I feel like I've forgotten how to smart good as the days have gone on. Generally I feel the only way to fix it is to keep on exposing your mind to stimulating activities or information that interests and engages you personally. It's hard to go dumb when your brain isn't numb. Books, TV Shows, Games, generally so long as you don't fall into a schedule of monotony and remaining unintroduced to new things, your brain should do pretty okay.

I recommend you learn a new language if you have the time. Duolingo is free and pretty easy.

I did for about a year after graduating. Literally did nothing that required any critical or creative thinking. Started learning a new language and felt my mind sharpen back up. But yah, feeling my mind slip was an awful feeling.

And yes, reading helps. Or try and find something that interests you that you havent learned and learn it to the best of your ability. Or do anything that requires thinking that at the same time isnt monotonous. There's actually a lot you can do. xD It's just usually not that fun/exciting and you have to kind of just remind or push yourself to do it.

I feel like my Math and Science knowledge is steadily increasing while my spoken English is becoming garbage.

i recently graduated and honestly left school feeling like i learned nothing though. meh


High school or college?


college. was a psychology major with a philosophy major, so not very great job prospects. even though my grades were good, you need experience these days. school is all i'm good at, it's depressing >_<

Once you leave school you adapt to the skill set needed for your work, and what you don't use can get lost.

My Grandpa always said "If you're not using it, your losing it." Maybe reviewing your old class notes might help. You can also see if your local library has any old college text books.

Nope. Just keep your mind active and try to learn something new everyday.

Suggestions are learning a new word everyday, picking up music theory and an instrument, or learning a new language.
