I graduated with an MBA today. My mom immigrated to the US from Central America when she was 20. I lost her when I was young, but she planted a seed in me before we said goodbye. I feel like today I bear those fruits. Forever grateful.

I really resonate with this OP, my father immigrated here in the 80s and always instilled the hard working mentality in me and always wanted me to continue my education. He is still alive but has been suffering through late stage Alzheimer’s throughout my MBA and I wish he could understand the impact he had on my journey until today.

I love audit and Big 4. Long hours in busy season are a part of the job and that's ok, doesn’t mean I have no life. Audit is not boring, junior tasks can be. If you disagree and still at Big 4 - why?

I took LSD yesterday after feeling down about life.

I listened to Gypsy by Fleetwood Mac during my peak and I cried to that song for about 2 hours. I felt like Stevie Nicks was helping me let go of my insecurities, it was much needed. I learned that it’s okay to be vulnerable and to not ignore my emotions.

Feel like a new man today.
