It’s basically someone saying they have no reason to believe that you cheated. I took the exams by myself but had other colleagues attest that I didn’t cheat. Most of them were either CFEs or lawyers.

Just need to vent: my friend refuses to bring up the topic of covid and how it will likely effect her wedding.

She just had us purchase bridesmaids dresses and I can’t help but feel like it was a complete waste of a few hundred dollars. I feel bad for having these thoughts but I’m over it.
