* Bella of the AlternateUniverseFic ''Fanfic/{{Luminosity}}'' does this all the time. She would like to do it ''more'', but before she meets vampires she doesn't just due to the practical fact that there's only so much time in the day, and after she meets vampires with ESP abilities she had to go to great lengths to keep her written thoughts private. This is one of her reasons for wanting to be a vampire: perfect memory.

* On ''WesternAnimation/TheAngryBeavers'', Norbert recorded a tape telling himself how to regain his memories under the GenreSavvy presumption that he'd eventually be hit on the head by his accident-prone brother and get amnesia. It even contained a ShoutOut to ''Total Recall''. His solution? Just let his brother hit him on the head again.
