May's First Class Post & Monthly Recap

first class post
First Class Post - because this post is first class!


So this is going to be a little different than usual. I have been working on this post all month, updating it as needed, and then I accidentally deleted it all. And so I'm just going to list everything without commentary, because I cannot remember everything I said before, and it would just take me far too long. So apologies for the less informative post than usual.
