I have avoided figure crunching, ledgers, trial balances and cash books all my life. Now they are haunting my dreams. Look, it's fabulous that I am being exposed to this, it's essential information (*mutter* that's what bookkeepers and accountants and office managers are for *mutter*) and I'm the first to agree that learning things the manual way is a noble pursuit in this age of accounting software but... this stuff is frying my brain.
I have been sitting here today and at various points have thought, in a panic, I am never, never going to grasp this. the concepts in isolation are worry-free and easy. But give me a sum of money from a random source and ask me how I record it's passage through the firm's books and drool starts running down my chin.
I. will. learn. this.
