July 7th? Are we the only two taking it? This sub feels like a ghost town.

Stressing out with studying right now. Working full time and having no study hours at work sucks. I'm in an actuarial position too.

You can do it, ToBean! Which day are you signed up for?

I just can't wait for an eight-week break! (I get the feeling that Kadsura doesn't know what that's like though.)

You can do it on a Saturday? I had no idea.

Good luck in the run in!

July 11th. Taking a couple of personal days before my exam. I also have 4th of July to study. This last month of studying is stressful.

I budgeted 5 days of PTO for additional studying before the exam, but I just haven't been able to bring myself to use them. I keep thinking how great it would be if I could use them after the exam instead. I'm sure as my uneasiness increases they'll look more and more attractive.
