Yes indeed, I tend to forget a great deal of things these days, but I've gotten much better since the time I were a young child. Many years ago as a kid I would forget the simplest things and mostly forgetting peoples names.
I'm not sure why I had such difficulty, but it may have been due to the fact that I use to think way to much. Ever since I learned about meditation, I've been able to free up a great deal of memory space I guess, allowing for me to store huge amounts of info without forgetting things entirely. I still have issues with peoples names though, which is odd but its true.
