Memory, Memories.

Memory.
The mental faculty of retaining and recalling past experience. The act or an instance of remembering; recollection.

In my life, the above 2 lines make no sense.

Hi. I'm Sid. I'm 15 years old. I'm a student, currently in 10th grade. I have poor memory.

I've met alot of people over the past 15 years. And based on an analysis, I have concluded that there are 3 different kinds of people. One who have an eidetic memory, one who have normal memory, and then there's me, with poor memory.

People remember incidents from their story from when they were 2-3 years old. They oldest memory I have is of 5-6 years old. I am a student, I have to memorize a lot. 10 subjects, around 200-330 pages fat textbooks for each. Now i've met people who read​ once and remember for a lifetime, people who read often and remember for a lifetime, and then me, who reads and reads for a lifetime, but remembers only once.

My brain is like a hard drive. It already is small in size, but along with it it's completely full with crap. I wish I could clean it all out.

When I read a book, I read a whole page. Read 2 pages. When I try to recollect: NOTHING. It's like i'm brainwashed. I mean I just read it, my memory should have at least remembered something, but it doesn't. People say that if you are really interested in something, you remember about it. I guess i'm not really interested in anything.

I can't remember song lyrics, can't remember small details, can't remember study notes, I can't remember that I have to study when I wake up early in the morning. I have to put post-its on my phone, so that I notice and remember. Else I go to sleep thinking why did I put an alarm for early morning like a fool. . I even forget my mothers birthday.

Even while writing this story, I had so many points, but I gradually forgot a few of them, and they were really good examples. I'm really sorry. But I hope you get the idea.
