It's um... heart-wrenchingly boring most of the time. I used to be a tax accountant and really enjoyed the work, but the hours were just UGGHHHHHH, so now I'm an industry accountant, which is a lot less fun (I know, you're thinking 'Something can be less fun than tax accountant? Impossible.' But seriously, it's true).
Anyways - this post isn't meant to be a huge bitch fest about my career. It's more about reconciling what I do with who I am (accountants love a good reconciliation). This is something I struggle with almost daily. I basically go between "do what you love" (aka work with animals or people more closely) and "you have to pay bills to keep what you love" (horses and home).
|My thoughts exactly, you adorable man|
I'm currently of the mindset that I have this analytical/numbers skillset, and I'm good at what I do, so I need to work that angle. BUT - I hate a lot of things about office life, mostly the clothes, the inability to do whatever I want to my appearance, the frowning upon swearing heavily, etc. It's just suffocating how stuffy office life can be, especially in any finance related field.
One thing I am working on is buying clothes that I can wear to work, but would also wear in my everyday life (horses, going out to eat with handsome beau, reading some awesome blogs). I know this sounds like a pathetic reach, but I do think being able to dress more 'myself' at work will help me stay happy in that work. Anyways - I've been looking a lot at Asmar Equestrian and Ariat, but again, I'm left a bit stumped - do people actually wear this stuff to ride in, or even be around horses in? Can you actually get away with wearing breeches to work?
