So much of this stuff is pretty late in the game but 1. It was summer (ok technically it’s STILL summer) and I allow myself some leisure in the summer 2. I was out of town for my birthday and 3. I do reviews differently now which sometimes means it might take me a little longer to do them. But hey, we’re here now!
