Hey everyone, it’s Leon R.M. Auguste, here with a brief update!
I hope you’re having a good day so far! It’s nice to finally get some time to catch up on what some of you guys have been up to lately, especially since I don’t have much of a social life anymore! This busy life of mine is thanks in part to school, work, my dog, and just the maintenance of life in general.
At any rate, life after the holiday seasons seems to be the time of the year where we all transition back into our routine, daily habits (for better or for worse). It’s the time when we begin to fall back into our practices and also when we begin to break our “New Year’s resolutions.” Because, let’s face it, only a tiny portion of people actually believe in New Year’s resolutions. If you really want to accomplish a goal, you’ll do it whenever the time arrives for you to make a decision.
With that said, I’m sorry for being away for such a long time. College is kicking into high(er) gear, and I’ve found myself swamped with my projects and assignments. I just took my Econ 102 Exam #1, and I believe I got somewhere between a 96%-99% on it (UPDATE: I got an 86%, so much for the overconfidence!). Of course, we’ll just have to wait and find out what I really got on it. Perhaps my professor will have it ready for us by tomorrow, but I doubt it since we just took it on Thursday. I already checked online, and she hasn’t been able to update the grades yet, so my best bet is that she’ll have it up by tomorrow or Wednesday.
Aside from Economics 102, I had two quizzes in my Accounting 120 class (computerized accounting). I got a 12/13 on the first one and a 13/14 on the second one. There’s always a trick question on each quiz, so it really does add a layer of attention to detail to it. Not my favorite aspect of the examinations, but nevertheless, I haven’t let that annoy me too much. In fact, I find it helps me realize what I’m misunderstanding or not getting.
At any rate, when I’m not at school, I’m most likely at work. I work only Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays at my place of employment (a boutique-like coffee shop). The boutique coffee shop definitely works with my schedule. Next semester I’ll be taking my last Economics class: Economics 101: Microeconomics. I’ll also be taking my final novice Accounting class: Accounting 102: Managerial Accounting. Not to mention, I’ll also be taking Business Law I (which is BUSAD 120) and Written Business Communication (which is BUSAD 106). Both of those classes are “Business and Administration” classes (or as most college students abbreviate it to be: BUSAD or BUS).
Luckily, once I get my Associate of Science in Accounting, I’ll focus almost entirely on getting my Bachelor of Arts in Business. This will happen once I transfer from my community college to my future 4-year university (where that will be, I have no clue yet).
In this day and age, you can never be “too-educated” or skilled. Yet, it seems like the job market is ever-the-competitive.
With that update out of the way, I wanted to let you know that I have about 12 articles in reserve. They need a lot (and a mean A LOT) of reviewing and editing, though before I even think of letting them loose into the wild known as the Internet. Also, again, sorry for the lack of content on the blog/website. Unfortunately, I haven’t had any time at all to really just sit down and relax. However, I will try and find the time shortly (realistically, I should have some more time, perhaps this weekend, and some free time in about 2-weeks from next week). Supposing my schedule is freed up for this weekend, I’ll be dedicating it to primarily just editing my content here on the blog.
Thank you to those who have decided to stick it out here on my blog/website; I can only promise you that I’ll have the next couple of articles (about 4-6) up within the next 3 weeks. After that, I have a week off (so I should be able to upload 4 in one week and write some more posts/articles in reserve).
Well, that’s all that’s really going on in my life at the moment. I’ll keep you guys posted periodically, but for now, I’ll be going back to studying and doing some more small projects here and there. You can expect the next post/article to be up by this weekend. Again, I appreciate all of the patience and support you’ve given me over the last couple of weeks. College is really crazy and hectic, but in the end, I’ll be better at networking and finding opportunities wherever they exist.
No matter how hard it is for me to overcome any obstacles, I know I can let my work ethic speak for itself. So, with that said, I will talk to you guys again in the future, till then!
Forever in Your Debt,
Leon R.M. Auguste
