1:00 am last night/this morning working on schoolwork.
I had a simulation where I had to calculate the future
and present values of different scenarios on ordinary
annuities, perpetuities, annuities due, uneven cash flows,
and other joyous financial issues I hope to never directly
deal with. There is a reason I don't handle my own
I HATE FINANCE
I like money. At least, I like having it and spending it.
But the fact that I am about to go out and buy a financial
calculator rubs me the wrong way. I think it is worth the
$30 to not have to sit around in the wee hours and do
PMT(1+Interest) + PMT ((1+I)*(1+I)) + PMT ((1+I)*(1+I)*(1+I))...
to figure out values over an 8 month period....by hand using
only my computer's calculator
When I got around to doing the other part of my homework,
where I only had to figure out earnings per share based
on different EBIT and interest rates...it actually felt
EASY and FUN.
Only 3 more weeks and I'm done with finance until I have
to do my final school project for my degree. YAY!!!!!!!!!
