I don’t want to say I’m getting old or even older because people in their twenties don’t really have any reason to gripe about anything. But does anyone else have those little moments where a name of a person or movie or album that you’re trying to recall just isn’t there?
It is sort of like my brain is doing the same thing as when you zoom in too far on Google Maps and it says “We’re sorry. We don’t have imagery at this zoom level for this reason.”
Or you try and scan the horizon too fast and your brain just doesn’t have it in it.
The depressing thing isn’t a lag in memory, but rather it’s the fact that this isn’t going to get any better. You can play all the Brain Age you want, you’re not getting sharper any time soon.
You just slowly degenerate old man memory. Telling the same exact story and the same exact jokes (with the same beats) to the same people on a daily basis. There’s no google maps equivalent for this.
