LETS TALK ACCOUNTANCY
its very interesting to me right now
id be completely shit.
and me and the working classes dont get on.
Like, Ben Fogle-posh?
or you'd know
You'd be the working class. You could even be crooked, and overcharge for parts and labour, and show your arsecrack out of the top of your trousers. Personally, I can't see a downside to being a plumber.
for them to teach me their conjuring tricks.
and yes, i really would be completely shit at it.
but i need something to actually do when im standing behind my laptop during gigs.
and thats where accountancy comes in!
trousers but I'm sure he'll be ok with it
last junkplanet gig there wasnt enough free space for me to "buffer" my samples in ableton
so i had to create space on my harddrive

'i lost 3 years of porn, in the name of electrojazz' will be my sign-in name forever.
Someone's already done that.
I think you should go with the suggestion from the other thread, and be a carpenter. Carpenters are equally respectable, in a salt-of-the-earth way, but less likely to listen to Heart FM. And carpenters are more alt-folk, in that Jesus was a carpenter, and most alt-folkers look like Jesus. Also, while you could make it a sociable profession, there's also the potential there for some good, elegant hermitry. Plus you could crack jokes about wood all day.
You should go and be a carpenter.
he could apprentice me
but really, carpentry is blatant nonsense
not to spend your life doing it?
It would be more fun than accountancy. Accountancy would make you a sad and unhappy man. Don't be an accountant.
but itd be difficult.
i would be a shit carpenter.
but accountancy is incredible. i could move from industry to industry as i please, have a definite and useful skill, would make lots of money and be doing something that i actually (probably) have a skill for.
one is crazy, and the other doesn't talk much but likes noise bands.
that's not actually useful, is it?
accountants like noise.
from what i've found out from them, it takes a long time to become fully qualified, and can be quite expensive if you don't find a firm willing to take you on and pay for you to get the qualification.
what does it actually involve?
i mean the studying?
my knowledge is pretty shakey.
i imagine it being like learning the rules to a really complicated, slightly dull game, and just playing it for ever and ever.
Its incredible boring unless you get a good client.
I used to work in an Accountants from 15-20! FACKT!
My cleints included local music acts.
I also studied International accounting at University - the ONLY interesting part of my course!
I hated Accounting - I'm not the best person to talk to.
Although Bank Recons and Ledger accounts are easy!
The professional exams are really difficult - I have lots of friends still trying to complete them and they graduated with the BSc about 3/4 years ago.
I CAN TAKE THE CHALLENGE!
and yeah, i plan to work in the muzak industry, counting acs
you wanna be a chartered secretary, innit?
Accountants 10000*> Chartered Secretary
for it to be better than secretaries?
if you need any help let me know I help on the accounts in my company so I'm still up to date with the topics!
