Memory Tip: Use a Smartphone

Photo Credit: Apartment TherapyHave you ever circled a parking lot many times in search of your car? As a busy graduate student, you may find it easy to forget simple things like where you parked when you are trying to reserve your brain power for things like solving complex algorithms for your research.

Apartment Therapy recently posted a helpful article called, "10 Snapshots You Should Keep in Your Phone's Photo Album." One of the snapshots you should take is your parking space. I snapped a photo of my car and the surrounding parking lot signs (G3 and F2) when I left my car in an airport parking lot for a week. When I was dropped off at 5 in the morning by the airport parking shuttle, I was too tired to think straight. Luckily, I pulled out my cell phone, found my car photos, and I was able to find my car in less than a minute.

Check out the 9 other things you should record using your phone's camera:
