    Posted here because it seemed the best place for it. -Mods feel free to move/delete it!

    I’ve just had the realisation that I’m likely to spend the rest of my life staying alive and that will be it.

    The thing that made me bother to type this out was that a close friend told me something that is a big deal to her academically and I couldn’t remember it until I was prompted. I wouldn’t say I’m selfish at all, -I make time for everyone and anyone but what good is it unless I can remember things? This, in itself probably makes me somewhat redundant for everything let alone getting a job. My memory of anything unless it’s very significant to me is very bad. All I can really remember is basic facts/equations and stuff that is very personal to me.

    about me: I've just completed the 2nd year of my degree in ChemEng. I had the great idea of giving myself brain-damage a few years ago (which causes my crappy memory.)
    tl;dr version: http://t.co/AM7xFrpQCb] here

    Basically I'm asking for advice, comments, suggestions, anything! But not pity! Cheers,


    Maybe try on focus on just enjoying the moment you're in? Like, enjoy what you have when you have it - the little things. Just try and do what you feel is right in the moment and what you want to do then and there
