My terrible terrible memory

I seem to have a problem with long-term memory, short-term memory, and attention span. Here, let me provide a few examples:
  • I started boiling eggs, forgot about them, and then went to class. They exploded all over the kitchen before my roommate found them and turned them off.
  • I frequently forget that I am making tea within seconds of starting, even if the tea is sitting right in front of me. It sometimes takes 30-60 minutes before I realize it.
  • I'll turn on the stove, put a pan down, and walk away.
  • There are many discrepancies between my brother's memories and my memories of events when we were younger.


  1. I would say get a timer and set it whenever you turn on the stove or oven.

  2. I ended up writing a script on my laptop to popup a notice whenever the tea finishes, but I often forget about the tea before I even get back to my seat!
