I think I've posted before that I arrow up and down in my terminal,
too. It's not 100% reliable because the history kept in memory depends
on the order of how you shut down multiple terminal tabs AND windows.
The recently past history that is presented is specific only to each
logged in user's usage.

A while back I decided I also needed something beyond a text editor
file to keep snippets I simply then copied and pasted into a terminal
window and such(ly). I specifically went looking for "sticky notes".

Several different packages come up for that kind of search. I tried a
few then found xfce4-notes (xfce4-popup-notes) possibly already
installed in my xfce4 desktop environment. I use those A LOT on a
daily basis... :)

There are "clipit" type packages out there, too, that save recently
copied snippets from our "clipboards". I "use" it occasionally, but
the sticky notes dealy fits more in line with what I need..
