live, laugh, love! ;)

memory palaces

the method of loci. its so fascinating! i have one in my head, but its just a small cottage and more for relaxing and memories than memorising things.

i just read that we can have multiple! so i’m building 2 more now ^^ just really wanted to share this because its such an amazing mnemonic and the holidays just seem to be a perfect time for doing things like this! we’ll never know till we try!

here’re some particularly striking quotes, useful websites, and an inspiring (cough) video for all aspiring future gamblers HAHA. nah just kidding.

You need to know the place like you do a lover; so intimately that it sometimes hurts in such a wonderful way.
