Photos above are from my July 4th 2008 weekend trip to NYC.

Having a terrible memory is part of the reason why I need to keep a journal. The last time I made this trip, I also took this long ass bus journey but for some reason I have no recollection of the events during the trip let alone the bus ride down! I mean, sure, it was 7 years ago but shouldn’t I remember something?!

I have photographs that prove I was here and what we did… but no other memory of the time. Of course, I know why I have these lapses in memory but it’s still seems strange to me. It used to be just childhood memories that I had no recollection of. People would tell me stories of things I did when I was little and I’d listen to them as if I was hearing them for the first time.

Does anyone else suffer from this?

  1. I thought it was just me- I’m lucky if I remember what I did last month, much less year ago. Childhood? I was a kid once I think. Something about an firetruck, an orphanage and the Clydesdales…
