First day of graduate school

This was the first day of the financial analysis program at St. Mary's College of California. I guess that officially makes me a graduate student!

The program began with the FAIM 601 lecture. At first it was like being back in high school. However, each session is four hours long, and accounting isn't exactly the most exciting subject in the world. I'll have to try to not fall asleep. ^_^

Unlike other graduate programs, this one is geared towards professionals. Though most students are millennials, there are a few in their 40s and beyond. The classes aren't held on campus, but at the American Management Association conference center at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis. I have to take the BART to San Francisco twice a week as we meet Tuesday and Thursday evenings. The commute arguably is my least favorite part.

I'm actually still finishing up my bachelor's degree and will be taking classes at both Berkeley and the AMA for the next five weeks. The overlap is going to be tough, but definitely nothing I can't handle. On the subject of which, I should probably get back to preparing for my Math 128A midterm. Peace.
