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.
