Milestone: Second week of Fall 2013 already done

August 30, 2013

It was summer, and then I blinked, and now the second week of fall semester is behind me. Yikes. My two classes this semester are awesome! Thing 1: They are both cross-listed with undergraduate courses, which means the pace of the classes is a little slower and there’s not as much homework (compared to my […]

Resurfacing, or Summer Classes are INTENSE

August 19, 2013

So, I haven’t updated this blog all summer. You might have noticed. It’s not that I didn’t want to, I just… couldn’t quite find the time. It turns out that taking Managerial Economics online in the summer means cramming 17 weeks of class into 8 weeks. Which was… fun. Instead of updating my blog with […]

If You’re Going to take Tax at CU Denver…

August 2, 2013

… Take it with Sarah Knight. (The school lists her by her married name, Harding, but the rest of the world uses her maiden name.) She’s a practicing CPA, so the class is only offered in the Fall, but so far it’s right up there with one of my favorite classes I’ve taken at CU […]

What a difference four years can make…

April 30, 2013

In January of 2009, I was at a pretty low point. The “Great Recession” had just happened, I had been laid off from my job, and (for a whole host of reasons) my husband and I had recently moved in with his parents. I wasn’t depressed or anything, I just wasn’t sure where my life […]

Update: My Course Options for Summer 2013

March 20, 2013

It turns out that BUSN 6620 – Applied Economics for Managers, is one of the courses required for my Masters in Accounting Program. So that will probably be the class I end up taking this summer. In addition, the fact that the course is only offered online might be a benefit this summer. I may […]

My Course Options for Fall 2013

March 20, 2013

I just found out that enrollment for the Fall 2013 semester opens the first week of April. Yikes! In an attempt to be prepared for picking my classes, I’ve taken a look at the schedule for fall and have scheduled an advising appointment, just to see if the graduate advisers have any insights. My Course […]

My Course Options this 2013 Summer Term

March 20, 2013

Accounting Options Unfortunately, there are no Accounting courses offered this summer term that I am eligible to take (or even interested in, really) due to the necessary pre-requisites. So that’s disappointing, but not really a surprise. Other Options I do need to take some business classes to meet the CPA Exam requirements for Colorado, so […]

Of Studying like Crazy and Getting Sick from Stress

March 19, 2013

This past Thursday I had a test for both of my classes. Since I knew that my Financial Accounting class was going to be over a lot of material (6 chapters!), I decided to get started studying early. Friday night (two Fridays ago, now), I hunkered down at my desk and started working on the […]
