It pays off if you have a planner just for HOL where you write all that you need to do, or like me, have a Word document with everything listed and due dates that they are by.

September – The Mysterious Ticking Noise

You hurry down the hall to the printing offices and when you enter the room, everybody is rushing around. The printing press is spewing out nonsense, the articles are printed on top of each other, sometimes in English, some Elfish and you think you saw runes in there as well. On top of all that, it’...
