How to Cull Your Memory

I want to know why my memory decides to keep some things but then lose the others.
I want to know why I can remember Heather Wilson describing the movie Clueless in full to me 17 years ago, but I can’t readily remember what I wore yesterday.
I want to know why I remember when my friend Latoya Young explained the full plot of The Best Man to me in the 10th grade, but I couldn’t tell you what I did last Tuesday without checking my ical.
I want to know why I remember so many random movie related facts in general, but I can’t remember anything ANYTHING math related. I’m lucky I can count to ten.
5 years ago (wow) I decided I would win over my memory. I would write what happened every day.
And I did it. For 2 years.
