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 […]

For Questions about CPA Exam Eligibility Requirements

March 18, 2013

A question that has come up for me a lot in the course of going back to school to get my Masters in Accounting is, “Will this course actually help me meet the requirements to sit for the CPA exam, or will it be a waste of my time and money?” To attempt to answer […]

Of really hard classes that are kicking my… well, you know

February 25, 2013

Well, only one of my classes is really hard, but I find that I’m working just as hard this semester (if not harder) than I was last semester when I had three classes. I really thought this whole “two class” thing would be a nice break! Shows what I know… ACCT 6030 – Intermediate Financial […]

Of Classes and Homework, Three Weeks In…

February 6, 2013

Third week of classes just started, and I feel like a bit of a slacker because I haven’t been updating this blog as much as I would like. There’s a good reason for that though: in the first part of January, my husband decided to change careers. So on top of getting ready for school, […]

That scary thing paid off!

January 18, 2013

So, a few weeks ago, I paid my Spring tuition bill on our credit card, in order to earn some extra miles. I was a little worried about the timing of paying for it, because I don’t like carrying a balance on my credit card, and I wasn’t sure when my refund of my students […]

I did something scary yesterday…

January 4, 2013

Yesterday, I paid my Spring tuition bill with my credit card. This is a terrifying thing because it took us almost four years to dig ourselves out of credit card debt, and I haven’t had anything resembling a $4,000 balance on a credit card since then. *deep breaths* So, I know what you’re thinking, because […]

First Semester: Accomplished!

December 17, 2012

As of 9 pm Thursday (12/13/12), I was done with my first semester of graduate school. You would think I’d be thrilled about that, and I am, but when the night ended, I was pretty darn upset. Finals Tribulations My last final of the semester was for my MBA Accounting class. I had been studying […]

Of Missing Class and Registering for Next Semester

November 15, 2012

Missing Class I missed my first class of the semester last night. I didn’t want to (I actually hate missing school, always have), especially because I paid good money to be in class, absorbing the information the teacher imparts during the lecture. I also really didn’t to miss class because it was Business Law, my […]
