Journal Entry 2 by nwpassage at Prince George, British Columbia Canada on Monday, October 17, 2011
Since in recent years I've been studying part-time for my CGA, I pulled this off the shelf & gave it a quick breeze-through a while back. Didn't find it very helpful, but that could be because I'm so far removed from that life now. One quote I did mark:

"Much of the stress of school and ultimately the working world is caused by a constant and underlying fear that there exists some event that you should be preparing for, or some item that you have forgotten."

Also scanned a funny illustration for this journal entry. Book is now Available, hopefully it will find someone for whom it's relevant.

Are you sure you want to delete this item? It cannot be undone.
