Image: Trick for remembering X and Y

Need help remembering when to use X and when to use Y when graphing?
We discussed two methods in class:
Method 1: Remember X goes a-"cross" and the base of the letter Y goes up and down
Method 2: Use the rhyme "X goes to the left, Y goes to the sky" 
The image at this link puts a visual to the second method.
