Thinking about the past a lot





rogue_skydragon
Hi guys. I just had a quick question.

What is the word that describes someone who thinks about the past a lot? It's on the tip of my tongue, but I can't get it out! I thought maybe "reminiscent" would be the word, but that doesn't seem right. Any help on this would be great!

Thanks for the help you guys. I figured it out. "Sentimental" was the word I was looking for!

Nostalgia makes you obnoxious. You're thinking of masturbation.

Nostalgia isn't a time frame, it's a specific feeling. You could be nostalgic for the breakfast cereal you ran out of just a few hours ago if you really loved that breakfast cereal and fondly remembered how delicious it was to eat earlier today and completely ignore the fact that it was actually half-stale and then soggy when you ate it too slowly.
