    It usually takes about a month for me to remember that it's 2013 instead of 2012.

    Atleast when writing that down with a pen.

    Also, added question in the OP so this wouldn't kinda be of a pointless thread.

    'Murrica my friend, they write the month at the first place.... January/ 3/ 2013

    I already got used to it. However, sometimes it happens that I don't know which year it is at all. It might happen that it takes me a few seconds to remember that it's the "3. March 201x"

    I used to do it well into February back in school.

    But now all I have to do is change the years on my templates and I should be good, as long as I am don't have to physically write it down.

    I think i dated my rent check this morning for 2012 as well.

    Edit:
