I have been getting really familiar with the Major memory system, and that has been awesome.
I can memorise pi up to 100 places, and have memorised a lot of my key phone numbers, account numbers and credit card details etc.
It’s been fun and really helpful. 23 months ago
I am going to work on this intensively for 1 month and then just keep exercising my memory, on a lower basis and scale.
I will use the web to read (how-to) articles and stuff to help me improve my memory and also (e)books on this subject.
from a quick google/hackernews search:
I have not read these yet, I leave them here for you if you might be interested, and for me, to read tomorrow. Also tomorrow, I will make a list of books that I will read on this subject. That’s it for now. GO GO GO! 2 years ago

I came across this nifty, century-old, little trick for remember lists of items or other such lists by visualizing them each in a room of my house and adding an extraordinary but visual story to each.
here’s the link:

Now that I’m out of school, I feel a lot less reticent to continued learning; I’ve picked up a number of little activities I’d shied away from due to mental exhaustion, but now that I’m rested and taking things at my own pace, I’m finding that my brain is a lot more receptive to information that I gave it credit for. I’m glad that ability was not lost forever. Sometimes, all you need is a break. Nevertheless, I still plan on improving it measurably and hope to report back on this one soon 2 years ago
