Hi everyone! My name is Bethany and I’m from Indiana, USA. I’m a graduate student starting at Emory University in the fall.
I started using the method of loci to memorize class materials in high school. I don’t like taking notes in class (I have ADHD so it’s hard) and in college I’ve used mnemonics to make mental notes during lectures. I’ve never really developed an organized system, though. Now, I want to develop more skills for storing useful information. I’m not that interested in memorizing playing cards or random numbers, but I do want to be able to memorize literature, learn new languages, and remember information relevant to my field.
I’ve started learning the Major System so that I can better remember dates, but I’m not sure if that’s the best way to reach my goals. If anyone has input or similar interests, feel free to reach out. Otherwise, I just wanted to dip my toes into the forums after lurking for a while.
