Digitized Diaries 1979-2022: A Reflection

February 3, 2023 – Constantia Oomen

After 54 days of hard work, I have successfully digitized all 350 of my diaries and got rid of over 100 kilograms of paper by donating them to the wheelie bin for the Friday trash pickup in Davis (hurray!). However, I kept the early childhood and high school diaries, and special diaries, such as poem diaries. Spanning from December 1, 2022 to January 23, 2023, on most of the days I worked for an average of six to eight hours a day, capturing images of each diary page, and any loose or semi-loose items that were in my diaries, with my iPhone14ProMax. The process was both challenging and cathartic as I alternated between reliving happy and painful memories while doing so.

I was able to rediscover my old self, who was both joyful and depressed (I was kind of surprised to discover this very happy side of me of the past), and saw my life flash before my eyes as I imagine people do on their deathbed or shortly afterwards. My diaries revealed the most frequent themes in my life, the majority of which revolved around relationships, romantic and consummated and unrequited. Despite the depth of content of the diaries (one diary literally weighing over one kilo by the way), my diaries provide great entertainment value, offering an overview of my life from this bird’s-eye perspective.

In a nutshell, my 350 diaries chronicled my as many ups as downs, my dreams and out-of-body and astral experiences, all my relationships, my reflections on the wickedness of people and the state of the earth and my marriage to Jeroen and my everlasting Rob Nanninga love story. Initially, I considered publishing all my diaries while omitting too private details (like full names), but I changed my mind when I started reading the content about my marriage. Roughly speaking, from 2000 the diaries become less suitable for publication because, and this is quite obvious, right?, the distance to past events is getting shorter and still can reveal secrets for some people. I don’t want to cause unnecessary waves: the purpose of this review of my diaries is always constructive, to see the value of meta-reflection as well as always having access to (personally) important information. I will publish childhood, high school, and diaries of my student days and working career until about the turn of the century, while omitting family names (I have to look into this). And of course I already tell the Rob Nanninga story in great detail online.

This is a first selection of my digitization journey, featuring standout items like drawings, intense diary entries, poems, photos, and postcards that literally fell out of my diaries. I will publish my diaries and parts thereof on my new WordPress domain constantiaoomendiaries.wordpress.com , stay tuned! I am immensely grateful to my former self for this invaluable gift of having a detailed and reliable access to my entire life, now fully digitized. Please swipe through and click on the image for the explanation or translation. This specific collection is not chronological, but most dates are provided.

Who was I then? Apparently, I was a Goddess of Love. And this time around, I’m not going to hide it.

It has been seven years since the day of Rob Nanninga’s passing. Extremely good, transformative Lion Hearts times followed, and my another-Davis-relationship with Rob Nanninga still burns unabated.

Living without roommates since the start of the pandemic, I remained in one of the two small rooms until the small space started to creep up on me and in March 2021, I moved into the large Master bedroom…

Rob Nanninga overleed zeven jaar geleden. Extreem goede, transformatieve Leeuwenharten tijden volgden, en mijn Another Davis relatie met Rob Nanninga brandt onverminderd voort.

Sinds de pandemie in 2020 kwam ik zonder huisgenoten te leven en nog lang bleef ik in een van de twee kleine kamers van het huis slapen, maar de beperkte ruimte begon me te bekruipen en ik “verhuisde” in maart 2021 naar de Master…

A year that leaves no stone unturned! To change our life. This planet’s life? To change my life? Nature-endorsed! Or so it seems. The odds are turning in a dramatic way. A pandemic. And no clairvoyant (if they exist) predicted that. This is Lion Hearts VIII with mostly a daily-life update, so not so much about dreams and out-of-body experiences.

I am not in contact with my ex at the moment. I did jump out of an airplane with him on June 13, 20191

Een jaar waarin de onderste steen boven komt! Om ons leven te veranderen. Het leven van deze planeet? Mijn leven? Van harte aanbevolen door Moeder Natuur! Het lijkt er zeker op. De kansen zijn op een dramatische manier aan het keren. Een pandemie! En geen enkele helderziende (als die al bestaan) heeft dat voorspeld. Dit is Leeuwenharten Deel VIII met voornamelijk een update over mijn dagelijkse leven, en veel minder over dromen en uittredingen.

Op dit moment heb ik geen contact met mijn ex, maar ik sprong wel uit een vliegtuig met hem…

The magic-realistic Live Photo in Davis-Ivy Town

The photo blog kicks off with an iPhone 7+ Live Photo as shot on November 21, 2018, in Davis – Ivy Town. I only discovered the photo on May 31, 2019; indeed, exactly 5 years and a day after Rob Nanninga‘s passing on May 30, 2014. Somehow I must have overlooked it for more than half a year.

My iPhone 7+ and iPad Air 2 (but strangely not my MacBook Pro) stubbornly keep referring to my residence Davis as “Davis – Ivy Town“. Finally, I looked it up (I don’t know why I did this so late) and have to say the reason amuses me, because obviously my Apple devices…

De magische Live foto in Davis-Ivy Town

Dit blog bijt de spits af met een specifieke iPhone 7+ Live foto zoals ik die maakte op 21 november 2018 in “Davis-Ivy Town”. Ik ontdekte de foto pas op 31 mei 2019, jawel, precies 5 jaar en één dag na Rob Nanninga‘s overlijden op 30 mei 2014. Ik heb de foto voor meer dan een half jaar over het hoofd gezien.

Zowel mijn iPhone 7+ als mijn iPad Air 2 (maar vreemd genoeg niet mijn MacBook Pro) blijven mijn woonplaats Davis koppig “Davis – Ivy Town” noemen. Toen ik dit eindelijk eens een keer opzocht (ik weet niet waarom ik dit pas zo laat deed), maakte de informatie die ik vond me aan het glimlachen, aangezien…

Download Lion Hearts as blog book!

The Lion hearts blogs are long blogs, especially Part IV and Part V are sturdy bites (each good for around 16,000 words), and together they form one whole. That is why I have merged part I-VIII into one .pdf file. Admittedly, it is the avant-garde of a real publishers edition, but I still present you with satisfaction the blog book:
