Sorry I have been MIA

Hey guys,

So it looks like I haven’t blogged in over a month! OOPS! I would like to blame this on many things but the main reason I have been MIA is that there is not enough hours in the day for me to get everything I need to do done. And yes I know everyone in the world gets the same amount of hours per day and I love it how people says “You have the same amount of hours per day as Beyonce” or however that saying goes but little do people realise that Beyonce has a buttload of people working for her to help her get all her stuff done! Whereas me and all of us mere mortals only have ourselves to rely on to get our stuff done. So all that being said I decided, last week, that I needed to drop a unit to save my own sanity. And yes, before anyone says anything, I know census date has been and gone and that I have now incurred a financial and academic penalty but is it really worth me losing my mind over? I think I bit off more than I could chew when I decided 4 units was a GOOD idea to start with for my very first term of uni. I was all like “Oh yeah, I got this, I’m gonna rock this term!” but I was busting my brain and seriously having no life to do it. I was literally spending all my time in front of my laptop or with my head buried in a textbook, I had no time for anyone!

So, now that I have dropped a unit (I’m down to 3) I still don’t have A LOT of spare time but at least I have a little bit. At least now I can spend some time with my husband lol.

Ok having said all that I am off to bury my head in a textbook!

 

 

I’m getting on a plane & never coming back!

I think I have finally finished my assessment. I feel like I have been doing this assessment for 1000 years! Hopefully I am done but if you want to read it and give me feedback you are more than welcome to.

During my time doing this assignment I have lost faith in myself many many times. I have felt like dropping this unit on more than one occasion but alas the census date has been and gone. But then I got the days when I felt like I was on top of it, when I felt like I was finally understanding the accountanese.

I’m glad I am doing this unit because it is pushing me out of my comfort zone (something I don’t leave very often).

Until next time peeps, I will continue to give myself little pep talk!

Enjoy being bad ass people!!!!!

Accounting – not as boring as I thought!

I have been slaving away trying to finish my draft for Assignment One by 3pm, yes 3pm Perth time instead of 5pm which I feel thoroughly miffed about. How is it far we get 2 hours less time than everyone else? Β One of the many joys of living on the West Coast I guess :). Anyhoo, I have finished Steps 3 – 5. Still working on Step 6 (there is so many good blogs to read and soooo little time).

I figured I would upload Steps 3 – 5 here in one central location so they are easier for you all to find πŸ™‚

If someone had asked me this time last year if I would ever find accounting interesting they would have been met with a resounding “do I look like a numbers geek to you?”. But I can gladly say now that accounting is surprisingly interesting. Definitely not just for numbers geeks (unless, of course, I am a secret numbers geek?)
