ARM/ Embedded/ VLSI / FPGA

Received a phone call from a distant relative today. We talked about  design, verification, synthesis and timing closure of CPU Sub-systems. Of course with  a lot more technical words involved. After I hung up the phone, I started looking online. Everything was so familiar yet so strange. It has been awhile since I last touched anything in that category. As a matter of fact, last time I ever played with a chip / board or did anything cool like that was my undergrad days. It was a sad moment. I had forgotten the simplest things.  When did that happen to me??! I used to know ARM7/9/11 like the back of my hand. There was not a single thing I did not know about them and now I had no clue what I was looking at.
Decision :
Need to start reading more.. Just because I don't deal with them everyday at work, doesn't mean I can forget
Decision 2:
Need to spend at least 30 minutes a day innovation and brainstorming.
Decision 3:
Need to touch up on my old stuff..
