Memory in the 21st Century

That title promises a fancy and intriguing appraisal of memory in this modern age. Alas, all it really means is that I have learned over the last few months that if I don’t email myself something, I might not remember it. I’ll be falling asleep and remember something I need to remember to bring to work the next day. The best way for me to actually remember the thing is to send myself an email. Seriously. I know I’ll glance at email before I go out the door in the morning. However, there is no guarantee that I will glance through my brain to make sure I haven’t forgotten anything. Thanks Gmail, for being there for me. You’re saving space on my desktop memory.

I could be a Google Chrome commercial.

I work in the Children's Department of a Regional Library in the Midwest. I am a Bilingual Children's Library Associate. I lived in Mexico to learn Spanish in 2013/2014. I was an assistant teacher of preschoolers with special needs. I care about a lot of things. I am often called too confident. I love. I learn. I teach. I read. I write. I knit. I travel.
