Meandering thoughts of a Bay Area college student… be prepared for some bipolar vocabulary

My Achille’s heel

For the love of me, I find it really difficult to remember anyone’s names. I’m fine with memorizing faces, but that doesn’t help when someone familiar walks up to me and yells, “Hi Bao!” and I reply with an embarrassing, “Heey! What’s up… umm… sorry what was your name again?” Really common names like Mark or Annie is hard. Complicated names like Aahaladita are also hard. Something unusual and short, like Hugo, I’m good at (Hugo is a fencing classmate).

It makes me seem like I don’t find you important enough to remember your name.
