Well not really. Not yet.
My classes start a week from today on Monday, May 22nd.
My boss agreed to let me try working extended hours Monday – Thursday, and taking off Fridays (since our non-tax season hours are 8:30am – noon on Fridays).
Notice the word try.
As in this is not a completely done deal yet. So, I will work hard to ensure that I stay on top of my duties.
One less day of commuting and one more day to study = would help me tremendously not to burnout on any fronts.
Although my official school classes don’t start until Monday, I’ve been studying audio books like mad for the last year, with a concerted effort for the last six months.
I don’t only listen to the audio books during my commutes to and from work. I listen in the morning, I listen in the evening, I listen while cleaning, I listen while walking, I listen while sitting out on my porch. In short – I listen, listen, and listen.
When I am tired of listening or need a break, I turn to music or silence for a while (even days) until I am ready to hear more information.
I’d like to share what I have been listening to over the last year.
Perhaps you will find something of interest.
I started with one book which led me to another, or I would read or hear about a book and I just followed the path.
The first two are my absolute favorites because they are personal life stories, and I am very interested in these people’s lives and how they got to where they are today.
I hope you find something of interest.
My deepest desires?
To never stop learning.
To never think I know all that I need to know.
And to always keep an open mind and be willing to at least explore.
