Method of loci (Latin: places) is a memory trick which organizes information for recall based off of visualizations. People use it to remember 65,000 digits of pi, faces, and list of words. AKA “mind palace” on Sherlock.

The Studyblr Advantage

This tool is great for helping store information in your brain. If mnemonics, acronyms, or sheer force of will isn’t working, try this for concepts that you’re struggling with. My example will be how I remembered and recognized 9 different information systems on my midterm today.

It’s best to use a location that is very familiar to you when starting to use this method. I used my parents’ house but your route to school, workplace itself, school, or something similar may be helpful. Basically, you want a place that you can picture yourself walking/driving through in your mind. Got that place?

With your place in mind, locate the concepts in the different rooms and give them explanations as to why they’re there. Relate them to the room, picture them in it, create a story even.

  • Example: I put Business Intelligence Tools (BIT) in the garage because it is a system used to visualize data on a dashboard, like the family cars!
  • More complex example, I put Knowledge Management Systems (KMS) in the kitchen because it used to document things (we put a lot of notes on the kitchen counter) and foster collaboration (the dinner table).

And that’s really it! Hope it helps.



We’ve come to expect impossible, even improbable standards of beauty to populate our magazines and our television shows. It’s another thing entirely to find they’ve invaded our workplace.

Watch Vox’s full video to see the many other ways these unrealistic beauty standards effect where we work.

Time will pass; these moods will pass; and I will, eventually, be myself again.

Who the fuck cares where you went to school or where you work? The question is: Is your everyday experience good, healthy, beautiful? Because I have to tell you, while it might be cool to work for a company like Google, Apple, or The New Yorker, if your job is stupid, stressful and your boss is an asshole, there is nothing good or prestigious about that. While it might seem right to go to a school like Berkeley, if classes are overcrowded and students are nervous, anxious, religious zealots from Orange County, are you sure you want to go there? What’s good about that? To believe in prestige is to privilege abstract, collective impression over palpable, daily experience. To which I say: fuck prestige. Do what serves your everyday vitality.

You want to arm me? Good. Then arm me with a school psychologist at my school who has time to do more than test and sit in meetings about testing.

Arm me with enough counselors so we can build skills to prevent violence, have meaningful discussions with students about their future and not merely frantically adjust student schedules like a Jenga game.

Arm me with social workers who can thoughtfully attend to a student’s and her family’s needs so I. Can. Teach.

Arm me with enough school nurses so that they are accessible to every child and can work as a team with me rather than operate their offices as de facto urgent care centers.

Arm me with more days on the calendar for teaching and learning and fewer days for standardized testing.

Arm me with class sizes that allow my colleagues and I to know both our students and their families well.

Arm my colleagues and I with the time it takes to improve together and the time it takes to give great feedback to students about their work and progress.

Until you arm me to the hilt with what it will take to meet the needs of an increasingly vulnerable student population, I respectfully request you keep your opinions on schools and our safety to yourself, NRA. Knock it off.

There were no sex classes. No friendship classes. No classes on how to navigate a bureaucracy, build an organization, raise money, create a database, buy a house, love a child, spot a scam, talk someone out of suicide, or figure out what was important to me. Not knowing how to do these things is what messes people up in life, not whether they know algebra or can analyze literature.
