    It's funny how with a simple "lol"

    or a crude comment all of our problems are magically forgotten. A smile can fix someone's day? No...It just makes it disappear.

    So I'm at work, and my manager asks me to go

    get something from the stock room. I hurry over to the stock room, only to realize I don't remember what she told me to get, so I come back to ask again what it was that she wanted me to get. Slightly annoyed, she tells me again, and so I head back to the stock room. On my...

    And really should start listening to those

    instincts I keep ignoring. Don't you hate when you get up early thinking you have to be somewhere, so you do. You get all the way down there, and no one is there.

    Always Have Been

    Growing up, my mother would always kind of pick on me about how forgetful I am. Many mornings before I left for school or whatever, she would run through a list of things with me that I was prone to forgetting, like my lunch or book bag, etc. She was always very sweet about it...

    A curse or a gift. It's more of the former

    but it has it's times. God above, I'm surely thankful I don't remember every detail of every bad thing I've experience in my life. But most definitely this is not a most welcome attribute specially when I find myself scratching head looking through my purse for the keys to my...

    Bain of my life, I often feel really stupid

    when I forget things and I'm vague a lot of the time about the past. I feel like I've lived so many lifetimes already with all I've seen and done and there not enough room in my head to remember it all :(

    I have always been forgetful.  I think I'm part crow (bird, not tribe); I'm easily distracted by shiny objects. Although I started getting high at 15 and still do, that didn't make my forgetfulness a lot worse, although I did learn not to work high (different story, working...

    I always forget things.

    People joke around with me about it but it really holds me back. If I was able to remember things I would be able to have more order in my life. I can't help that I'm forgetful and I don't like being this way either.

    I keep forgetting to take my vitamins everyday.

    I also forget to weigh myself every week. There are too many things to remember. I have to set alarms/reminders for these things, otherwise I won't do them.

    It is ridiculous how forgetful I am. Really. I can be in the middle of clearing the table with my hands full of plates and I will space out for a second and have to ask myself "what am I doing right now?". Then I remember, think "oh yeah" and get back to it. Asking myself "What...
