My classes this year aren’ actually that bad considering I only have 4 classes and one of them is only for the second half of the semester at night. I am taking Advanced Accounting, Accounting Systems, Business Strategy, and New Venture Planning. As most of you may have figured out, this is my last semester, so this schedule is great for my anxiety. After all 3 out of 4 of these classes are with my favorite teachers.
Starting this week, I acquired a new job as a paid intern for a local CPA firm. I handed in my notice at my current employer and am now working my butt off. I have been working for 5 days and it will come to a total of 8 days before I get another day off. Two of these days have consisted of me working both places, one in the morning, and one at night. Trying to balance these has been very difficult and, as I write this, I am absolutely worn out. My next day off will be Monday and I am set to return to school that day as well, what a day off. The only thing getting me by is the knowledge that once my notice is up at my current employer, I will finally have weekends off for the first time in 3 years. Yes, you read that correctly; I have not had weekends off (unless I request them off for vacation) in 3 whole years. All of that aside I love my new internship and I am excited for the experience.
What I Am Looking Forward To
I am looking forward to just so many things. Graduation, my new job, weekends free, my own place (end of the year), and more travel are definitely helping to ease the pain of exhaustion. Graduation is hopefully on a bullet train heading my way. May just honestly can not come soon enough. I am ready to walk across that stage, get my diploma, and say peace out to college (for a little while at least). I have made the decision that unless my future full-time employer wants to pay for my Masters, I will not be doing it. Either way I will need at least a year. I’ll need a break for sure.
