Aurelien Hayman, a 20-year-old student from Cardiff, can remember what the weather was like as well as what he had to eat on any given day.
Aurelien is one of only a handful of people in the world with hyperthymesia, a highly superior autobiographical memory.
He said: "It's not something that I realised overnight, but when I was 14 I discovered that I was quite good at remembering some things that had happened years before."
Aurelien was asked about the random date of October 1, 2006, to which he recalled that it was a cloudy Sunday, he listened to the song 'When You Were Young' by The Killers and he had been rejected by a girl.
In addition, he also remembered that on the Saturday he was wearing a blue T-shirt and saw the girl who would later turn him down, and that on the Thursday there was a power cut at his house.
The average person retrieves information such as dates from their long-term memory in the right frontal lobe of the brain.
Aurelien does the same, but his long-term memory capacity is increased because he also uses the left frontal lobe and occipital areas at the back of the brain.
He continued: "There's no method or technique to it. I'm not aware that my memories are being coded. It's like being able to access something in a filing cabinet very quickly.
"It's like the dates have pictures. It's a very visual process - there's a sequence of images."
However, Aurelien - who studies English Literature at Durham University - insisted that his incredible memory does not give him any advantage when it comes to his exams.
He said: "I have quite a good memory generally but, because what I have is a good autobiographical memory, I don't think it can really help with an academic piece of work at university."
