I am taking a short break from work right now to update everyone on my week so far. I spent most of the day (9-4:30) in a class on corporate tax. Ernst & Young has started a new thing called E&Y University Tax. I only signed up for one class but it seemed really long. There is a recorded instructor that lectures and then live instructors (managers) help us do problems to apply the lecture. Although it was a long day, it is ten times better than doing an 8 hour WBL (Web Based Learning pronounced Weeble). The University was developed to incorporate more live learning into our required learning. We have to do at least 40 hours a year but as a staff person you end up doing a lot more. I have already done about 100 this year. The good thing about learning week is that we get to have get togethers beginning at 5:30 yesterday and today. That means I get to leave work early without feeling guilty! I also got a computer bag (although it has the E&Y University logo) and two coozies. If anyone wants an E&Y logo bag, let me know...because I have one up for grabs.
Gilmore and Amazing Race are on tonight so I will be a couch potato after the get together. But that is okay because despite the cold (38 degrees) this morning Justin and I went on a walk. We got up and were all groggy and just took off like normal. A little bit into the walk, we woke up some and realized it was way to cold to be out walking! Oh well, it is still nicer to walk out in the neighbor than on a treadmill.
