Hey fsugirl, I had some further questions for you, could you give some more profile tips and a little bit more into your bidding process?
Thanks a bunch! I hadn't heard of them before.
An additional 40 minutes of driving each day sucks, no one seems to be mentioning this…that's week's of your life each year.
In many cases caffeine is a serious cause of this, you are blasting your adrenal glands with high volumes of a stimulant. Quitting coffee has cured my anxiety.
Alternatively you might also enjoy a glass of wine or a fine doobie on occasion.
Shouldn't you be apologizing for being related to him?

and i'm usually so good about categorizing my posts!April 20, 2015 at 10:46 pm in reply to: Interview question: Do you have any questions for me? #662332
Braskey is correct, you want to ask questions that tell them you are thinking about how you can fit and be the perfect person for the job, everyone else will be asking about day to day things, or month end procedures, be 2 steps ahead.
I read the Journal of Accountancy once/month, and I peruse Another 71…thats about 50% more accounting than I need on a daily basis.
If you're scoring in the high 70% on Ninja, you have a high % chance of coming out with pass, at least when looking back at folks' past results.
I might also mention that some basic things like yard work, and side gigs disappeared for most of the time I was studying (17 months).
certified looney toon.
I didn't do much in the way of annihilation, but I did do about 2 hours/day, and 2-4 on Saturday, and I would bump it up to 3/day and 4+ on Saturday the 2 weeks prior to the test.

I certainly wish I had gone into engineering or computer science. Watching my friends climb the ladder doing seemingly more interesting stuff makes me regret most of my path. That being said I enjoy what I do, but I think I would have enjoyed that an the 50% increase in salary a bit more.
There are lots of opportunities in both paths, but in general CS and Engineering pay significantly more. For what it's worth I work at a small software house, and I'm the lowest paid guy on the totem pole.
That doesn't sound like a family friendly movie…but what do I know.
The starts are aligning just right for me to start my own side business doing just this next year. I'll be writing up some information how it goes probably in the fall, I want to detail what it takes to get rolling (not much), and what psychological obstacles I have had to overcome this year to get there.
I worked on and finished an intro to bookkeeping for small “resale” businesses, i'm a member of a forum that buys, fixes and resells washers and dryers on craigslist. i dabble in that as a side business, and my book is intended to help get these guys (and gals) straightened out from a bookkeeping side of things.
I'm working on a website so I can offer services to these same folks, and starting to actively network again after taking an extended hiatus. It has been a “slow” 6 months easing back into working hard again.
Each company and even city is different…seems to me that $5-10 would be “normal”ish.
Start a business, do something productive. Never blame anyone else.
In response to OP, I wish I had done computer science.
In college at the end of the class we would have to write up professor reviews. I would fill in the bubbles honestly, but on the comments I would write up a plot for the next exciting film of ACTION ACCOUNTANT!!!
Keep in mind I did this at least 6 separate times, and multiples times as a repeat for a proff, I hope someone got a kick out of it.
For intermediate 1-3 I wrote a plot with a retelling of the major accounting frauds. In one particular script we were presented with the final scene of the movie where we pan over the roof of Enron. Action Accountant had a set of both “good” and “bad” books in his arms and is being chased across by armed men and gun fire. He leaps into his waiting helicopter while returning fire. As the helicopter was flying away Ken Lay was left on the roof with a grimaced face while the building explodes.
Unfortunately I don't remember all of the other plots, but they were all as awesome.
I wouldn't be too stressed about summer internships…go to the school of your choice.
If you're working for a small firm, what is wrong with cleaning the office and answering phones? Many hats etc…
In soviet Russia money take you.
I loved CPA Excel as well for whatever it's worth. If I didn't have babies keeping me up all night I think I would have passed all on my first try with it, or if I had used it right out of college.
BILL BRASKY ONCE HAD SEX FOR 120 HOURS, HE WOKE UP AND PASSED FAR THE NEXT DAY.
I studied for 120+ hours and was not successful.
I then studied for another 120+ hours and was not successful
I then studied for about 120 hours and then I was successful.
I however have not ever had sex for 120 hours straight.February 24, 2015 at 5:37 pm in reply to: Is getting two research sims actually a good thing #663513
I think it has be 2 research sims for the past year.
Does it make a difference from city to city, the “northeast” is a pretty broad place.
