Yea man you got to have a break from all the technical stuff. It all starts running together after awhile unless you keep really good notes.
i am taking a break cause i'm being lazy...i never really need it in all honesty...my body might get tired but my brain has yet to quit on me...but i think i deserve 2 days off.
as for my notes...they r almost a book...they get written in 3 stages...
1> rough drafts
2> formulated ideas from rough drafts and comprehensive details
3> eventually making it to my "good" notebook where there r no errors...or re hashing of ideas....only confirmed truths make it here...this is my personal reference manual and one day it'll get converted to a tech book. its 500pages n counting (obviously not all this iscontained in 1 physical notebook)
