So, Chapter one was finally read today. A little (okay, a lot) later then I had originally planned, but hey better late then never right?
I have to say that I found that chapter quite painful, having to read paragraphs 1-3 times and still struggling to understand what I was reading. Is there anyone else who is feeling out of their element? With words floating around my head such as equity, revenue, proprietorship and accounting equations I am seriously doubting that I will ever make sense of anything to do with accounting.
One thing that I did thoroughly enjoy was learning about the history of the QWERTY keyboard. Never in my life did I ever think about the placement of letters on a keyboard, but if I ever go to a trivia night I will be set now! This course is definitely NOT anything like I envisioned it to be. But, as much as I am struggling right now, I know if I keep plodding along, it will get easier and before I know it, I WILL be that accountant in a dark room in front of a screen crunching numbers.
If you’re finding yourself struggling as I currently am, leave a comment and hopefully we can find a way to work through it together. Worst case scenario we can hold each other and cry until it all makes sense.
Until Chapter two…
