Phew! Just taking a study break at work. I have a little over two months until I take my seventh actuarial exam, the Group and Health Advanced exam, and feeling ok about it. I’m not as further along as I’d like to be, but I wanted to be super far ahead so I guess I’m just slightly ahead of where I was last year. But I have excuses. This summer has been a big traveling summer for me. I took three trips to Philly (for friends’ weddings), one trip to Portland (to visit family), and one trip to the San Francisco. I went up there to ask my girlfriend’s dad for her hand in marriage and he approved! Most memorable moment: being seated at the far end of a long rectangular booth opposite him in an almost empty steak restaurant. He was far away and I didn’t know if I should move closer to him but I eventually got up to sit closer. The meal was quiet and it wasn’t until I managed to eat half my fish and chips that I was able to declare my love for his daughter… Now I just have to get a small circle.
