I Think I've Accomplished One Goal
Remember my goals for the year? Well, I think I got a job already. It isn't finalized, so I shouldn't even say anything because I know I'll jinx it. BUT, I think I have a job working part time for the Husqvarna Viking Sewing Center near my house. It's only part time, but I'm very happy with that since I don't have a nanny and really don't want to have to get one. Plus, I am taking some accounting classes and they take up some time, too. I took three accounting classes in college and really wanted to be an accounting major, but for a million reasons--or excuses depending on how you look at it!--I took the easy road and graduated ASAP. I have always wished I had changed my major and stuck it out with accounting because it's a MUCH more marketable skill than technical writing, not to mention more profitable. There's a lot of upward movement with accounting. With technical writing there's only lateral movement. I got A's in my accounting classes when I was in college, but now I find myself struggling with Chapter 3 of financial accounting, which is supposed to be a relatively easy class! What happened to me? Did I get stupid with age? Ah well. Such is life. All I want is to have something I can point to that says I have business skills so if my job with Viking gets finalized I have a good chance at moving up in the company. Keep your fingers crossed for me!!
