What`s up? Sed here!
When was the last time you memorized a song or a short story?
Many of us are against memorizing because we think it is a skill that is unnecessary nowadays.
I find it very very useful, and once you do it your brain automatically remembers the structure of a sentence without even thinking about it.
Make sure you choose a topic or a song that you love listening to.
I like the first sentence on your post body.
Sometimes too much of memorizing of a particular piece of writing can become as repeating unmeaningful words; saying them without really focusing, understanding, and/or concentrating in them. I don't know what that called in English, but it is known as "basem" in Arabic.
