Yeah, I'm taking the weekend off after seeing that. I can't make myself study Brehm right now. Just too boring.

I was taken aback, and all I could say was “Huh?” but he kept cutting me off and going “huh? huh? huh?” and closing his hand shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him chuckle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw him trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen Milky Ways in his hands without paying.
The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like “Sir, you need to pay for those first.” At first he kept pretending to be tired and not hear her, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter.

When she took one of the bars and started scanning it multiple times, he stopped her and told her to scan them each individually “to prevent any electrical infetterence,” and then turned around and winked at me. I don’t even think that’s a word. After she scanned each bar and put them in a bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting her by yawning really loudly.
This sounds like a weird dream...

Doesn't make any sense. Plus, Brehm lives in Minnesota.

What will your study strategy be if it gets pushed to October? Surely studying now until then is overkill but stopping risks forgetting everything.

I'm probably just gonna average 30 minutes a day until like June then an hour a day until end of August or so. It's frustrating for me since I feel like at any point now I could study hard for 2-3 weeks and be ready, so I just have to keep maintaining what I know.

That shouldn't be a problem. As actuaries, we are masters of risk.

I'll keep aiming to reach a deep understanding of the material, there's still lots of stuff I don't know so I don't see a reason to stop studying for at least 2 hours a day
