I'm 20 Years Old And...

I can barely remember my childhood. And not much of middle school. I don't think they were happy times for me, I guess that's why I've forgotten it all.

I can barely remember my childhood too and I've always been amazed by how some people seem to recall the names of all their childhood friends, the addresses of where they lived, and vivid memories of almost every single day. We moved around a lot when I was a kid. That may have something to do with it. However, I'm pretty much the same way with adult memories. The last time I had to fill out an employment history was almost mystifying. There were huge blocks of time I just could not account for. I'm not bothered by any of this, though, and I've never spent much time thinking about the past. I've read that unless you access your memories, you'll lose them over time, and more quickly, too.
