For the life of me, I can't kick my forgetfulness. Each and every day there are plenty of blog-worthy opportunities that are presented to me - unthinkable outfits people wear here in the Bronx, sports stories, current events, birthdays, etc. etc. And each and every day, I forget to write them down, even though I tell myself to write them down, because here in the Bronx and greater NYC area, a lot of random, funny shit happens.
I try to do crosswords to keep my brain and mind sharp, I read from time to time, but I still cannot break the habit of forgetting things. I remember information pertaining to family, friends, dates of interest and events (for the most part) but when it comes to blogging I refuse to tap into my memory for material. I am not short on material to write about - I just write about whatever is on my brain and what I find interesting/funny/ridiculous.
There's at least a handful of things I wanted to post about today but I can't remember what they are. And it pisses me off to no end and sometimes eats me up inside.
Here's a list of shit I routinely forget:
- where I put my keys
- where I parked my car
- where I put my phone
- what day it is
- where my iPod is
I guess forgetting these things pales in comparison with forgetting other things. And the weird thing is I memorize some phone numbers, even though it's totally unnecessary because in my cell phone, all I need to do is search for a name.
OK, enough rambling about my shortcomings. Time to get some work done here. I took a 5 minute break because I almost passed out from heat exhaustion because the gym is about 247°.
Back to work so I can get out of here soon.
