My memory is getting worse...

    ...and I'm only 20!

    Yesterday, my sister told me to pick her up from school after I got out. Ok, not a problem. Today, got stuff done, went to get car stuff done, went to class, and then.... I drove home without picking up my sister.

    My mom asked me about it when I got home, and I still couldn't remember it! It was as if it had completely just never happened in my recollection. Then it started coming back, like I was remembering a dream. It's not like I wasn't paying attention when my sister told me either; it was one-on-one conversation.

    Usually if I forget something, it's because I'm multitasking, and then I'll go DOH! when I realize I forgot. But this time it's kind of different.

    I think it's about time I start organizing myself.

    I found that the years I spent consuming mass quantities of alcohol have affected my memory.

    plan your day, write stuff down. To remember items, associate the item with another thing. eg "pick up my sister" assoicate with "don't miss her"

    Never really understood the concept of having to remember two things so you won't forget one of them.

    Commit the item to memory, lock it in while needed, then dump it when it's no longer required.

    Note the pens and note book for remembering stuff.

  12. your brain is still immature......at 20 its mainly thinking below your nob, food and money, it'll take a few years of responsibilty before it gets in order
  13. iPhone calender, keeps me organized. Also, the reminders app, it will remind you when you leave, pass by or arrive at a place. It is awesome.

    Don't feel bad. The other day I found a lamp so I rubbed it and a genie popped out. The genie told me he would give me a choice of having a better memory or a bigger weiner and I can't remember what I told him I wanted...
