The new manager is really excited and on board about the idea of making me a licensed banker. They're saying I'll be able to go for the licensing tests either in October or in January. It would be October for certain, but it's just that I do have to leave to Washington DC for a week in October for Georgetown classes, and that may or may not interfere with my ability to participate in the program. We'll see. What they're saying right now is that if I don't do the October class, I will almost certainly participate in the January class, so I am very excited about that.
Speaking of Georgetown, whew--Georgetown! Class begins in a week, or now, depending how you count. We have a bunch of orientation things that started this week, and then true curriculum classes in arnest will start in the middle of August. I'm really excited to fulfill some of my potential and learn more about the world of finance. I know I'm going to be exposed to a lot of aspects and sectors of the finance world. I am pretty sure that I want to continue down in the world of banking and be a higher-up banker, but who knows, maybe how I feel in two years will be different.
On top of school, I would really like to set a goal for myself to complete my CFA and my DELF/ DALF certifications. They just announced that there will be these super cheap flights from Denver to Paris next summer, so I'm kind of thinking of planning a summer vacation to Paris and just taking my DALF exam there. It would only be one week, because that's all Wells Fargo allows at one time, but yeah I would take off a week around my birthday and go explore Paris for the first time.
I've been going to CrossFit consistently 4x per week for about a full month. It's developing my body well, and I do have actual abs that I can touch, feel, and see for the first time in my life. I hope that I can keep this habit up when school starts.
I'm going to see if I can try to clean up my bedroom just a little bit before work starts.
