disclaimer this is not anything new it just an observation in that i've been using images as loci for about three days and what i've found is that using preexisting objects to use to launch me to the net locus is insainly useful e.g. apple rolling off a table or a hat gentally gliding down from a counter. a model aeroplane flying to or into were i want to go and the list goes on. so anyway just a quick

note to myself read the wikki more.

today:
+ i learnt that you should not most of the time memorise whole books usless completely necessary
+ i have found that i can traverse loci faster using three techinques going throught the loci at
_ super speed picturing myself running goffly fast then looking at the sences from different angles then adding interesting shading.

Day 3

I didn't do any memorising today, as my depression was really bad.

Looking over my current image system for cards, it occurs to me that most of these don't really relate very well. I might switch to the Dominic system actually; however that leaves the question of the Jacks, Queens, and Kings...

Day 2

I failed both attempts today, which was pretty discouraging. However, I've set up a PAO system for the cards that I'm going to start learning, so hopefully I should be more accurate in the future.

I might also work on a memory palace for permanent things as well, based around Super Mario 64. I know that game better than some of the houses I've lived in, so hopefully it'll be a good choice. Maybe I'll even make a nested memory palace... hmm.

TODOs for 2017

- Come up with a semi-rigid (and lighter and smarter than now) training schedule for the duration of my parental leave, including:
a) memory drills (large visualization and linking reviews, speed runs)
b) dexterity drills (USE REAL CARDS!)
c) various attempts of the official disciplines

- Strenghten the links between Originals and Shadows for cards.

- Adding details & behaviors to the characters from my systems

- Think of pre-made specific interactions for all my loci

Day 1

I figure I might as well start somewhere.

Today I timed myself with a deck of cards for the first time (third attempt overall), and successfully memorised it in 9:49.76. I'm quite astonished I made it under 10 minutes, and it's really encouraging, although I didn't time recall.

My main issue wasn't creating the images or remembering what card came next in recall, it was just trying to remember what card goes to what image in memorising. I had a lot of trouble memorising the 4 of clubs, simply because I couldn't remember the image of a car.

My Episode of Superhuman Airs Tomorrow Night!

Last year I was lucky enough to take part in the second episode of Superhuman, which will be airing tomorrow night at 8 pm central! You can see my face flash across the screen for about a tenth of a second in this video. I do a solo challenge alongside 4 other contestants doing their own unique challenges, and then the judges and audience pick a winner. It was pretty amazing. Cathy and I got to meet Mike Tyson and Christina Milian!

Flash Profile with Chinese Memory Athlete Su Zehe

When I was in China this March, I had the chance to do a short interview with Su Zehe, who just won the Philippine Open and broke the images world record. It's more of a bullet-point profile.
