    I swear I'm not always

    so absentminded. I have my days like anybody else! I do have an awful tendency of looking down at whatever I may be holding...just to be painfully reminded that there was a closed door, wall, or random object in my path. Thank God I haven't tripped over my sister yet!

    Somewhat?...heh-heh.

    I'm probably the most forgetful 20-something you'll ever meet. I'm the girl whose looking for the ink pen that she just stuck behind her ear, or the keys that've been in her pocket the whole time she was looking. It isn't even losing things, because in my own space...as cluttered...

    Absent Minded

    It is often a taboo to be absent minded. Tell me if you gave socrates or plato a letter to post at a particular point of time or asked them them to remember certain digits. They couldn't ! Their mind was full of ideas and busy with possible policies of construction of society. It...

    Don't Confuse "Absent-minded" With "Forgetful"

    The last thing I am is forgetful! In fact, I have a better memory than nearly everyone I've ever met. I am however, very absent-minded in a literal sense. I "zone-out" constantly; that "million miles away" experience. I am aware of things happening around...
