Tales of Xillia - every category...by default. It's the only game I played this year.

I lasted five months in retail. Can't wait to start public accounting. I won't have to interact with clients as much and get paid 10x the money. Win/win.

@glassjawsh I text with people who have iPhones and I have an Android phone.

----------

Finals are coming up. I'm on the cusp in almost every class. In Intermediate Accounting II (called External Financial Reporting II at my university), I have a high B. I think a B+ is in grasp if I do well, and if I dominate the test, I can get an A- for the class. An A is statistically impossible.

For my individual taxation class, I'm at an A- now, and need to get a really high A on the final to get an A for the semester.

In my Accounting Information Systems class, I'm around an A- and need a high B on the final to get an A. (Our lowest exam grade is dropped, which is why I only need a B.)

For my Internal Reporting class, unless I royally fuck up, I should get an A in the class.

And no break for me, as I start studying for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam as soon as my books arrive, which should be by the end of finals week.

I'll be working at EY full time starting next summer. It's so relieving to have a job lined up before graduating.

Lucky you. :(
I got me a mall job.  It pays well, at least but the part-time hours kinda stink.

Didn't you say you were in graduate school?

I graduated last year with no job and had to get a job at Home Depot before I went back. I originally got a degree in finance and was going back to do undergraduate classes in accounting before enrolling in the Master's program. Now I won't have time to go in the Master's program (for now) because I have to focus on studying for the CPA exam. First-world problems, I guess.

I can't believe I have 2,000 posts. It seems like I have only made 50 posts in the past five years.

As probably the only libertarian here, I'm glad the Democrats got their asses kicked in the election. Too bad Republicans are so weak and try to score brownie points from the media instead of trying to do what their constituents voted them in to do.

Thanks to RPGFan, I bought a bunch of games and have a huge backlog that will never get cleared. But this site got me addicted to the SMT series, so I'll always be thankful.

I dated a CPA for several years. She still had to put up with asshole clients that: didn't cooperate, had bad files, and didn't like the news.

At least they make 4-5x the pay and get compensated for dealing with people like that.

I'm a Cowboys fan, so I'm still waiting for Tony Romo to retire and for Jerry Jones to step down.

My condolences...

I pay more attention to college football these days because I know Ohio State can actually compete lol.

I got sent home from work early today (and told not to come in until Monday) because I said "Fuck you" to a customer who asked me if I was deaf in a nasty tone. I have a really low tolerance towards customers who act like assholes, which is why my main job at the store doesn't involve me working with customers. But then management had the bright idea of scheduling me to work so early when there are a lot of customers.

In the end, I really can't wait until I get my master's degree in accounting and start working towards becoming a CPA because I really hate dealing with condescending customers.

Haha fantastic!

Question though. When you become a CPA what do you intend to do? You will deal with condescending assholes in every job where you interact with other humans. 

I don't know at the moment, but I'll probably start off in tax accounting.

I know I'll have to deal with those kind of people everywhere, but it's the difference in job titles that I think will make the difference. Right now, (assuming that I didn't lose my job), I'm just a lowly stocker at The Home Depot. Customers always look down on me and act like assholes. There are some nice customers, but the majority of the ones I have dealt with are assholes to me. On the contrary, it's kind of hard to look down on someone who has a profession such as accounting the way people do when you work (barely above) minimum wage in retail.

I'm excited for tomorrow. It's the last day I'm scheduled to work until 4 am. Now that the busy spring/summer season is coming to an end, no more 7pm to 4 am shifts and all of my shifts will be 8pm to 12 am or 9pm to 1 am. What makes me sad is that means school is right around the corner, so that means I need to study for the GMAT even more and start studying accounting again.
