Most of the time you remember the event vividly but more often than not you forget when it actually happened.

And what about the first day in college, the graduation day, your first day at work, your first coffee date, the day when he proposed you, and so many more such days to come which will be inscribed in some place or the other. (most of the time the blog or ur diary)
