Sorry I haven’t posted anything this week. Training is craaazy. Classes run from the wee hours of the morning till 7pm, so we (all 300 of us) are super pooped by the end of the day. Food? They’ve got breakfast, lunch, and dinner covered (as well as dessert, snack, and far too much coffffeeeeeee). I have not taken any pictures of the food, even though it is surprisingly good, because, I would like to make friends and don’t want my colleagues and instructors thinking, “who is that odd girl who insists on photographing dining hall food?” I hope that’s a good enough reason!
Anyways, training has taught me a whole bunch of stuff already – and not only in accounting! Classes can get boring at times, especially if you’re sitting on your okole for five hours at a time. Not only do you get eye strain from staring at the computer, you also get butt strain from not standing up! I’ve mentioned before in this blog that I do not like to drink. Anything. Aside from: water, tea, coffee, hot chocolate, and the occasional root beer (or pepsi)! I thought training would be like school: classes in the morning, and studying at night.
But apparently this is not true. This is very not true. I’ve recently been introduced to this idea of happy hour. And indeed, happy hour, and the hours that follow, are very happy hours. I’ll leave it at that. I will be here in the isolated suburbs of St. Charles, IL until then 28th, so I won’t have any normal food posts until then…but check back if you want to hear how training is going…last night I had the strangest dream about the client auditing process, walkthroughs and reconciliations – makes you wonder if they’re just trying to teach us accounting or to mess with our minds so that it’s the only thing we can think of all day and all night.
Off to weekend classes and community service now! I just had strawberry yogurt with muesli, watermelon, eggs and banana bread for breakfast. Awesome! And coffee. Cannot forget about the coffee. I’ll see you later on this week, and will be back with NYC food photos the week after. Have a super good day! :)
