Memo to myself: Skip the LONG breaks
I'm going to avoid long breaks from Go in the future. It strikes me that the level of mental entropy is too great. As I expected, I've struggled in my recent matches. If I lacked determination or love for this game, I'd become discouraged very quickly.
Coming up this week, I hope to do a write-up on what I learned about Kuroki Goishi Ten's stones; one of the things that I was able to discover during my break. Start saving up your money. You might become obsessed with buying a set someday!
