I forget things. Constantly.
It’s not a new thing, even after having to memorize the times table in elementary school, I still have to figure out (or double check) some of the math facts (Quick! What’s 8 X 6?)*. In music school, I wasn’t the best at memorizing the pieces that I had to learn. Not the most convenient attribute for a performer…
I write things down. Sometimes. But, then I have to remember to look at it.
I did realize that if you remember to remember, you remember things more often. We all have said to ourselves, “I forgot to remember that I needed to get [insert item here]”.
Some people are good at remembering/recalling, others are not. That’s just how it goes.
Where are “The Miniscules”? Yup. You guessed it. I forgot to do one this week. In my defense, my schedule was all over the place this week.
That’s all the weirdness for today.
