I'm good with names, numbers and symbols
(that's why I think when I get the hang of writing Kanji I'll be pretty solid), I guess...
I have the tendency to randomly remember license plates of people I know, when I've seen them twice or less...
it's weird.

When I spend a minute to memorize something,
if I can associate with other things I know, I can keep it for the entire day.
I'm so-so at memory games, the card flipping ones seem to confuse me...not sure why.

Of course, I'll often forget things if I wasn't paying attention at all...that's a given. :P
I also routinely forget to eat a meal or two if I don't have an appetite during work/study.
(This is every-now-and-then).

Being a lifetime insomniac, sometimes I forget to sleep,
and I also forget to make myself wake up during the day at times.

Decent, I remember important stuff fairly as well as alot of not so important information. In the case of facts like names and numbers repetition definitely helps.

I consider my memory to be great, if not awesome. I do sometimes forget important things (usually in regards to the past week) and remembering useless things (also in regards to the past week). I also have a tendency to remembering random trivia and blurting them out in the appropriate situation.

I am not sure..I think my memory is good or some form of retarded, I can remember a lot of stuff..actually I do remember a lot of stuff.
I've done "hard" IT vendor exams with very little study and pass while others and majority has failed but I am not sure if it's I really know-know these things or if it's simply visual memory..idk i feel like im starting to contradict myself and doubting myself but I remember all sorts of big and small things that people forget like one time i baked a cake for the first time for my friends birthday and she doesn't even remember it

my memory was so bad in high school, that they actually diagnosed me with a learning disability. they said i had a horrible short term memory, and much better than average long term memory, meaning... I had a lot of difficulty recalling what happened in any great detail the day before. If, however I CAN manage to remember something for more than 2 or 3 days, I'll remember it for life (needless to say, before I understood how my brain worked, i was a HORRIBLE student. I would get home to do my homework, and not remember how the teacher explained it. Very frustrating. My parents tried a handful of things including Ritalin, but it only gave me a headache). Today i'm 30, and I remember stuff from high school that no one else remembers. everything from what people wore, favorite shirts, to teachers, to people's cars, to funny stuff people used to say (and all the stupid shit i learned in science class that's all outdated obsolete information). I shouldn't remember the majority of all this, and I realize it. it freaks me out when I think about it too much. I remember stupid stuff at work that happened last month, that doesn't matter any more, instead of the important stuff we're focusing on from what happened yesterday and the day before. It can be very challenging sometimes. But I work through it because I like my job, and I still think my circumstances could be much worse all things considered. I find I retain information best when I take notes on everything (even if I think i'll remember something stupid, like a report due the day after tomorrow, I still write it down, because I won't). I have sticky notes everywhere. It's the only way I remember. oh, and i love the alarm app on my phone. i set it for the dumbest crap (but it helps me). and i love writing crap on my hand like lists.

So if there's some poor high-schooler out there reading this right now, and thinking it all sounds somewhat familiar, please. This is for you. It gets better. I swear it does. Some of it you grow out of, some of it gets easier, and sometimes if you're lucky, you find a good person you can spend the rest of your life with that likes anime as much as you do.
if you want to talk, i'm here. DO YOUR BEST!!

If it takes you five years to learn one year worth of information, you're still ahead of everyone who did not even make the attempt.

That's what I tell students when they want to drop my class.... But in reality I'm wondering if they represent a danger to the health of the gene pool.... Then I remember that I don't really care about humanity, I only help people out of a self-gratifying chemical feedback loop I've been exploiting since my teens. And that in the not so distant future, we're probably all going to find out what happens when a messianic middle eastern death cult gets its hands on atomic weapons.

Then I sign off on their class withdrawal slip and wave at them like a sailor saying goodbye.
