Mytholology: Greek Gods, Goddesses and representations and such
Religion: Judaism, Muslim and Buddhism
Art: Famous Artists and paintings
Civil Rights Leaders: Leaders all across the world who fought for human rights
Music: This is pretty easy, I just need a vinyl record player

I need to start reading already. I just looked over what I wrote and there is a ridiculous amount of spelling errors. I am an idiot.

There are lots of "theories" about human memory. One of them is about repitition and 28 days. If you force yourself to do something every day for 28 days, it will become a habit and you won't have to force yourself to do it anymore. I'm not so sure that's true; I was forced to make my bed and straighten my room every day when I lived home with my parents, from the time I was first old enough to start til I moved out at 18. I don't make the bed now. On the other hand, I don't move much when I sleep so the bed isn't untidy in the first place.

Another one is that you can hold 10 new pieces of data at once. If you put in 11, the first piece drops off. So if you're trying to memorize dates...

You can memorize up to 10 at a time, maximium. If you try to memorize 11, the first thing you tried to stuff in your brain will pop out and you won't remember it.

I can't remember more than 5 things at a time, so I don't know if the maximum is true since I've never been able to reach it

It's 7, more or less. Some people can't do 7, some can do a bit more.
