My college philosophy teacher would be amused by me quoting Nietzsche. For I had huge problem with Nietzsche, which my teacher said came from my mis-understanding of where Nietzsche was coming from. I never did embrace his philosophy, but apparently we have one thing in common.
A bad memory. It happened sometime in my thirites. "Hey, Liz, do you remember so and so?"
"Hey, Liz remember when we ___?"
Pictures help - help alot. In fact, if I didn't have pictures from moments in my life I would feel like I had no past life. Sometimes though even that doesn't help. My friend recently posted this picture on Facebook.
I totally don't remember this. NADA. It's from my college days - Linda tells me we were going to Dean's Halloween party and I'm like "Who is Dean?"
And so I'll leave you with another quote from Nietzsche.
The advantage of a bad memory is that one enjoys several times the same good things for the first time. ~Friedrich Nietzsche
