I'd like to be sportsjournalist, but I'm too "coloured", so wont be good at it. I'd like to be someone like "Carrie Bradshaw", or just a freelancer, who magazines, newspapers etc. pays lot of money for an article, but don't think my chances are high...:o

well honey, to be perfectly honest with yuo, i don't think yuo'd be suited to accountancy because it's a relentless career - it's the same with lawyers. Tax law and law in general is constantly changing and evolving so it's not a case of taking a few exams, graduating and off yuo go into big wide world to make lots of bucks. It's constant fucking education and learning until the day yuo die, or quit...

yuo need to have drive, and it's quite obvious that yuo haven't because yuo're saying that yuo might do it, might not, not sure, prolly do this, blah blah blah

now in my case i was pushed into it by my accountant tard dad, and i'm not complaining, i'm glad he did. That situation is not unusual. A lot of kids study law because their dad's a lawyer or they study medicine because their parents are doctors and so on and so forth. But my point, is that there is a driving force (in this case, parents) for these kind of careers and sadly, yuo seem to lack this force

Cause at that point you won't be in the cushy lair of college and will be forced to come to grips that you are "grown up". It isn't very fun.

Ok ok, maybe I am just a little depressed since graduations are tomorrow and I realized that three years ago I was having a hell of a time boozing it up my last week of college. I had a hint that the real world wouldn't be fun but didn't fully comprehend it until recently.

So three years ago at this point I was completey hammered and walking to the bar in my graduation cap. Currently, I am sitting at my computer watching the fucking Mighty Ducks one win away from making the Stanley Cup Finals. What the fuck is going on with life?

Oh well, at least next weekend I'm going to get shitty drunk.

Yes I do. I took it once already and bombed miserably. I'm going to go back for it in November or next May. I need to set my ass down and study though. I will pass it. I am too damn smart and good looking to not pass.

Do you know what parts of the exam will be online?

Well, good looks should count damn it. I have seen one too many ugly ass CPA. I should know, I work with them ;)

I don't know what they are doing in terms of computerizing the exam. I have heard so many different things. Now I just throw away anything CPA related. I am overwhelmed by the sheer amount of Becker, Kaplan, etc ads I get. Leave me the fuck alone already.

Oh, and I had to take it to get grandfathered in (in order to beat the requirements for a Masters or 150, I think, credit hours to take the exam). Didn't feel like studying so I went to bomb, and bomb I did.

I tried to ask my prof about it, but she wasn't entirely certain either. But...I have a while to think about it, I guess.

It was like a leper colony at the exam. I haven't seen that many ugly people since the last Ranger game that I watched.

Ah, Intermediate I. The first semi-difficult accounting class. Was shocked to learn recently that my professor from that course and the coolest Accounting professor at the school died last year of cancer.

Well, the additional schooling should help you take the exam and will keep you in the studying mood. Whatever you do, DO NOT take any time off in between like I did. Not a wise decision.

ouch :o don't be too hard on them, accounting is hardly an attractive profession.

yeah, intermediate I wasn't bad. Need to work a little more on cash flows and acquisition costs. Aside from that, not bad at all. Sorry about your prof.

I missed quizzes, showed up late, didn't do homework assignments and still got a C. I was very skilled.

Our final was to do a tax return for a made up family. We were in groups based on alphabetical order. My group should have had our meeting with him last but he made ours first just so I would have to show up on time. If anyone was late or not there we fail. The fucker didn't know what to say when not only was I on time but I was there almost an hour early. You don't challenge me like that.

Well, the second in command (a decent but weasely fucker) got his Masters and said that it is worthless. I tend to agree with him but that will change now with the change in CPA requirements. No one really cared if you got your Masters or not, only if you passed the CPA. I will have my day sometime and those fucks will pay. Good on it.

Well, I am sure that most people do but I am mainly in govermental accounting which wasn't really taught at my college, except for a two day lesson in Advanced. You still have to know the general concepts though but it isn't as cut and dried for me as they teach in the books.

Hell no. Goodwill rules. You know why? Because it is such bullshit. You can basically make up whatever the fuck you want in determining that number. I love having that leeway which is why I loved auditing. Anything that lets you use your opinion is ok in my book.

I liked cost accounting. Was very simple for me although it was the first accounting class that I didn't get an A in (all came down to me choking on a section on the final, one of the first of a few times where that happened to me). I remember that a lot of it was inventory systems like "Just in Time" and shit like that. You shouldn't have a problem.

I laugh though since my friends who were industrial engineers took basically the same sort of course and thought it was difficult. Fucking idiots.

I don't really want to end the idea of some day hooking up with her. I just want to end the uncertainity of it all. Does she like me or was she leading me on the whole time? Stuff like that. Obviously, the rejection sucks hard but its the not knowing that really hurts. I just want an opportunity at finding out.

I never had a principles class so I don't know how to compare them.

I took corporate finance but don't remember a lot about it now. I had the habit of forgetting the useless courses like that after I didn't need them anymore. Probably not a wise thing to do, but I needed that portion of my brain to remember the various Mighty Duck storylines.
