Awesome man. My dad loves accounting. I personally couldn't do it for my career, although I'm pretty decent at it. I know one CA that graduated from UBC. Person works overseas now making bank.

And I think the course is just level 1... That will be my final accounting course.

Why I didn't take Drama at all in High School. I have massive bout of stage fright. I don't think I'd be bad at drama, but something about large groups of people gets me physically ill. Though I am a people pleaser and when people are watching me do something, I want to do it well. I can perform under pressure though. It's not an easy song to sing either.

Actually, I think I have atychiphobia.
Should probably do something about that.

Anyways, I'm pretty sure my exam went well! Answered every question in depth and was one of the first ones out. It's been a good week for me...

Man my studies is such a cluster****er right now..

If I don't get into my full time program I can do it part time. But it's 3-4grand more, because 3 of those courses are multiplied by 2, so 6 courses for what would be 3 in full time. 9 classes I would have to take in part time studies, but since they're all in the ****ing evening I would have to take them from January to June(two semesters.)



Now if I get into my full time program it's 9 courses and a few of them are half term courses, and I took 2 already to get some exempted, so it would likely be 8/7-2 for 5 or 6 courses in total from Jan to May. Only cost me 2.5grand, and I'll get the summer off to work more hours.

The only reason why I'm considering part time is cause I had to wait a year to get into my program since I'm doing advanced placement. I can't afford to put my education on hold for another year so I better get in.

Now how they determine if I get in or not is not even based on first come first serve. It's, "who they feel will be the most successful candidate," a.k.a. GPA, and other specialties that I probably won't possess.

Today I hit a seagull with the front of my van while driving over the Granville street bridge, which was very uncomfortable. For the seagull.

Nice. I have Monday, Tuesday (exams separated by less than 12 hours lol), Thursday and Monday. And in between I need to work and pack my luggage so I can catch my plane to Winnipeg after the finals.

The worst I've had was 3 exams in 2 days last semester. About to finish off my 3rd in 4 days tomorrow (seriously, who gives exams on Saturdays?). Then its easy with 2 in the next 9 days.

Had my summer exam on a Sunday night. Even the professor was complaining about it.

That's chill. Honestly I didn't really like the accounting world as I prefer working more with people than just sitting at a desk and crunching numbers. That's why I went for my anti-fraud designation and am looking at opportunities in that area right now. If you ever have any accounting questions though feel free to ask

Thanks man I appreciate the generosity.

Side note there's a kid in this skytrain that's clearly drunk and he keeps trying to hit on some chicks. Who have have no interest in him.. On the verge of telling him to ****. The one day I forget my damn headphones. Urgh.
