Also picked up a pair of cheap hair scissors. At least I can trim around my ears now.
Made it to work with plenty of time to make copies of the quiz. Managed to eat up a lot of time given I only had the quiz and one section of the book to finish. Also utilized the workbook to fill time. A little worried about Monday, but I have the weekend to plan things out.

It's a high altitude city, it sits at a good 2800m.. Which is 600m higher than the tallest peak in Australia, Mt Kosciusko.
