People always talk about muscle memory. It’s how you remember how to ride a bike, or drive the same route home every night without really paying attention.

But what about your brain?

Every now and then a certain date comes around and you feel like utter shit. There’s no reason for it, everything is fucking wonderful and yet you just. can’t. shake. that. feeling.

You spend days trying to work out what the hell is wrong with you until you hear a song, or Timehop brings something up and you remember…that happened this time last year.

That thing that simultaneously led to the best and worst moments of your life. That thing that you wouldn’t take back because you know it helped shaped you as the person you are today. But also that thing that almost completely destroyed you.

Your body and your brain remembers things without you ever consciously realising. But the moment you do it hurts all over again.
