A Very Happy and Hopeful Day

Today at 1 pm, I am going to pickup a Welcome Package and forms to fill out for my new career in the Financial Services industry. It will be as a part-time assistant at first, but I will have the opportunity and requirement to study for and pass the Series 7 exam within 4 months. It has been a long time since I have been in school, but I am smart enough and as long as the math involved is not Calculus, I am sure I can handle it.

I can't begin to tell you all how grateful I am to the woman who is brave and bold enough to take on a 58 year old woman with no personal experience in the field.

The only down side, is that I cannot leave my other part time position, which I absolutely loathe, for the time being and will be working 6 days a week for most of these 4 months of training. That won't leave too much time for my crafts, but they definitely will serve as relaxation. I will post as often as I am able to keep everyone informed of my progress. Who needs sleep anyway??
