I felt like describing my memory and some things that I have been realizing about it to you all. I would love to hear your input!
The main reason I got into mneumonics was to figure out why I have such a hard time remembering what a recent class that I took was about. I’m a college student. Now, I don’t have complete amnesia. However, I often times had to struggle to remember things that I felt should come easily, like some basic information I learned in a recent class.
After learning how to build memory palaces, I’ve noticed that the information comes to mind a lot more easily, which is a huge relief. It feels like I finally have some control over my mind and how information is stored in it. However, I now have the problem of wanting to make permanent memory palaces for every class I take because I feel as if I won’t remember it properly if I don’t do this, which is becoming quite burdensome. Have any of you ever dealt with this?
Some background about myself: I’ve experienced some childhood trauma and have recently realized that I’ve been repressing memory’s for years; I believe this to be one cause for my memory issues. Secondly, I’ve grown up with some technology addiction and I feel as if I’ve been robbed of some brain power due to over-usage of pornography, video games, YouTube, etc. Can anyone relate to me with any of this? On top of all that stuff, I’m also a business owner and have to deal with a lot of stressful situations; yet another thing that makes my mind function more sporadically.
I’m excited to hear your thoughts!
