I've been good this week, getting home at decent hours (before 11!)
Tonight, for some reason, I picked up the April 2005 issue of CA magazine (I don't remember the last time I did that... but I think I did it because this one wasn't shrink-wrapped -- I'm usually too lazy to open it.) Every so often the magazine features some super-accountant who pursues his or her life dream while building up a solid accounting career.
Well, this issue featured Darren Lee, whose resume features the following timeline:
2001 - obtains CA designation
2002 - becomes tax manager at KPMG
2003 - obtains CFA and CPA designations
2004 - competes at Les grands amateurs de piano, Paris, and then leaves KPMG to pursue his music career!
Sigh... what am I doing with my life?? But wow, just imagine the possibilities! The article is funny -- and I do agree with him how music is analytical and technical details are worked out int he same thorough manner as in accounting. Hahahaha...
Until next time, this is Gladys Yam.
