    A Little Confuzzled...

    That's what we call it around here, anyway.  I think everyone goes through it at some point, it just varies by degree.  In our family I've always been the one who kept everyone else on course: I knew everyone's schedule, phone number, where everything and everyone...

    I Misplace Items Too Much!

    I always lose items or misplace items and as the years go by it get worst. Could be because I like Neatness and any small items around will be store somewhere but sometime I forget where. I lose small items too but are they really lost if they are somewhere hidden in the home?

    so many people I know are stem majors

    and so focused on school, but I just can't focus. it exhausts me. I like being in peace and staying stress free. I can handle non major science classes, but when it comes to math above statistics level and pre-med classes, it seems that I can't handle it.
