Need some advice...especially if you are a CPA!

I am currently working on my Accounting degree... I have one more class and then I am done!! WOO HOOO!

My goal after graduation was to get my CPA license. In the state of Florida in order to get your CPA license you need 150 hours of schooling which I will have when I am done and 1year experience working under a a licensed CPA. After you take and pass the test you have 3 years to complete those requirements.

I started my current job in order to get my experience. I have been here for 15 months. However, I recently found out that your year does not begin until you are eligible to sit for the exam... which I was not able to sit until this past December. So I only have 4 months of the 12 months of experience I need.

Well if you read my blog... you know I absolutely hate my job... I was not meant to be an Auditor for the rest of my life. Headhunters keep calling me with all of these amazing job offers doing what I know best. Property Accounting. The problem is that none of these companies have a CPA working for them.

So do I work at my current job for 8 more months of complete misery... Or do I take another job... and figure out later when I can get the rest of my experience?

I was hoping the next job I take would be my last job... or at least somewhere I can stay for a long time...

Any suggestions? I am having a really hard time with this decision and I don’t know what to do.

Weekend NSV!

So a few months ago... Stephanie gave me size 16 Jeans!! I didn't think I could fit into them yet, but then I noticed that the jeans I was wearing on Saturday were way too big for me... Like had I work them out in public I would have been sporting some serious plumbers crack... So I decided to try on the jeans she gave me and man they fit perfectly!! It was really nice to see myself go from a size 20/22 to a size 16!

Also my boss told me on Friday that it was time for some new work pants. So instead of going to buy expensive pants like I always do, I tried to Goodwill. Normally I get really discouraged as everything there is either too big or too small. But not this time. I was able to find a nice pair of workpants for 3 bux!! Woo hoo!

10 Things Thursday!

  1. I recently turned in a 12 page paper about pension plans. It was the worst paper I have ever written in my entire life… Somehow I got an A. I am thinking my professor did not read it. Thank god!
  2. Yesterday was my last class for the semester… Next week is finals time!! So happy to have a break.
  3. My lease is up in 6 weeks… and I am freaked out that I have not found a place yet.
  4. I was recently awarded a scholarship for Graduate School… I really do not know what to do. I do not think I can handle another year and a half of school. I am so burnt out.
  5. So I thought work was going to mellow out after 1st quarter deadlines… ,man I was wrong. I think one of my supervisors is out to get me. She loves to pick on me.
  6. What ado you do when your boyfriend does not like one of your friends? Someone who has been your friend for 9 years. Do you hang out with them anyway? Or what? This has never happened to me before so I feel quite weird about it.
  7. My weight loss is completely stalled out this week… and its really frustrating. Funny how when you eat well the scale does not want to budge.
  8. I really need a vacation… any ideas on where to go?
  9. The older I get the grayer my hair is getting… pretty bad when I am 31 and my hair is growing in white… ACK! Can not wait to get my hair done next week. Will post poctures!
  10. Happy Thursday!! Time to get back to work!

BYOC - Bring Your Own Crazy!

It’s Friday, my Skittles! That means it’s time for BYOC. Bring Your Own Crazy! We answer 5 questions in an effort to get to know each other better and to give our blogging brains a break! Copy to your own blog and enjoy!

1. Whether you’re a parent or not….what do you think the appropriate age is to talk to a child about “the birds and the bees”?

I have never really thought about it actually, since I dont have children. I am thinking at least by middle school.

2. What’s the color scheme in your bedroom?

Purple and Beige in my current apartment... normally my room is all different shades of blue. Blue makes me feel calm.
3. What kind of shampoo and conditioner do you use on your hair?

Sleek and Shine from my hair dresser.

4. And since it’s nearly summer time…do you paint your own toes, go some place for pedicures or not paint your toes at all? What’s your fave toe color?
I get a pedicure done... I usually like to go dark on my toes.
5. Repeat question: Summarize your week!

This week was good... I hit my goal I set for myself this month, I finally got into the class I need for graduation. Work has calmed down and WW3 ended with my roommates.
Now if only I could blog more often, life would be complete.

10 Things Thursday!

  1. I am so glad that deadlines are over at work… at least until June so I have time to breathe!
  2. The budget cuts in the school system are really upsetting me. I was supposed to graduate this semester, but due to budget cuts I had to wait until the summer to graduate. However, the one and only class I need to graduate is full…. I really hope there is a way to get into my last class.
  3. I can not believe the semester is almost over. Finals start in 20 days!
  4. World War 3 is currently happening in my house. I feel like I am stuck in the middle of a bad reality show!
  5. I lost 2 lbs this week!! WOO HOO! Feels good for the scale to be moving in the right direction after it stalling out for so long! I might actually reach my goal I set for myself.
  6. I am really looking forward to Easter dinner at my mom’s house. It has been a while since she has hosted a holiday dinner.
  7. My neck is starting to feel better from the car accident. This means I am totally going to the gym tonight!
  8. I went out last night to blow off some steam… Although I had a really good time. I am super tired this morning L
  9. I have a 20 page paper due in less than 2 weeks and I haven’t even started it… god I am a slacker.
  10. Things are finally starting to be really good with my boyfriend. I think the adjustment period of moving in together is finally over!! Apartment hunting on the other hand is not fun… we can’t seem to agree on where we want to move!

Happy Thursday everyone!
