Poems, Rhymes, Acronyms and Acrostics

I swear. I’ll be a 75 year old woman saying “30 days has September, April, June, and November… All the rest have 31 (except February)!”

Does anyone else do this??? I just did. I didn’t want to get the calendar out or even click the calendar button on my desktop, but I needed to know the last date of the month to figure state sales tax on my sales report.

Never Eat Sour Wheat – the four directions. North. East. South. West. An acrostic.

8 times 8 fell on the floor. Pick it up with 64. – multiplication. Rhyme.

I sound like a crazy lady mumbling all these things to myself. It seems to be how I learn and remember.  For as long as I can remember, I’ve been memorizing existing rhymes or making up ways to jog my mind.

M.A.G. – the order of the states of Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia from Left to Right. This is an acronym.

SOHCAHTOA – Sine (Opp/Hyp). Cosine (Adj/Hyp). Tangent (Opp/Adj). – Trigonometry. Another acronym.

What are your go-to’s to help you remember?

What inspires you?
Truly I want to know.
Is it a song or a flower,
Or somewhere new to go?

Is it the beauty of the old,
All fragile, wise, and delicate?
Is it people glittered and shining,
glistening of new friends met?

Is it lifting up the low,
And holding tight the sad?
Is it presenting new ideas,
Being someone’s launching pad?

Whatever it may be,
Wherever you may go,
Be one who inspires,
And leaves another’s soul aglow.
