Week 42 - Day 2

Had a quiz today. Should have had it on friday but with so many formulae to learn, the class begged to be allowed to study over the weekend and do the quiz on Monday. The instructor agreed.

I did not study as much as I should have. Out of the 4 questions, I aced one, did some parts of two other questions and left the 4th question page blank as I totally forgot to read that chapter over the weekend. I will be lucky if I even get 50% on this quiz.

We have a mid term exam on Friday this week - covering all of last weeks and this weeks work. Then there are 2 more weeks of accounting to get through.

I am hoping I can get a final grade in the 70s at least. That will not bring my average down too much.

Week 41

Week 41

The first week of Advanced Accounting.

Now we are doing amortization in more details including tangible and intengible assets. Also calculating and recording bad debts, analysing financial statements, doing partnership and corporations accounting, as well as shares and bonds accounting.

I really so NOT like accounting. Not this advanced stuff.
I am ok to trial balance and A/R & A/P. I always had trouble with depreciation (before it was called amortization).

I never was much of a numbers person. I have always preferred words to numbers. Which is why I keep so many blogs.

Stil waiting for the Quickbooks final grade.

Week 40

Week 40

The second week of Quickbooks. Still waiting for my final grade

Week 39 - Day 7

Its the middle of Easter today - Saturday to be precise. I had no school yesterday (Friday) so I took my son to the movies. We went to see the cartoon movie Monsters and Aliens. I actually ended up enjoying it a lot.

I also have my final grade for Accounting Fundamentals. I got 79%. Iam a little disappointed. I feel that it should have been higher. I am going to have to work harder on my Accounting, and to keep my GPA up. Advanced Accounting starts 9 days from today. I want to graduate wi8th distinction - that is, with a GPA in the 80s overall.

Next week I have to be back in school on Monday (13th) doing the second week of Quickbooks. While my son gets to stay home on Easter Monday (because all the public schools, and daycares are closed) I have been able to switch my class for that day, so that I do the afternoon class, rather than having to get up early and being out the door by 7.15 AM as we usually are.
