So I received my start date for Ernst & Young and it's July 13. I'll be in Chicago for about 10 days for orientation and training. That threw a wrench in my plans, as I expected to spend all summer studying for the Certified Public Accountant exam and knock out all four tests before starting. I can still do it, but that just means that I have to study for the exam that much more this semester while juggling classes and an internship.

I'm also looking to go for a PhD in accounting after a few years in public accounting. There's a big shortage of accounting PhDs, and given that professors have a much better work/life balance than senior managers and partners in a public firm (especially a Big 4 firm), I want to pursue that route. Now I'm looking into getting a masters degree in statistics (as the PhD program is statistic and programming heavy) before applying to a PhD program. That means I'll have to study for the GMAT exam after finishing the CPA exam.

And yes Dice, the worst tri-Ace does in the next ten years, the better I think the next ten years will be for me.

Damn, and there goes my hopes of tri-Ace never producing another console RPG.

Because their fate is directly tied into yours, and every game they make means your life becomes CURSED once again!!!! 

That must be the reason for such blatant schadenfreude, right?

There is a direct correlation between the success I'm having in life right now and the failure that tri-Ace is suffering from.

I must be the only one glad that tri-Ace is done. I hated most of their games that I played except for Radiata Stories.

Now waiting for Jeigen, Goemon and Fujiko personae.

The Fujiko persona will be a pair of giant boobs in the vain of Mara.

I'm more of a meatatarian and avoid the bread/pasta food group as much as possible.

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.
