I may or may not have completely forgotten about the existence of this challenge up until about five minutes ago (WHOOPSIE).

But how is everyone going?

we'll be waiting
for the rest of our lives

10 down! Hopefully, will speed up the pace for the last two months? I don't know, we'll see.

How's everyone else doing? :D
