Friday Answers

From Five on Friday...

1. They say elephants never forget. Would you compare your memory to that of an elephant or gnat?

I am somewhere between a gnat an elephant. Half the time I can't remember anything, but then I remember the most random stuff. it is weird.

2. What kinds of things do you find it easy to remember?

I find it easy to remember things my friends tell me, random pop culture references, and things I probably should forget (like grudges and what not).

3. What kinds of things do you find it difficult to remember?
I have a hard time remembering what I had for lunch that day, tasks, things I need to bring somewhere or tell someone.

4. How does your short-term memory compare to your long-term memory?

Short term is horrible these days. Long term is in pretty good shape!

5. How do you commit things to memory? Do you use tricks, songs, images, word associations, or other little mnemonics?

I use lots of lists...lots. I put my keys next to things I need to remember. I write it on a sticky and put it on my door. Lists, lists, lists. And even then, sometimes I forget.
