Is it possible to see the last notifications, that were send through notify send? Sometimes, i just miss the notification and want to see it again.

This depends on what notification deamon you are using.

If you are using dunst, which is often used with i3, you can access the history with ctrl + `

You can change the key in ~/.config/dunst/dunstrc:

# Redisplay last message(s).
# On the US keyboard layout "grave" is normally above TAB and left
# of "1". Make sure this key actually exists on your keyboard layout,
# e.g. check output of 'xmodmap -pke'
history = ctrl+grave 

If you are on Ubuntu using notify-osd, this may help.
