My memories has always been hazy. I always tell Luci this, that I never remember everything we’ve done together or anything in my life for that matter. Even when some trivial thing in the past I’ve done, I wouldn’t remember some of it.
It’s not like I have Alzheimer’s. I don’t think I have that disease. But sometimes, just little things like making origami for a friend back in college, or singing Little Mermaid’s Part of Your World in my own Tagalog version, I don’t remember any of those until someone in my life tells me or reminds me about it. “Remember when….?” Gah, why can’t I remember those things? They are so special to me, yet why?
I do think I tend to block out some things to make room for newer memories. However, there are times, I would tell myself, “Oh, this is something I need to remember! It was so fun this day!” but then, that memory fades away like it was never there. Well, it could be there, but it would be in the back of my mind.
That’s why I like taking pictures and videos as much as I can. It’s my basis for my memories. I would look at one picture and say, “Oh yeah! That happened that day! I’m so glad I remembered.”
Yet, there are things I will always remember. My firsts. My lasts. My heartaches. My loves. Those things, I cannot forget. Those things, I will always treasure.
What memory, do you think, we had together that you will always remember? Maybe you can help me remember them again?
P.S. And I hope my friend Jamie is happy that I updated this blog. I know it’s been a while. :)
