Long-term Memory Loss

So I'm all wrapped up in Facebook these days. It's pitiful, actually.

You know what's really sad, though? I thought it might be nice to look for some of my old college friends, and y'all? I had 9 roommates total, and I can only remember the last name of ONE of them. Because she was my best friend. How sad is that?

Our housing was four girls in a one-bedroom apartment, and I lived in 3 different apartments. First apartment I shared with a mousy girl - maybe Sandra? Wow, she DID NOT like me. And I think Cathy and maybe Jo? See, I'm not even sure!

Second apartment was shared with my friend Cindy who went crazy, a thief named Pam and I don't even remember the name of the very private girl who came with one pot, one plate, one bowl, one cup and one fork. News Flash: Private Girl's name was Rachel. I think.

The last year I had 4 roommates for a while, and I only remember that one of them was named Debbie. Oh wait, and maybe there was a Patty.

Goodness, how sad am I?

Do you remember your college roommates? And was it was longer than 15 years ago?

Hi, Lori :-)

I just joined facebook a couple of weeks ago. I haven't gotten in touch with several people I went to college with, 20 years ago. I can remember all of their first names, but I have only found one of them on facebook. I remember her most, because I was the her maid of honor. ;-) It is fun, but man it makes me feel OLD. ;-)

Hmmm ... I just joined FB a week or two ago under my blog name. I haven't decided yet whether I'll be joining with my real name.

As for roommates:

Freshman year: one roommate, no clue on her name.
Sophomore year: one roommate, Clair something ... I think.
Junior year: two roommates, Amy something and ... Elizabeth something.
Senior year: three roommates, Tracy whose last name I remember, Ann something, and Sandy something.

This was all between 10 and 15 years ago.

College roomates? Yeah, I had four - a husband and three kids. They were messy. And loud.

First, LOVE Facebook.

Next, I graduated from college 15 years ago, and I can remember my freshman roommate (because we grew up together). My sophomore roommate I remember because we had the same major & worked in the same office. (I only remember the first name of the weirdo who had the other bedrm in our apt, though.) My junior roommate was a good h.s. friend, so I'm still in touch with her, and I had 2 roommates (plus 6 other housemates) my senior year. I remember my roommates, but only a couple of the other housemates. Sad...

I can't remember the last names of a couple guys I dated in college, either, though. Yikes!
