Speaking of work, today was kind of choppy since I went to see one of my parish priests in the morning. This is part of the ongoing attempt to kick-start my spiritual life and get right with God again, and I think it's going to go well. The meeting was very cathartic and productive. There's a lot of things going on at the parish, and I expect I'll be getting more involved in some of those things, in addition to doing a little Eucharistic Adoration and showing up for Mass like I'm supposed to.
I was going to dump my (altered) career plans in another post, but this is as good as any a place to note that I'm going to abandon the teaching career path. It just doesn't pay well enough to justify the additional class work I'll need to finish off a teaching certification. The same goes for continuing to look for entry-level bookkeeping/accounting jobs; these also don't pay very well and I'm brutally overqualified for most of them. Fortunately, the Virginia CPA exam isn't as big a ball-buster as it is in other states, but it looks like I'm still going to need some additional coursework first, since they don't count OJT toward the scholastic requirements. I have offers to help me with the classes, and maybe I can count some of my Cardinal Stritch MBA classes, if I can pry a transcript loose from them.
That's about it for today.
