Undergrad was important because UH offered tons of networking opportunities. If you’re happy where you are, I would say it probably doesn’t matter much where you go. Also, are you dead set on grad school? I’m in Texas and got my masters (also at UH) to get my 150 hours but also incurred 30k in debt. For B4, being a CPA is what matters. The only time a masters is discussed is bragging in passing. If I could go back, I’d probably just get my hours at a community college to avoid 30k in debt.

Had an interview with google today (via hangout), thought it went fairly well. Asked recruiting contact for the email of the interviewer, and she said they don't give out that information. Bad sign?

Myself and other PwCers have been getting an onslaught of robo calls as of late. I'm pretty sure the firm just sells all of our data to the highest bidders.

I have a lot of shower thoughts. For example: would ppl be more productive if clocks counted down to 00:001 instead of counting up 23:59? Also why can Goofy talk but not Pluto? They’re both dogs in a universe where all animals can talk. Being on the phone all day used to mean you were really sociable. Now being on the phone all day means you’re very unsociable.

I requested a lease break from my landlord on Monday and I will be moving out of country by year end.
