It’s that time of the year again! Before you makes resolutions for the new year, it’s best to first remember where you’ve been. Like it or not, thanks to the interwebs storing copious amounts of data on our personal lives, you can easily take a stroll down your digital memory lane to remember all the best and worst of 2013. From reviewing your year on Facebook to trending newsworthy topics on Twitter. Here are five ways you can remember and share your 2013. And in an ode to the tangible, we’ve even included a few ways for you to take your digital memories offline!

Review your Year on Facebook

It’s time to get nostalgic about your life in 2013. Every time you take a photo, check in or share your feelings on Facebook, it is recorded as your personal scrapbook. Take a digital stroll down memory lane by reviewing your “Year in Review” on Facebook.

Print a Photo Book

Many of the year’s best moments are captured on our cameras (or more realistically, your phone). Sites such as Burb and Printstagram allow you to print your photos — I know, a novel idea. These sites allow you to print calendars, cards, photo frames books and more. Having a hard copy will allow you to easily reflect on 2013 with your friends and family.

Review Trending Events on Twitter

Whether you are a Twitter user or not, there is no denying the trend capturing abilities of the site. Twitter has created a interactive widget where you can explore popular moments in news, sports and entertainment over the past year.

Review Your Year in Music

If you are a music lover this is a must. Spotify put together a review of user activity and trends including the shocking statistic that over 1 billion playlists were created in 2013. Review universal trends down to the individual review of your personal top hits in 2013. This stroll down your musical memory lane will have you remembering some of the best tunes of the past 365 days.

Create Lasting Memorabilia from your Instagram Feed

As the digital age pushes forward, we are getting further and further away from creating physical artifacts that will be left behind for our children (and others) to see. I reveal to you, the mini projector. Projecteo launched this new device that takes nine of your Instagram photos, develop them on to a single frame of 35mm slide film and then mails you the slides with a mini projector. You can project these mini images on to any surface. Imagine how fun it will be for your great-grandchildren to find this piece of memorabilia!
