About me: 

Hey there, I'm Bateman.

Memory techniques have deeply fascinated me for a time, so I read every book I could find on them, every article online, and every forum thread. I started using them, practicing with them, then adapted them to my needs. Now, they're mostly used for memorizing specific notes that I take for myself whenever I read something that is both useful and actionable. They also help with organizing knowledge that I already have, memorizing people's names(used to be terrible at this), relaxation, visualization and other pursuits.
