Train Your Brain in the Memory Palace —Anastasia Avvakumova
Memorizing many things in a short amount of time can be a challenging task. One excellent trick for this is the memory palace method, which you may know from the TV mystery Sherlock. Here's how it works: First, choose your palace. This should be a familiar place, like your bedroom. Take note of any objects that stand out. These items will be your "memory pegs." Next, connect each peg with something you want to remember. Let's say you have a list of things to do, the first of which is to call a friend. If your first memory peg is a chair, you might picture your friend in the chair juggling smartphones. The more unusual the image is, the easier it is to remember. Keep going until every item on your list is connected with a peg. When it's time to recall the items, just think of the palace and the pegs. Next time you need to remember something, give this method a try. After all, if it works for one of the world's greatest detectives, it can work for anyone!

At the Adulting School, people can learn how to network, write a resume, and balance a budget. 在「轉大人學校」裡可以學習如何發展人際關係、撰寫履歷以及平衡預算。
These classes change every month, and like the regular classes, they're always related to the school's "six essentials": wellness, DIY, work, money, community, and relationships. 這些課程每個月都會更換，而且就像一般課程一樣，都跟學校的「六大基本知識」：身心健康、自己動手做、工作、金錢、社區和人際關係有關。
