I know that when my peers find out about this, that will be their first response. Why would I waste my time? Yes, I’m a millennial, a Gen Y, or whatever other label you’d like to apply. But what none of them will ever understand is what it’s like to abruptly change career paths at such a late point in the game. Sure, college students change majors all the time. Most, however, do so before graduating. What can I hope to gain by this? An outlet. A better understanding of myself by ranting and reflecting in the most public of ways. But more than that, I want to help others. Other accountants just starting out. Other students whose career paths are as convoluted as mine. Over the coming months, and hopefully years, I will post about every aspect of the life of a new accountant. Stick around, it should get interesting when I begin the process of becoming a CPA.
