Losing it

I've been having the strangest sense of time just slipping by.

For example, I know that it's Wednesday evening. Not only that, but I know it's July 2, which is pretty incredible for a person who never remembers dates. But there have been periods during the day when I can't remember which month it is or what day it is or even how my life fits into the current season. The whole thing is scary and disorienting.

I realize that this comes from not having a routine that marks out the days in a week, like school or work, and that as soon as I start my part-time job things will get better. But it worries me that I feel the slightest bit insane during these periods. Not shooting up a Wal-Mart insane, just drooling on the street corner insane.

Anyone else have this issue?

  1. Yes. If I don't have a routine I totally lose the days... I kept asking Michael if today was Monday. lawl.

  2. I have the same problem. It's especially embarrassing when you need to fill out a form and you completely blank as to the date.

    My family usually understands why I don't keep up with the date during Summer months, but the chick behind the counter at the post office is more judgmental about it.

  3. See, this is usually why I wear a watch with the date on it. But now I can't find it. :(
