In 1.5 hours, it will be September. September will be interesting.

Andrew and I have issued mutual challenges to each other. I find it exceedingly difficult to rest, logging between 3-5 hours of reluctant, intermittent, and often discontinuous sleep per night on average; consequently, every day this month I must get 6 consecutive hours of sleep (under extenuating circumstances, 2 stints of 3 hours each may be accepted). He has a difficult time asking for help; consequently, every day this month, he has to write a letter to somebody asking for something (it may be as simple as advice). We will keep each other accountable with daily emails.

We're not quite sure what this will do to us. Yay, friends! They help you be educationally masochistic!
