Welcome to Linux Mint.
All I can say is YUP YUP YUP I love messing with some of these guys in the computer shops here (although in Staples they do have people that use Linux)

My own notes have saved me alot of trouble. I keep a little "Linux journal," and use it to remind myself of why I did this-or-that, what happened when I tried it, whether or not I was pleased with the results, etc. My "Linux journal" has been quite useful, even very recently while I was playing with SalixOS.
Oh, and don't necessarily keep your journal on the computer, lol. Print out new pages and put them in a notebook. Especially if you only have one computer.
