    A Yearbook is a Necessity

    A Yearbook is a Necessity

    Imagine something that houses images of all of the events and people who made your years in school special and you’ll get a sense of the importance of owning a yearbook. It captures memories frozen in time, events that happened, faces that change inevitably and memories that may only be remembered again by opening the cover. You can’t see the same things while scrolling through social media, and that is why a yearbook is actually a necessity. They will never go out of style and will always be a treat when came across, no matter how old their users grow. They will always serve their same purpose that can never be quite replicated anyplace else.

    It may seem that your parents get just as excited about the yearbook as you do — sometimes more. They enjoy seeing how your childhood friends have changed. They want to remember your school years, too and they probably have a good understanding of how a yearbook possesses inherent value. The first look at a yearbook is fun and exciting, often marking the end of a school year and a summer of freedom. But the moment a yearbook is opened years later, a flood of all types of memories will resurface. You may not realize now how remarkably valuable a yearbook is and will be in the future, but trust this — having one from each year of high school will not be something you regret.
