Hard to be sure what is causing this, zakes, as there are so many potental causes --- a wide range of physical illnesses, a range of psych disorders, and simply being distracted by one's studies, so that one is paying too little attention to things like the keys --- so more then a matter of not memorizing them than of not remembering them.
