    Its A Blessing...And A Curse...

    Having a great memory means I ace every test in college and that all my co-workers come to me when they have questions. I don't mind so much...I like being helpful. But what a good memory also means is that I remember every bad thing you every did, anytime you ever hurt me, and...

    Numbers Only

    So I have this uncanny ability to remember sequences of numbers and specific dates. A friend can tell me their birthday once, just in passing, and I'll never forget it. (Especially if it's near another birthday I know.) I've also memorized the bar code number of my library card...

    I remember so many things.

    Memory Is Too Good Sometimes

    I have an incredible memory for details, dates,faces, etc....Usually it is great but sometimes I'd like to forget things like your average joe does. I could get along without remembering each ex-girlfriend and the reasons why they left for example. But for the most part it's...

    For Example

    I've been staring at the screen trying to figure out how to explain how good my memory is, and I can't.  I can't put into words the image I have of Niagra Falls.  I've seen it only once, and if I could draw, I would from memory.  I can't tell you what its like...
