my head is swimming with numbers.

I have awful memorization skills.
I'm a person who struggles with those matching card games. The ones where you put all the cards face down and try to match them up.
I could never do them. Ever.
Since I would always forget where all the cards were.

This really hurts when I'm studying for tests.
Because I can't remember any of the dates.
Right now, I'm trying to review my notes for a History test on the Pre-Civil War period.
And I'm so frustrated because all the numbers in my head aren't lining up with the events.
The only date that I've got down in my head is my birthday.
And sometimes that gets fuzzy too.
Which only shows how much of an airhead I can be.

I apologize for taking this out on you guys.
I'm just not having a good week.
I think I could use a nap. Toodles.

Ahh I have a terrible memory as well. :l TERRIBLE. TERRRRIIIIIIIIIBLLLLLLLE(haha).
It's because I stress a lot. Stress kills the part of your brain for memory. So, yeah.
...I have too much stress.

i have a horrible time memorizing dates too, either birthdays or when-this-event-in-history-happened dates. to get by, i use mnemonics or i make up a song. seriously, it helps. good luck on your exam. :)

I have the worst memory when it comes to learn a bunch of dates. :(

this is why i'm super grateful that my school didn't have History as a subject from 7th grade onwards.

Jodie-Ann: Stress is no good.
You should do yoga.
And drink tea.
And sniff those herb things that destress you.

Ishashime: Thanks! =]
I hate tests. Eeeeek.

Maryam: I'm bad at phone numbers too.
And thanks!

Furree Katt: WHAATTT?! You are so lucky.
