I like them, personally, and I like them a lot more/am more likely to re-use them in future if there’s wiggle room? Give me a scone recipe with “add 1 cup of cheese or fruit or chocolate chips” and I’ll use it way more than one that just says “add 1 cup cheese.”? It’s weird.

Interesting! I find I often make the friege+pantry calculation but a lot of the times the thing on the other end of the = still reads “too many steps” and I end up having a spoonful of peanut butter for dinner. 😂

Hey, I started an online class and dropped out while prepping for the mid term. And in my day job I’m an administrator for school so I’m handling students dealing with this all day. No shame at all in this not working for you. This is not a workable reality for a lot of ppl. 💜

Yes! This works for Threadreaders and threadreaderapp. They seem to use the same sort of “BLOCK ME” system, but you have to tweet at them, just blocking them through normal twitter blocking isn’t enough. There’s like a new company every quarter though; it’s a nightmare.

I mean... object ghosting comes with a cute comic, so I’m obviously all in on that! 😂 But yes, I also think I misjudged the emotional landscape of this topic. Title of my autobiographt right there.

I get it, and I wasn’t trying to attack anyone. I thought I padded what I was saying enough but I also think I misjudged the emotional attachment to the term, so in retrospect I think I could’ve worded it better. Not rude or mansplain-y at all!

Well that sounds like everything we need! Oh and a billion dollars.

And some people have been downright nasty to you. If it gets you any relief from the trolls, fucking drag me to hell and back. I can take it. Whether or not some words work for my brain-map is not important at all compared to your safety. 💜

I don’t think there’s a scientific term for the experience (yet) but I think I can find some research that might explain the process that leads to the experience.

Yes, it might be a double edged sword kind of thing? Something about how we encode memories then makes the recall more difficult unless we consciously do certain things...

If it’s any interest I think there actually is something in an intersection of the literature... not just working memory, maybe in the encoding from working memory to long term memory? Something different, somewhere in there.

This was absolutely not about your thread, dear friend, and I’m sorry that I didn’t word it in a way that made that clear. 💜💜💜

I’m literally looking at the research, too. And I’m like... not finding this thing. I agree it’s a thing. I’ve experienced it. But I’m not finding this thing. That doesn’t mean the thing doesn’t exist.

There are some feels around these parts. The water is deeper than I anticipated.

Yes. There seems to be something interesting here around relying on declarative memory to compensate in deficits for other forms of memory formation... something to do with encoding or recall...

I thought I made a lot of space for discussion there...

I... don’t think I’d recommend the wading.

That sounds absolutely terrifying and I totally agree that people need a term to distinguish what you’re describing from what we think of as “forgetfulness”

I’ve had several drinks and I feel responsible for said upset. I think.
