My memory always fail me and sometimes I doubt if my brain is suffering something. I dont remember where my key is, and five minutes ago I put it in my pocket. I dont remember where is my cell, and I call, it ring, that's how I know where it locates. I dont even remember the date of my flight i reserved myself several days ago.... How to improve this bad memory? Is there similar things happen to you?

I'm young yet my memory failed me many times that I get embarrassed even in front of my friends. I forget where I put my things most of the time and during my college days, I leave things, even my bag! in the classroom. I always tell myself not to forget important things. I getting the hang of it. I start by taking memos in a day - the things that I must rememeber. Also, to make sure I don't forget things, I take note of my actions and make sure to implant them in my memory. Before I leave, I take note of the things that I must bring, and things that I must remember. Really, I have to be methodical, otherwise, I'll get in trouble.

Taking memo is a good habbit! But I always dont remember where the list is, such as the shopping list! when I'm in the market, I realise that I have left the list at home! Oh my God!

Yes, it does fail me sometimes.. i have a bad memory.. i easily forget where i've placed this or that.. yay! for example, i'm going to leave the house and i forgot to turn off the lights.. i'll search my bag for my condominium's keys and will start to freak out if i don't find it there.. after searcing and searching, i'll just find out that the keys were kept inside my pocket.. yay!

My memory does fail me sometimes. However, it doesn't always fail me. And I'm only 20 years old. I can't really help it. It happens that my memory fails me. And I'm sure that it happens to everyone.

Hi there. Well, I think it happens to everyone - forgetting stuff, I mean. In my case, the most embarrassing situations are when I forget people's names. I do a pretty good job remembering the faces of people that I meet but actually managing to remember and match names to such faces is another matter altogether. Most of the time, I just choose to be honest and politely say that I seem to have forgotten their names, rather than guessing, which I have done on several occasions - needless to say, those occasions didn't go very well. I have no idea on how to improve memory, though.
