So, after many trips back to school, much soul searching, a handful of interviews, and many entry-level/student jobs, my role at work just changed to Financial Analyst. Not Finance Student, or Accounting Assistant, or Junior Analyst, but just straight up Financial Analyst. It feels really weird, like I still consider myself a know-nothing student.

It looks like I might even be getting a trip to Montreal to meet with our sister-studio's analyst team and to get some sort of training. Like, paid for by the company. I never fathomed that I'd be the kind of person to have a job where I'm going on business trips. It's messed up, and awesome.

Now no one tell my boss that I have no idea what the heck I'm doing and that I'm a total fraud...shhhh...

Congrats, Kevin!

Does this mean we might catch a game with you on Steam in the near future?

CAN'T.

OVERWATCH.



Seriously, finding a group of IRL people who love playing video games has curbed my free time to play with the usual crowd. You know I <3 you guys though, so our paths will have to cross again.

My hobbies are often cyclical, so eventually my D&D game will dissolve and something will have to fill the gap!

Grats Kevin! I should have a BBA in April and despite doing well in my accounting classes, I also often wonder what I have actually learned. Good to know that persists in the job atmosphere. I wonder if I eventually get my accounting designation, if I'll still feel similarly.

So true.

If you go transoceanic, try to talk them into business class. You'll be able to work on the plane and sleep soundly, so you'll be much more productive when you land. (That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.)

Don't break a sweat. The whole world is faking it. Except maybe a handful of weirdo geniuses.

Congratulations!!

And yes, business trips are a love/hate thing for me. I love getting out of the office, but often the stress of traveling outweighs that pleasure. A necessary evil, but there 'ya go!
