Welcome aboard!

I have no plan on studying yet. I know I'm getting ASM to double up with TIA for this sitting, and I think I'm just going to start from scratch.

The only problem is I can't get reimbursed for roughly another month, so I'll have to float it myself till then. I want to buy a TV this weekend instead so ASM might not be coming this week.

I was thinking I'd get TIA this sitting... I did ASM for August but didn't really put in the effort towards the end that I should have. I won't get reimbursed for TIA though so I'm going to start ASM soon and see how I feel around mid december. If I'm just not getting something I'll get TIA to sure things up.

Dave is great and I fully recommend TIA. The only reason I'm adding ASM is because I'm afraid I'll say "I already saw this one" and not pay full attention to the videos.
