Okay, I have just one question:

How do you have this much time in your life, woman? Do you not sleep?

Haha, it was mostly just that "school" was a joke last semester, so I basically just had three months to do whatever I wanted! ...though the not sleeping thing totally happened sometimes because I was at an interesting part in a book. ;)
