Memory

I'm trying to figure out what is wrong with my memory. I don't have great long-term or short-term memory. It seems like when I was prone to stress at the start of my college years my brain kind of stopped working properly. I'm not experiencing that kind of stress anymore, but my memory is no better. I'm hoping that maybe I just got out of practice in using my brain correctly. I am making another effort at writing in a personal journal, and I hope that pausing to reflect will help me retain memories. I should also review my notes in school to help my memory, but I have not been in the habit of regularly reviewing. If this pausing and reviewing stuff works, I can improve my personal life and my work life. At least if I do forget things and can't review past events easily in mind, the journal pages might provide some kind of association that jogs my memory. I'm looking forward to the results. If I can only remember to write in my journal each day...
