Mr. Badge, I was wondering if there was a specific budget spreadsheet you use? You seem really on top of everything so I thought I would ask!
I actually just built one a few months ago! But mine is very me-specific, so it’s probably more helpful to talk about HOW I built it. I redacted all the personal stuff and put an example spreadsheet here, but since really that’s just a visual with formulas, lemme talk about process a little.
Every year or two I sit down with my last few bank statements and look at what I’m spending money on (I almost always pay on my debit card rather than with cash, so it’s easy to track). I look at how much I spend on each “kind” of thing, and then I dial down a little to how much I really SHOULD spend in order to save more.

Manufactured by Mauser in the late 19th century, the Gewehr.88 was an answer to the Mle 1886 Lebel rifle adopted beyond the Rhine river. It loaded a five-rounds single-column Mannlicher en-bloc clip of 7.9x57mm M/88 cartridges.
In 1905, many would be modified to use stripper clips of the new S-Patrone spitzer bullets - again matching the earlier French innovation - to supplement the stocks of Gewehr 98.
It’s been over a century since the epic and bloody war against Hybern, but a new, unprecedented horror lies in wait to threaten everything the Inner Circle holds dear.
At a mere 17, it seems that the only one who can save them is the Heir to the Night Court, Feyre and Rhysand’s daughter Eleana, but as a creature so vile promises to kill everyone she loves, she must combat the urge to succumb to the darkness herself. The key to success lies hidden within her mate, the bastard born Kaden, who is as oblivious to the bond as her Court is oblivious to the war on the horizon.
With the help of her cousin and warrior Felix, the son of the famed Nesta and Cassian, they will try to save everything they hold dear, hopefully before the darkness takes them all.
Eleana could feel it. She could feel her traitorous heart
pumping the poison through her veins. She could feel it as she was dragged
away. She could feel it as the thing hung her up like it did to those faeries.
She could feel it as it decimated her wings, her precious wings, and heard its
sinister snickers as it arranged them neatly into a box with a lock of her
She wondered if somewhere the eyes of those faeries were in
She could feel her breath become shallow. Could feel the
twitch of her muscles as they started to spasm. Feel her toes barely graze the
floor. Feel the cold breeze.
Eleana could feel everything.
But not once did she see
the creature that was hurting her.

I have a question about French grammar pleaseee help me. I'm learning double object pronoun and I just don't get it & I just can't understand the switches of the pronouns etc.Hopes that makes sense pleaseee help!!!
Hmm, by “switches” of the pronouns, do you mean the changing word order? It might seem a little confusing at first, but if you break it down and figure out how all the rules fit together, it’s a lot more logical!
So first, the various pronouns that we have:
me, te, se, nous, vous
le, la, les
When you use these pronouns, they (almost) always have to go in a certain order (except for the affirmative imperative, which will have a different order) – of the list above, you start at the top and work your way down. So if you have a le and a y, the le will go before the y. Normally this list is written out as a chart, and one memory tip I use is that the number of words decrease as you go right across the chart – in the first column, there’s five words, then in the second, there’s three words, then two, then one and one for the last two columns.
You can start with just one pronoun, and then add more to see where they all fit in. For example:
He sends the present. = Il envoie le cadeau. He sends it. = Il l'envoie. [le + envoie = l'envoie]
Then, if you add another pronoun:
He sends the present to his brother. = Il envoie le cadeau à son frère. He sends it to his brother. = Il l'envoie à son frère. He sends it to him. = Il le lui envoie.
As long as you remember the proper order and know where to place the pronouns in relation to the verb, it’s pretty straightforward. However, you’ll also need to know how to add negation and verb tenses other than the present to the sentence:
He doesn’t send the present to his brother. = Il n'envoie pas le cadeau à son frère. He doesn’t send it to him. = Il ne le lui envoie pas.
Ne and pas go around the verb, and the pronouns are placed in between the ne and the verb – you can think of the pronouns plus the verb as one “package,” and ne and pas go around the entire package.
And finally, if we change the sentence into past tense:
He didn’t send the present to his brother. = Il n'a pas envoyé le cadeau à son frère. He didn’t send it to him. = Il ne le lui a pas envoyé.
Here, the ne and pas go around the “package” with the auxiliary verb, and the past participle goes after the pas. The ne still stays in front of the pronouns, though.
As a side note, remember to watch out for the agreement of past participles, depending on your pronoun! Direct object pronouns that are placed before the past participle agree in gender and number.
The word order only changes slightly when you have an affirmative imperative, and this site explains it pretty well. If you want some other resources, I’ve also found the explanations by tex’s french grammar and CliffsNotes helpful.
This response ended up a bit longer than I was expecting, but I hope you found it helpful! Good luck in your studies!
Amongst the dross, you find a thick carmine volume. It is a ledger, with five columns per page: prominent opponents, their suspected vices, and suitable candidates for performing the corrupting. There are suggested dates - all in the coming year. The final column, still entirely blank, is headed ‘Proof’.’
Sinning Jenny’s Campaign, 1894
Reminder: Sinning Jenny is Not An Ethical Person.
She is planning to deliberately engineer scandals and try to corrupt her opponents. This is not the mark of a good person.
The Chavin were an empire in the Andes which flourished from 900 BCE to 200 BCE – it was building cities and conquering its neighbors more than two thousand years before the more famous Incan Empire set foot outside the Cuzco valley. They are rightly remembered today for their spiritual practices. You see, to get closer to their gods, or nature, they practiced human sacrifice and used hallucinogenic drugs. They also left behind underground tunnels which make animal noises when the wind rises. While we do not know much about the Chavin because they had no form of writing, what we have pieced together from the archaeological evidence is fascinating.
For instance, the Chavin were the first widespread, recognizable artistic style in the Andes. They used metallurgy, and since objects with melted metal begin to appear around this point, it may have been the Chavin who discovered it. They also seem to have little military culture. Chavin cities lack defensive structures. vidence of warfare has been found only in contemporaneous sites that were not influenced by Chavín culture, almost as if those other civilizations were defending themselves via warfare from Chavín cultural influence. All these add up to an intriguing, but still mysterious picture of a dominant culture with vibrant art and religious practices which held sway over its region of the Andes for hundreds of years. “Of all of the ancient cultures I admire, that of Chavin amazes me the most. Actually, it has been the inspiration behind most of my art.” – Pablo Picasso

If the Quincy were forced to write for a "Quincy Bulletin"
As requested by anon. :)
The shinigami have the Seireitei Bulletin, a newspaper whose articles are written by various shinigami. Previously, I imagined what would a “Hueco Mundo Bulletin“ would be like for the arrancar. And next up is the "Quincy Bulletin”! So if Yhwach forced some of his Quincy to contribute serial articles to a newsletter, what would the topic of each of their columns be?
1. Bazz-B: “One…Two…Three…Four…Five!”
Bazz-B’s column gives advice about things that occur in groups of five. Like how to plan a five-course meal. Or how well “Five-Hour Energy” actually works. Or the five best ways to kill someone with fire.
2. Bambietta: “Dealing With Stress”
Her column gives advice about how to deal with stress. Some of the ways don’t involve murder. But not very many of them.
3. BG9: “Data”
He publishes data that he’s collected. It’s actually pretty boring.
4. As Nodt: “Fear No More”
As Nodt writes columns about common fears, and then gives advice about how to overcome them. Unfortunately, his advice is literally always, “Death is worse. Fear that.”
5. Candice: “Battle Fashion”
In her column, she gives tips about things like maintaining one’s hair style while kicking the shit out of your opponent, and what shoes are best for walking through blood.
6. PePe: “<3 Love Advice! <3”
People can write in and ask for advice about their relationship problems. Or, when that doesn’t happen, PePe uses his powers to force people to write in and ask for advice about their relationship problems.
7. Ishida: “Crafting For Quincy”
Ishida’s column provides step-by-step instructions for a number of craft projects designed for Quincy, such as how to fix a cape and how to make a uniform that doesn’t have buttons.
8. Cang Du: “Battle Etiquette”
He seeks to teach his fellow Quincy about proper battle etiquette, like how not to steal somebody else’s fight and how not to murder your own allies.
9. Mask: “Mask de Masculine: UNMASKED”
He basically gives a lot of facts about himself.
10. James: “Reviews of ‘Mask de Masculine: UNMASKED’”
They are not the most unbiased of reviews.
11. Jerome: “The Best Metal Concerts”
He likes to go to them and scream a lot. And then he reviews them.
12. Haschwalth: “Judge Me, Jugram!”
People can send in requests to have Haschwalth judge them about anything - how their hair looks, how their souffle turned out, whether or not they’re doing the Batman voice right - anything.
13. Nianzol: “Clear Your Life of Bad Things Through Avoidance”
Basically, he writes articles that teach people how to avoid various unpleasant things in their life, from racist relatives to filling a plastic bag so much that the bottom rips. It’s an - eclectic column.
14. Gremmy: “Imagine THIS”
He just wants everybody to recognize that he has a better imagination than them.
15. Giselle: ???
Every issue, Giselle prints a column that is just…..black. Like, a solid rectangle of black ink. It’s weird.
