Stuff & Things 2/2
:: I passed my final Associate in Claims exam last Friday. This means I can put "AIC" behind my name in my work email signature. I studied pretty intensely for the final exam of the series and I didn't feel very confident going in, but I survived and now I can take a break before working on another designation.
:: Between Monday morning and Tuesday afternoon, Sean and I changed our wedding date three times. After proudly putting down our deposit (which was more than we had anticipated because I didn't read things correctly), we found out our musician wasn't available on that day. So we tried the Friday right before that. But then we ran into issues with our venue space and timing. So we moved the date once more to two weeks earlier. It was a roller coaster, and I'm glad at least the date, venue, and entertainment are settled. Now to put the rest of the pieces together ...
:: I have mixed feelings about all the people saying, "Facebook is too political now. We should make it fun again." Then they post some quiz or fun meme. Yes, the political posts are heavy and numerous. But the posts (at least the ones on my feed) are about issues that affect real people, either now or in the future. I don't want people to be silent about their concerns. I think we can find a decent balance between the fun and informative on social media.
:: I am considering starting a series of posts about things Sean says. Kind of like Steph's. Because sometimes he's really funny. Just last night, he said, "you know I like to stay up to date on all things retro." Um, what?
:: This week has been super stressful (see item number two, which was only about half the drama of the week). Tomorrow night, we are going out to see one of my favorite musicians. He might also be playing our wedding. Heh. Any guesses? Here's a hint:
What's up with you this week?
