How to Hold me accountableEdit

It should be pretty clear and specific what I should have done for each meeting, although I may end up switching things around (especially near the end, where it seems I have less to do). To hold me accountable, ask me about the work I'm supposed to have finished; give me a hard time if I haven't done it.
