Sure thing, and thanks!

 

Right now, things seem to be peaceful. Hopefully, the rest of the wedding plans proceed just as peacefully.

Don't even get me started.

 

Thankfully, my fiance is a fiscally responsible and intelligent person.

 

I still cringe when I look at our wedding expenses, though.

So, I've got a nice, fat, juicy day off today that I'm going to fill with study and wedding-related tasks. Haven't gotten around to any of those interview questions of the day yet. Honestly, it's not even on my radar now, and probably won't be until these two finals are knocked out. I'm going to at least try to get my first question done by this afternoon, though.

May make a few revisions to this challenge. Today has been a rough day. This has been a rough week. I'm not giving up, but damn if that wouldn't be the easiest thing for me to do. And I sure could go for some easy right about now. Or to just crawl in a hole. Whatever man.
