Books of 2019 (So Far)

Hello everyone! My Goodreads goal for 2019 is 40 books. I am a little behind schedule- moving states and new jobs can do that I guess- but here are the books I have read so far. They are listed in the order that I read them- not by how much I like them. Red Queen…

Everything is Finally Settling Down

Hey everyone! I know it has been way too long, but I should be able to get back on a once a week (at minimum) posting schedule soon. The house is good. The furniture is delivered and set up. Random decor is being put in places. I'm more comfortable at my job. All is good.…

Dreams Come True

Okay, so I know that it was been WAY too long since I have written anything, so let's do a quick life update: I survived one of the worst tax seasons ever (thank you new tax laws that no one really understands yet).We went to Disney! It was a blast. I even got to experience…

There’s a light…

At the end of the tax season tunnel. While Friday is business return deadline and everyone is stressed, we have just over a month until freedom. And for me, that freedom means actual weekends and Disney World. Things have gotten to a slightly more manageable than they were. I'm settling into this senior role with…

I have none of the talent that will ever let me be in a musical, but that will never stop me from loving Broadway or from putting on one woman shows at home or in my car. So, this is going to be a list of what I believe to be the best Broadway songs…

I’m Still Here!

We are a week and a half away from the first deadline of tax season. By January first, all W-2s, 1099s, 1098s, etc must be prepped, mailed out, and filed. As such, I have been super busy. I have averaged about 53 hours a week the past three weeks, and I am in a constant…

Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a safe celebration last night. We have officially said goodbye to 2018! Today is the first blank page of 2019, and the book can be anything you want it to be. I've been spending the past few weeks thinking about what I want to accomplish the coming year, and I want…

2018: A Reflection

Gosh, what a year. I passed the CPA exam, swam with sea turtles, started with a personal trainer, and did a bunch of stuff in between. As for my 2018 goals, let's review together: Pass the CPA exam- check! Lose 10 pounds and be healthier- I could have done better here. I got really close…
