haha, i can't retain large chunks of information either. ap bio is the reason why i didn't go to a better university and ochem was the reason i didn't become a doctor. i just couldn't keep all the reactions straight. doesn't prevent me from living in books, though. what are you reading?
Nothing, it's frustrating because I promise on my future grave that my memory was better.
Hey man, my "gut instinct" (which is what you are looking for) translated that as "eat food" or "read a book." If you want to prevent thoughts like that then I'd prompt the reader beforehand instead of just listing two words as vaguely as possible.
