What makes it that we can remember some things better than others? I've only started to contemplate this as I'm taking my last history class this upcoming semester and if you know me, you'd know that history and I aren't very good friends. I can't remember dates at all and hate whenever I'm asked 'when did this happen' because I feel like an idiot when I guess and am either very close, nowhere near close, or hem and haw and just get a look filled with pity and disgust when I can't remember 'significant event here'.
And yet, if you ask me when a certain band first got together, what their first single was, what the lyrics to five of their songs are, or what style each band members has, I can do it in no time flat. I can do the same with my favorite books, I can quote movies and TV shoes like it's no one's business, and I can remember things from way back in Pre-K on up and no one seems to remember any of it. (Though it's helped me when it came to writing our books Two Pair and Four of a Kind because some conversations I've actually had are in them). So I've always wondered what is it that makes some people remember some things better than others?
Why is it that I can remember practically everything I need to know, but I can't remember significant dates other than birthdays and holidays? It's always been something that I've found interesting, yet it makes me a bit anxious for my upcoming history class.
While I ponder that, I need to get 15 pages of script writing done.
Loves anything red. Rock music, playing the guitar, drawing, writing, tattoos, and sports are some of my interests and hobbies. I like to laugh, I like to think I'm funny. I talk a lot...just a warning.
