Toad’s Weekly Assessment #30-2018

It feels like it’s been an incredibly long week this week and things have been highly stressful. I have a ton of juggling ahead of me schedule wise and not surprisingly, I’m not hearing much in the way of support from my parents. Nothing new there. At all.

  • finished up on the backlog of practice orders of reading I had from the mentoring forum – for now it seems my ticket system works, but I think I may need to give myself a little more time for due dates to accommodate longer lists
