I Somewhat Absent-minded At Times

    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!

    Call Me Airhead

    I am constantly absent minded. I don't pay attention when I put things anywhere and am always looking for something. I forget to do things I'm sopposed to do. I didn't used to be like this. It really upsets me sometimes and my husband gets pissed at me. I think it is caused by...

    I'm absent minded a lot.

    I forget things all the time. I think I would forget my head if it wasn't attached. I keep having to go back for things or go without them. It's very annoying because my time is limited, and I lose a lot of time and money because of my forgetfulness.

    Oh Yeah!

    I try to be organized. I set things out and file them so I know wjere they are and where I can find them. I've been know to make lists. I've been known to save things almost to long. I've been known to re-arrange things. That, re-arranging, is problematic ... caus as soon as...

    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...

    Almost Got In Car Accident

    I live up in my head.  It's fun sometimes, but scary too.   Too often, I climb up in my head at inopportune times.  I.e. like when I'm driving a car.  Tonight I almost got in an accident at a red light.  Of course, I had stopped at the red light, been...

    Terrible memory which is getting worse,

    so lost in thought sometimes...I'm a wreck. A councillor said I am absent minded once and I took it as an insult. Oh well. It's true

    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...
