Today is the first day of my project. I have learned 23 new digits of pi in 2 hours today. In a total of 27 digits.
My goal is to get memorize 50 digits of pi in a week.
I am really worried because pi has an infinite amount of digits and probably when I get to 30 digits I am afraid I am going to forget everything I have memorized.
I chose this project because I want to challenge my brain. I want to make my brain more used to memorizing which will be useful in life. I am looking forward to memorizing pi and train my brain and my memorization.

Today is the second day of my project. It was quite bad because I nearly forgot 12 digits of the pi. I have learned 14 more digits of pi which is 41 digits of pi overall. I was quite focused in my work but kind of frustrated in the memorizing part. The most fun part is also forgetting the digits, it is fun because we get to work harder and working hard is actually fun.
I have demonstrated my thinking skills. I demonstrated my thinking skills by memorizing pi by doing different methods. Like the part method example: 3. 1415 926 535. Or in the repeat method Example: 3.1415…,3.1415…,3.1415… these show I have different thinking methods.
I also demonstrated being a risk-taker by trying to do something no else can think I can do. I also showed being a risk-taker by also trying to do something that is hard. Try to memorize pi.

Today is the third day of my project. It was bad like yesterday. It is was bad because I also forgot more digits of pi and it went on for a long time so I thought I forgot pi and I should have given up. But then I finally came back to the top. I have learned 6 more digits of pi which in total 47 digits.
The most challenging thing today is memorizing new numbers while trying to keep the other numbers. In other words, I keep memorizing new digits but always keep forgetting the old digits and I always skip some numbers on the way.
The most enjoyable thing is also forgetting numbers It may be bad to keep forgetting digits but it is also good because it will make you more determined and more focused.
Another enjoyable thing is actually testing. Testing is fun because someone tests you and it is fun when they correct and it is fun when testing me. It is also fun because I can see their faces when they are surprised to hear all the numbers in my head.
By the end of tomorrow which is the end of Thursday. I will have already have memorized 53 digits of pi. I chose this because today I only memorized 6 more digits. So I think tomorrow I will also memorize 6 numbers again. So this is my goal for tomorrow.

Today is the 6th day of my project. Now I have memorized 61 digits of pi. I have memorized 14 more digits in pi in 2 days. That means around 7 digits each day. I will try to memorize 65 digits of pi because it is harder for me to memorize numbers now because lots of numbers fill my head.
People always ask me if memorizing pi is fun or if I ever get bored. The answer is that sometimes I might feel bored but if I revise and forget numbers then it gets challenging and more fun because you can actually have faults.

Today is the 7th day of my project. I have unfortunately did not memorize any more digits. I still memorized 61 digits but I at least became more fluent. I am now 2x faster at saying all of the numbers and all of the numbers are organized in my brain.
I also did not have a lot of time because I was disracted by my friends. So that is the thing I am going to improve on.
