Be fierce...or something  
One thing I hate about tests is that I’m not sure if I’m studying the correct things, or if I’m doing things right.

It’s easier if you’re in the actual classroom and are able to ask the instructor if you’re doing whatever correctly, but in online courses, you’re lucky if you can get a response back within 48 hours.

I’m nervous about the course I’m taking this test in. It’s the Managerial Accounting course, so it’s a little more complex than what I’m used to. When I took my previous accounting courses, I had my ex mother in law in the class with me (she was also taking these courses, but for a pay raise at her job). She was such a perfectionist. She had everything organized to the T, and I was able to bum off of that, and she managed to simplify it to dumb terms for me. Now that I’m taking this course on my own accord, without her around, I’m kind of spazzing if I’m doing things correctly.

I guess I’m doing okay so far. I have A’s in both my accounting courses (the other one is stupid easy, like, it’s for incoming freshman that the university is making me take). Now things are starting to get real with about a month and a half left of the semester.

Where did the time go? I feel like the semester is still fresh and I’m still trying to get used to everything. I guess having to spend $25 a pop for each test I have taken this semester is starting to add up, so my credit card statement is telling me that I’m pretty far along with the semester.

While I have the (blogging) spotlight right now, I would like to take a minute to thank the person whom has discovered the magical effects of caffeine. I have been running off of the power of coffee nonstop since the semester has started. I feel very fortunate that both of my jobs have coffee ready and willing for me to consume. I really don’t think I could survive without it. Keeping up with two jobs and a couple courses, I think I need all the help I can get.

On that note, I better do another run through of this study guide. I am due to take this test in a little over an hour. Right after that, I have to go to Job #2 to train a shift leader, and hold this new kid’s hand through closing. He’s a good kid, just needs to pick up the speed some, because I do not want to spending another Wednesday night there until 11pm, waiting for him to want to excel and be thorough with the sweeping/mopping of the coffee house. I can’t fault the kid for wanting to do good work, but, my patience has its limits.

Oh, and I am doing all this right after working the 9-5 job. So yeah, maybe I should take another quick moment to appreciate caffeine and its products 
