day two

things are still well here in the basement.

what i'm learning the most is that my biggest woe when getting rejected while i was searching for my first "real" job -- "so what if i don't have experience? look! i have a degree in this field! did you see that? an education from the sixth best accounting program in the nation!" -- is not nearly as valid as i previously imagined. for better or for worse, job experience goes a looooong way. at least as far as financial accounting goes. i'm catching on not because of anything i learned in ACC 321 or 468, or because of my sheer brilliance [though of course, that helps]; but because hey! i've done this before! this isn't so foreign!

yes, i know this isn't exactly rocket science. but i'm a little slow sometimes.

i'm a little slow lots of times.

(and sorry for being so negative on yesterday's job update post.)
