I am talking about my memory skill. Is it a skill or a ability? Is it Nature or Nurture?
Unfortunately I don’t have the answers. Nor I believe that I can be a character in Heroes. I mean what use would I be, I rather be Matt and read minds than collect vivid past memories in my head.
There are three things that I believed to have contribute to my so called “ability”
- I have a larger than normal head size. In side that large head, I have a larger size brain!
- When I was a child, my mum always reminded me that I was not as bright as others and therefore had to work ten time as hard to be on par.
- I had a very high temperature fever when I was young. Went to hospital and subsequently had to carry out a series of brain scans and monitoring to check if I had brain damage or not.
You might think that this is a good ability to have. Well let me tell you, there are disadvantages too.
I remember most times when jokes are on me. Mistakes that I have made. All the lack of courage moments when comes to talk to the opposite sex. Failures at school, uni and work. Any sporting disappointments and other other embarrassment. Over the years, I have learnt to suppress the negative memories and only bring out the positive ones for my blog.
Sometime I feel like an old man telling tales but my ability is still improving. There are still loads of space left in my human video recorder! Yes that’s what I am – a human video recorder, on continuous recording mode!
So you have be warned, if you tell me or show me something, I will most definitely remember that for LIFE!
But here I am living to find even more exciting, interesting, defining moment to treasure. Who wants to be in my video tape?
