    Like 10 or more years ago. I can remember things down to the details, like positioning of people when things happened, actually able to recreate an experience in my mind of a moment. Some as far back as 40 years ago. It's kind of amazing the things we can store up there.

    How about you? How clear are your memories? Maybe describe one.

    like non existent, specially if im in a car or bus i can go by the same place 40 times i wouldnt remember how to get there no matter what lol. Ive been introduced to people at parties and other places and unless i actually talked to them for more than 10 minutes I wouldnt remember their faces at all, I would just remember i was introduced to someone. I dont remember names, Ive lost my wallet 30 times, I leave my phone on over 20 different locations every month, I always forget to turn off lights in the house, good thing i dont cook but ive had a few cooking accidents, including leaving a spoon inside a blender while making shakes and the list goes forever. HOWEVER my memory is pretty damn good if I actually want to memorize something it just doesnt happen automatically. So I guess I have a very distracted personality.

    I have almost a picture memory on some things.. I've been tested, its ridiculous.

    I remember once (within the last year) having lunch with my friend Sara, from elementary school and talking about our 4th grade classroom. I could tell her everything, the smells of the lunchroom, the sound of the teachers walking down the hall, the placement of toys in the back of the classroom, what her coat looked like... even the boys that scraped their mud off on their desks from the playground.

    And what the teacher wore on a specific day.... it wasn't very pretty.

    Sara kind of freaked. Especially when I reminded her of the day we had the dust storm that year.
