What It Do?

Things seem to have been really busy around here of late, leading to not much time for blogging. I guess that's a cliche, right? But cliches are cliches for a reason, you know?

I pretty much have a new job with a new boss, and my workload has increased a lot. Which actually isn't bad, because there was an awful lot of downtime in my last job. I say I "pretty much" have a new job because at the moment it's technically a temporary detail. Seeing as how the prior holder of this job has moved to another location, however, I think it's mine if I want it. There's also a possibility of working for someone that I have worked with before and liked, but I haven't heard anything official on that one yet.

Aside from work, I'm taking an accounting class this summer. I've been spending lots of time on the weekends reading and doing homework. Having a background in accounting could possibly help me move up the ranks where I work. Like a lot of people, I have always associated accounting with math, and I thought since I'm decent at math that accounting would be a snap. Now I know why everyone I have ever known who's taken an accounting class tells me "It's not math!"

Accounting is definitely weird. It's like learning a foreign language. And words that you've heard before like "debit" and "credit" don't necessarily mean what you think they mean. And a lot of the concepts are not intuitive to me at all. I dunno. I think I can do alright in accounting classes, but I don't think I find it all that interesting. I generally feel like life is too short to do uninteresting things, but I also have a stubborn streak that wants to prove I can finish things that I start. So we'll see what happens.

Hopefully I can squeeze in some camera time (or at least photo editing time since my backlog is enormous) soon.
