this sometime soon.” It just makes me a little nervous.
I also apologize for the brevity on my message. I have class soon, and I don’t think that I have all of the homework done. Oh well. The classes are going to be really annoying.
I love you. Have a good day if I don’t talk to you.

Subject: The Most Important Vote Ever “The real reason Sacagawea should be disregarded [as the name for your new cat] is that the kitty cannot travel for shit. You should hear her screams when she is in the car…If the real Sacagawea was like that, Lewis & Clark would have done a lot less exploring and a lot more whispering “it’s ok, don’t cry” and bribing her with Sacagawea Snacks.
