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

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 […]

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 […]

Update: Three Classes, My Study Schedule, and Midterms

October 10, 2012

Update 1: Three Classes This “three classes” thing is harder than I thought it was going to be. I wish I had an extra hour or two a week to devote to each of my classes, but I’m already spending most of every night I’m not in class studying, and most of every weekend, so […]

Update: I got an accounting job!

September 24, 2012

Just a quick run-by update: I got a job in my current office as an Accounting Clerk 1. It never would have occurred to me to apply because I’ve only been going to school for my Masters of Accounting for (now) four weeks, but the head of the accounting department called me into her office […]

September 18, 2012

I hope you all had a great weekend. I spent the weekend doing homework (duh), a few chores (laundry! dishes!), and watching How I Met Your Mother on Netflix with my husband when I couldn’t look at my books any longer. (I also maybe watching How to Train Your Dragon on Friday when I got […]
