Indeed...things are looking up.
I've found a method, which so far, has seen me going to bed at 1:30am, sleeping at 2:30am - yet waking up at 8:30am - fine, and awake! - Not even the old tired mole, that I normally am.
Well....that aside, how's the idea of accounting sitting?
Here's the answer. It rocks. And as always, there is a BUT - the BUT part is fairly simple, that is to say, I've contacted the university and changed the structure of the course slightly, so that I am actually doing a Bachelor of Business in Financial Planning - this gives me a wider strucutre, a more intrinsic approach, and a knowledge base of general financial idioms. - Yeah, yeah, yeah -I'm rambling.
Essentially the B.Acc was in another state (SA) and as such if I need to go in then issues...etc. So, the B.Bus(FinancialPlanning) is much better as it is through RMIT.
So, how's the Art's component coming?
- That's all good. I'm going to use a total of 6 units (my electives) to supplement my commerce/finance knowledge and try to complete my Arts degree as well. - At the end of this year I will apply to be transferred into an on-campus degree - dependent on how well I perform at the open-edu subjects.
So, What subjects am I studying - in total, this semester? - Well, keep in mind that for the first 4 weeks the open-ed stuff doesn't start - but once it does, there is a total of 8 subjects running! - At least that's the way it is at the moment, it sounds a bit daunting so I might suspend the drama-theory untill next semester. - The main issue is that first 4 weeks....I would be doing 3 untill august 24th...
Anyway here's the list:
- Drama Prac
- Introduction To Finance
- Accounting Principles
- Introduction to Financial Planning
- Accounting Decisions and Accountability
- Economic Principles
- Information Technology 1
So, that makes 7 - yeah I dropped 1 as I was writing this.
Ciao for now
Being kreative is a wonderful thing really, I love art. - I really love the story-telling elements of performing arts, and being on stage, this is why I am a performing artist...more specifically an actor, to begin with.
This is wonderful, I love being an actor - even if I'm only a complete amateur - I love the subjects, well at least I did when I did them....and I will, when I do them.
(Can you guess what comes next???)
(You knew it right!)
Acting, for the most part, for most people (probably myself included), does not pay the bills! - And, coming from a financially challenged background (not exactly poverty stricken, but far from rich), means that financial success is something fairly high on my agenda. - Don't worry, its for the right reasons. I want to help others, not just be greedy.
No, I have a love of numbers - but not really a love of mathematics. I also have a knack for working with figures, and I like things like Law and Taxation (I know it's strange but I actually find taxation engaging)...so, with a penchant for investments and a thirst for knowledge of the stock market I find myself at a conclusion.
I applied for an accounting degree at UniSA and got in. (OpenEdu).
The cost is around $2750 AUD, for this semester - but FEE-HELP is here to save me.
What about my other degree - well, for the moment at least, I'm still doing it. I have got 2 drama subjects (of course!), but now I have 2 accounting subjects as well. I can complete the accounting degree in a super-fast 18 months - which is crazy! - And still complete my arts degree along the way.
All I have to do know is be disciplined!
And, I know it's late, but I'm happy - and I don't want to go to bed and wake up sad!
There must be something I can do to prevent this!

Essentially, it somes up my entire life at the moment.
"Will I ever get to where it is that I am going?
Will I ever follow through with what I, what I had planned?
I guess it's possible that I have been a bit distracted
and the directions for me are a lot less in demand.
Will I ever get to where I'm going?I
f I do, will I know when I'm there?I
f the wind blew me in the right direction (yea)
would I even care?I would.
I take a look around; it's evident the scene has changed.
And there are times when I feel improved upon the past.
Then there are times when I can't seem to understand at all
and yes it seems as though I'm going nowhere...really fucking fast
Will I ever get to where I'm going?
If I do, will I know when I'm there?
If the wind blew me in the right direction (yea) would I even care?
I would. I would. I would."
Yep, somes it up completely.
I have my subjects set up nicely now - I have:
- Drama Theory
- Drama Prac
- Visual Culture A (Photography/Architecture/Aesthetics etc....)
- Visual Culture B (Film)
Now all I have do is keep it that way.
If I change it again, then I will never stop.
