I do not ensconce my memories in a chronological time frame. In other words, I tend to remember events but not remember what month/year it was in or how old I was, etc. In one way that is odd because I have an excellent ability to recall information; I can read an article or book and remember specific passages and/or facts from it. In another way, I think it is simply representative of my views on chronological aging; I don't focus much attention on how old I am or what my age means, etc.
Another thing about time...As I get older, time seems to speed up. Days seem to run together and hours/moments lose some of their significance. If you asked me the 5th grade me whether a month was a long time, I would have exclaimed that it was. If something important (to me) was going to happen in a month, I would have anxiously counted down those days--it would have seemed like an eternity. Now, a month is "nothing." I am not sure that I even consider a year to be "a long time" anymore.
While I might be able occasionally to remember verbatim passages from a book or lines from an article, for the life of me, I can take the same path to a particular location 500 times and still not remember it. In other words, I have absolutely no sense of direction. I can even get lost in a large shopping mall. Garmin is a lifesaver, let me tell you!
Finally, I like ice cream--so much so that I tend to down a couple of pints every time I indulge. Luckily, I restrict myself to eating ice cream once a week. :-)
