However, I think I am bringing my bad memory days to an end.
I am exactly the kind of person that needs a dozen reminders before I will remember to get anything done, and unfortunately this has greatly impacted my life, and not in a good way. I am even like this when it comes to birthdays and other celebrations. People become hurt because they think I am purposely forgetting or that I just don’t care, but that couldn’t be further from the truth! I sometimes have difficulty remembering my own birthday, so much less other people. I already struggle with dates as it is, so when it comes to less important things, such as getting the heating and air conditioning unit maintained, that is even harder to remember. Now don’t get me wrong, I value both my heating unit and cooling component, but it isn’t as important as remembering birthdays for example. However, I think I am bringing my bad memory days to an end. With the calendar app on my phone, I have been writing down everything, and I do mean everything. A great example is actually my HVAC appointment, because I had one coming up, and thanks to my reminders on my calendar, I am able to remember on time for once. It is really nice because since my phone is one of the first things I check in the morning, my calendar will send me a notification with the reminder. It reminded me about the A/C appointment at 3:00, and it felt great to finally be able to get things done on time.
