Mind like a sieve
I have a terrible memory. For facts and faces and names. Truely terrible. When I was at school, I coped by rote learning over long periods and did quite well until the amount of information became too much to learn off by heart. I make lists all the time to cope now and because I don't HAVE to remember stuff, it's not such a problem. Though it's costing me money. I can't tell you how many books I've bought, read, passed on and then bought again because a quick read of the blurb convinced me I hadn't read it. I wish, wish, wish, I'd started a list of books 'wot I have red' when I was younger. Of course it would be a huge list by now and I'd probably have forgotten where I put it.
