Forget me not

I have a photographic memory... No, i am not refering to the phrase about -"All of us have photographic memory, some just dont have film in it!!!" :P



I tend to remember things a bit too much in detail, and sometimes its quite funny!! Yes, there are days when i wish i dint remember so much, but to hell with that.. Cant have it all can we!?

I remember-
Faces
Names
Instances
Incidents
Interesting moments
Conversations we had while at a particular spot
Will remember the conversations/moments everytime we go to that place... 

The Downside is, i also remember-
Sad Things people did
Pain
Hurtful moments
Tears and the entire story behind it

Right Down to every last detail.. What was i wearing, what time was it.. What the weather was like.. How many others were around us.. What was i doing before/after... and everytime the place/moment/person/thing comes up i will remember! No, i am not faffing!! :-)

Was recenlty reading up about photographic memory and discovered its called Eidetic memory. Now i dont now if i fit into that category, but i do remember more than others around me!! Keep ragging my mom and Family saying - You had a child prodigy and you dint know!! :-)

What brought this post about? well,last night was surfing the net and found a random post about Bowling and  "Snookers" and that is when memories came flooding- a conversation  i had with a friend during my recent visit to Blore.. during a drive down a particular road near his house and what we spoke about till we reached the signal, the words my friend spoke and how during our next drive down that way i told him of it and we had a good laugh!! :D

wow!! child prodigy indeed... i am the exact opposite.... terrible at remembering...... of course, i do have memories, both good and bad, but very selective.. and quite erratic too... in fact, we are having a school reunion next week, and are getting together on fb.. and can u imagine??? i dont remember half the girls.... cant remember half of their names and the faces of the other halves.. want to meet them desparately, but dont know what on earth i am going to talk to them about, when i dont even remember them!!!!! i envy you right now :)

Ive always been a bundle of contradictions..there are certain thgs that I can just completely forget..but it just completely escapes my mind and there are certain that I can remember to every single detail..neither of them is voluntary - it just happens ..call it eclectic or selective amnesia or photographic..i wouldnt know ..

Wow. I'm the exact opposite. I have the memory of a goldfish!!

I think you need to read a lot of books, eat almonds and chocolates (one bite of each :D) and sleet till 8 every morning. You'll never remember what you don't want to (and most times, even what you want to):D

Aaarti,

I read through your really amazing post and I wanted to say that I wish I had your amazing ability to remember things easily. There are so many times that I get really angry at myself because I can't rememeber something someone said to me.

However I do have the oppisit somewhat. I can remember bad things that happen really easily, I don't really remember the details I just remember the way i felt. Its like the bad feelings are burned into brain. and they stay there for a VERY long time. That is why every day I make it a point to create more good memories and feelings so that I can fill my brain with the good and drown out the bad.

thank you for sharing! =)
