    I Hold Memories

    of things that half the people I know don't remember. I remember people and events who have completely forgotten me. It's awkward when someone doesn't remember who you are and you're like "We used to play together for hours! Outside, all the time, on your front step! You don't...

    This isn't a very positive one.

    ..but I remember that in the 2nd grade I didn't have friends to play with during recess. My only friend Juan was held back and was embarrassed so he didn't talk to me for a year. I was a very shy and quiet girl who sat/stood against the wall just watching others play. I hated...

    I Remember

    Sometimes my memory is just too good.

    I remember things in such vivid detail that it is almost painful for me to remember times past and the people I shared those times with, and to think they're gone. This memory is from high school. I was in my junior year, 16 years old but soon to be 17 in early November. My...

    I remember numerical wifi passwords freakishly

    well. My aunt's one is 80A1D7750 Her friend's one is 00236A2F9A, off the top of my head just like that. I also really vividly remember conversations like from 4 years ago, it's weird. That's why I always get 95 and above in Tests where it requires you to memorize notes or data...

    A Long Memory

    I'm much like an elephant, in a way. I have a very long memory. And I can remember events and feelings as far back as age 5. And I remember it like it was yesterday! People often say, "It's like you're still there, but that happened over ten (or more) years ago!" I'm...

    Echoic Memory

    I think I may have pretty near perfect echoic memory. This means that when someone says something to me, I can repeat it back exactly (obviously vocal chords allowing). I used to think everyone had this but I went to a dialect class and I could do the dialect exactly if I...

    One of my fondest memories was with my former

    boyfriend. We met by accident in twitter and decided to meet up and I remember bringing him back to my house and watching finding nemo 😂. I was lying with my back on his stomach and I remember looking up at him and him giving me the sweetest little kiss - I was besotted with...

    This goes out to the people I tried to befriend

    and talk to here on EP only for you to NEVER truly care about being my friend. You may have responded once or added me to your circle but you never put in any effort. I don't forget but they do. This is why I don't initiate often.

    I remember a lot from my childhood

    and I remember the mental states I was in too, the confusion I saw in the things I didn't know and my bewilderment and emotions. I was actually very stubborn and I constantly felt like I had to prove myself to everyone around me. I would explore defiantly through...

    I have near perfect memory

    when it comes to studying. I can't say I don't study for tests, but my studying means just reading the paragraph once and/or answering some questions at the end of the text (it depends on how big the test is). Sadly I have a really bad memory when it comes to my personal life...

    I Have a Rich Memory

    I remember events sometimes just like I'm living them at the moment they come to my head. I'm very visual. I remember mostly all the words, voices. And often the sensation. I can even pick up some details, days/hours, clothing, on things that happened in my childhood.

    Indeed, I Do.

    I have always been aware that I've had a good memory since I was young. Thinking back, I can't tell you one test or exam I extremely studied for, and it's not like I just winged such tests either, I always aced every single one of my tests/exams. Even during finals week in...

    Hard Wired Right

    I am fortunate to have a good memory.  It makes some things so much easier.  It comes in handy at work since I can remember a ridiculous amount of phone #'s & computer codes. And in school the medical terminology sticks with me as well. It doesn't...

    I think it burns my since of truth to hear me

    shouting in my youth I need a way to sort it out. After I die I rewake redefine what was at stake from the hot side of a god. I see the people that I used, see the substance I abused, the ugly places that I lived. Did I make money was I proud? Did I play my songs to loud. Did I...
