"Ah no worries. I asked if it was a hard transition into accounting after being a history major. And do you enjoy accounting?"

For me it was not very hard because I took on an economics minor while an undergrad. Accounting does not involve difficult math, but it's only a matter of learning the rules and making sure the numbers balance. It is something that I have quickly caught onto. I do enjoy it and the psychological motivation that I am learning something that is very useful in the work force helps a lot.

For me, one thing that I found easy was that I was trained to study historical events stretching from hundreds of years while a history student. It requires a lot of mental endurance to retain that information because history is never-ending. However, accounting is limited and once you have learned the major parts of accounting, that is it and there is no more information required to learn.

I would highly suggest moving to accounting if your goal is to go back to school. It is a lot more useful than an MBA. What I am doing is getting enough accounting classes to take the CPA exam. Once you have a CPA the opportunities are endless.

"AFAIK, every fraternal order accepts young men.  Knights of Columbus accepts starting at age 18.  Freemasons, it's 18 or 21.  Elks and Moose, 21.  Oddfellows, 16.  Rotary, 18.  You have plenty of options."
