I keep forgetting

Canada
August 8, 2011 5:12pm CST
Im not on Mylot on the weekend because Im too busy doing my house chores or being at dad's home to do his cleaning and cooking. But when I watch tv or talk with my family, things happen and I keep telling myself that this would be a great discussion for Mylot and it would be lovely to find out what Myloters think about this. SO I make a mental note but come Monday, I dont remember what I wanted to talk about . So how do you do it, how do you make notes of what you'd like to talk about on here. Are there things that happen on that same day? Are you on mylot all the time and thats why?

That happens to me too :D I get some brilliant things in my mind and want to post discussions about them but once i'm in mylot I forget about it and no matter how hard I try to recall, it never comes back! Then again it does when I am in the offline world. Annoying, I know!! LOL Anyway I think we best makes notes of whenever these ideas hit us so then we can make discussions and have lovely interactions here :D Have fun!!

Here I was thinking that I was the only one to forget and it seems that we nearly all do it . Its good to know that Im not alone in this. Ive come up with such interesting discussions and they're all forgotten now . Surely there must be a way to get our brains to remember. Im going to try and find a way. If I do....I should remember to start a discussion about it

It feels great to know that we're not alone, doesn't it hehe :D Anyway one of my friends said my memory wasn't too good coz I didn't eat peanuts when i was a kid, she said they'd help the memory power or something. To be honest I don't really like them! Did you also not eat your peanuts as a kid ;D

Yes it sure is great not to be alone!! Mmm well we didnt have much peanuts at home bacause my brother was allergic to them. Maybe you have something here. We need to do a survey on who ate peanuts as a kid and who didnt and see what the results come up to???

You were so industrious that worked out the mylot discussion over doing your house chores and talked with your family.I think you were surely run off your feet on monday therefore what you wanted to talk about slipped from your memory.

You sound like you know me or might live next door to me haha. Yes my weekends are very busy and Im always running all around. So yes, thats probably why ideas slipped from my mind. I'll try and carry a notebook with me to write it all down as I think of the ideas. You sound like you might have busy weekends also!!

I keeps forgetting about good topics to start up here on mylot. But the good is, that there are other people who post good topics. I try to be here every day. Mylot is a interesting place to discover new knowledge. I learn much from mylot.

Me, whenever i thought of something to discuss, i would jot it down in a small paper, just the thought and put it in my wallet. When i get home, i will get it from my wallet and expound on it on the laptop and there, post it here. I would also get topics from shows that i watched. I take note of them on a notepad that is always beside me when i watch TV. That way, i don't forget and just expound on them when i already have the time.

I think its the best way to remember it all. I already have a notebook on the table, handy to write foods I need to buy, so I'll now use it for mylot ideas also.

LOL I find myself doing the same thing! Just plumb forgetting when I came here, and I know - I mean just KNOW!!!! - that I have all kinds of good stuff to talk about. Then I keep making a mental note to get a pad of paper to write down my ideas...but, well, I keep forgetting to do that as well

Usuallly i just jolt down the title in a piece of paper which i am interested to discuss about in mylot during non Mylot hour during the day, it is just not common for thing to pop out from no where for me to want to discuss in Mylot most of the time, it only happen couple of time in a year. After i log in Mylot in my free time, then i will only think of how to outline the details for the discussion. There is no problem for me to get a piece of paper around my work place and home most of the time.

Same here, I have so many little pieces of paper with stuff written on it that at times I gather them all and throw them away. I think I'll look into a notebook to write everything in and I hope that way to have it all in one place.

Yes it does help remember when you write it down but you're right, how to keep the brain working and not rely on something else. Not easy is it?

You can jot down your thoughts somewhere, that'll help you remember. I logged back into mylot today for the 1st time in 3 years. I was doing another at home job, but I lost that job, so I figured I'd try mylot again, and now I've gotten used to doing things online, I enjoy it very much.

I start very few discussions. The one I started today happened to stay with me for a day or two. I am here a little bit most days but I am a lot of other places as well. I am trying to get started on some steady work online. I have, in the past, made notes on scrap paper. On one vacation I even got paper towels out of a rest stop bathroom to make notes for here and for Gather. Sometimes if I can just get one word down I can remember it. I had something else come to my mind while I was posting today, but I cannot for the life of me remember what it was.

Well sounds like you found yourself some other work online. I sure hope it'll work out very well for you GG. Well sounds like it must have been a great idea if you got some paper towels to write it down on. I will start to do the same. Im the same, sometimes Im replying to a discussion and get an idea for one and .......I forget also Let us know how it goes with your work then.

It happens to me sometimes. I can often come up with topics when I am ready to sleep. Although the computer is just beside me I still find it hard to write it down immediately for discussions because I am already so sleepy. Then I forget about all of it in the morning and thought I should have written it on paper. But how when I am already very sleepy.

I know, it does happen to me also before I go to sleep. It does also when I wake up and its not easy then too to write it down as Im ready to go when I have to get up in the morning. Im trying to find a way to get my brain to remember things. I need to try to find a way to remember it, make my brain work more I guess.

When I am not at mylot. I always have this habit of keeping a small paper near me. I do it even before I joined mylot. I am forgetful and to deal with that I keep notes near me and write things as they come or put it on my phone as an alarm. You won't believe me but I also keep it beside my bed. I wake up sometimes at night with an idea and I write that, by the next day I write an article about that for my blog. I do that now too for mylot, if something comes to my mind I write it all out and post them one by one.

Same with me, I do think of things when I wake up!! Sounds like I'll need to carry a small book with me at all times or ...you're right, I can make notes in my cell too Why are we so forgetful though? haha
