i guess i'm just wondering if other 30-somethings have a similar experience

could be age, years of alcohol/drug use, or the internet

mactheo’s thread about plans made me realize i do actually write out plans a lot. usually i get stoned and forget what the plan is. Then when i look at my plan it’s like smoke weed, drink coffee, and I’m like hell yeah ,I’m on it.

I don't know but just the other day I poured some milk into my honey nut Cheerios, walked to the bathroom, opened the mirror and started the motion of putting the milk carton in the medicine cabinet there. I think I had to pee?

My short term memory is about as fucked as my long term memory.

I've made a more concerted effort to actually deliberately memorise certain passwords/numbers/things rather than just assume I'll remember them automatically, and it's felt like my memory is really not as bad as I thought. after bachelors overuse of alcohol and weed, I was quite concerned.

its always been shit but chronic insomnia over the past year or two has...really not been helping

i feel like long term is just as bad. like seeing a famous actor on TV and knowing the face but not being able to come up with the fact that its Paul Newman or whatever. shits terrible
