|12:49 pm - World records aren't written down for ADF study program material: this is for the best|
Last night, I finished the ADF Structure, Customs, and Policy course, four days before my self-imposed due-date. I decided to clock the total amount of time I spent writing it, since I'd actually heard people say that it can be done in two hours. I admit to not being overly happy at the dismissive nature of that, especially since people hadn't actually done it at that point.
It ended up taking me 3 hours and 15 minutes, all told. I hit two hours when I finished question 7. I'm pretty convinced that two hours was a bit of an exaggeration: even with the advantages I had (I wrote the course and knew the subject matter really well). (Besides, it may expand if this gets returned to me for further work, as often happens with submissions.)
I'm happy that I haven't been recording the amount of time I've spent on some other courses: the amount of time I spent on Magic 2 and Divination 2 alone is frightening.
I do need to thank Red Earth in Atlanta, GA; Silver Birch in Australia; and Ocean's Tide in Rhode Island, as well as Brandon in Japan and Jeremy in Chicago for their help on Requirement 9.
I am remaining right on schedule, however. The important thing, I suppose, is to stay on my schedule: it'll be a while before it gets graded and returned, I have a feeling.
Next up? Trance 1, due at the end of the month. I'm really struggling with the last requirement.
Well, it seems it's been since March that I've done a LiveJournal meme, so I figure it's about time for another:

Very few memes catch my eye (and I rarely have time to waste on most of them), but I can appreciate this one.

Ehm, does that mean I won't have to send it by airmail? That would spare me a week. I was of the opinion that they require a printed copy.
We're moving away from that. The next version of the FAQ will not request printed copies.
Really? Good for the environment! So will you want the printed version from me if I submit it till the end of the year, or not?
