2022.01.20 01:27 anxiouscpacandidate [CAN] I feel stuck - 28 year old in Junior Accountant position - looking for advice on advancement

Hi all,
Just having a panic attack thinking about what I've been doing over the last 5 years of my work experience as I'm pursuing the CPA Designation.
I feel like I'm going nowhere in my journey and I'm a failure, although I passed the 2020 CFE, I don't feel like I've developed any professional skills that would help me advance in my career.
Below is the experience I've gained so far:
Y1 - Y2: "Accounting Clerk" - no CPA hrs
- did some A/R collection and invoicing
- Assisted with month end by determining accrual for one department to expense
- Daily bank rec
Y2 - Y4: Bookkeeping Associate -> Senior Associate -> Team Lead at X company
- managed a portfolio of 40 clients doing GAAP bookkeeping based in CA and US
- lead a cohort of 7 team members, reviewing work done by junior associates to ensure financial statements were GAAP compliant for the most part
- fostered and developed relationships with bookkeeping clients to prevent churn
*generally bookkeeping was straightforward as majority of clients were service based - hence no complicated accounting needed
Y5: Junior Accountant (just started, 8 months in) doing:
- Month end account reconciliations: Prepaids, Fixed Assets, Accrued Liabilities, reviewing A/R at month end for bad debt to accrue and lastly preparing a schedule showing estimated tax provision based on US sales tax regulations
- Weekly JE posting on ERP (Which is repetitive, no complicated accounting)
- Assisting tax team currently by compiling W9 information from vendors
- Preparing invoice payments
- Assist in audit preparation by reviewing internal schedules used to prepare financial statements
- High level month/month analysis of Financial statements (B/S and P/L) providing commentary on cause of material variances (I did not set this threshold - no judgment)
I submitted the gist of the above to CPA ontario and I hope they approve it for PERT. I'm going to ask my manager for work that would help me develop experience in FP&A but I'm also considering whether I should try to leave and join another company, but I feel that I'd have to apply for a junior position because I don't meet the experience requisites of Senior roles in FP&A (as these usually require experience already in FP&A).
Over the course of my work journey I've developed some proficiency with Excel - I'm comfortable with pivot tables, VLOOKUPs, SUMIFs, IF statements but I feel like I'm lacking.
I feel anxious because I feel stuck in a cycle where I'll be in a junior position in my 30s making $56k/yr without a CPA designation, so I'm looking for advice on what I can practically do to advance in my career.
Greatly appreciate any advice in advance, thanks
TL;DR - I feel like a hamster in a hamster ball in my accounting career.

2022.01.20 01:27 Azurefoxxx Possible Recipe

First post. Just need a second opinion because I have a boatload of AVB and mounds of cookie dough (the pilsbury kind) to spare. Would I get a good high if I mix the AVB into the cookie dough before I bake it and then bake it, eat etc. Not in a good position to make butter or oil atm. Thoughts?

2022.01.20 01:27 tyarah184 Are McHugh/Oak open during these two weeks?

Since classes are all online, the library (per their website) is closed for access until the end of next weekend. But are McHugh and Oak blocked off to students? Would I get in trouble if I wore a mask and did my homework on my laptop in there?

2022.01.20 01:27 Phoenix_314159 I can’t believe this happened to me

Ok, so I just need a place to rant. I’ve always liked my job, in fact I’ve always compared it to a hobby, but I’m just starting to become disillusioned. I have a fancy degree (and all of the debt that comes along with it), a well paying job, and I’ve managed to establish myself in the years since I got my bachelors. In fact, I’ve always scoffed at you lazy chads over here. In antiwork, I’d go and call y’all lazy and entitled, but I’m just realizing that this isn’t true. The real world is a lot harsher than I could ever have thought. Now, I’m realizing the load of shit that Fox News has fed me and slowly abandoning my conservative world view. I get the message now, it all makes sense. Anyway, back to the story. So, I went to work Yesterday.

2022.01.20 01:27 Tiger_Widow Any decent turn based autobattler dungeon crawling Roguelikes on the PS4 in the same vein as "the dungeon beneath"?

I'm in the mood for a new roguelike/lite dungeon crawler. I've played Darkest Dungeon for years now, I also have Binding of Isaac, Dead Cells, Rogue Legacy, Enter the Gungeon, slay the spire and Invisible Inc.
I'm really looking for something turn based and more chill than twitch based skill gameplay. More in the vein of DD or StS, but with a party/loot management system (and not a deckbuilder) and random dungeon-esq encounters and permadeath progression (RL/DD style)
I've had a bit of a look through various web lists for something that fits this style but not really found anything that takes me.
Any of you got any recommendations for something in this vein? I'm loose on most of it other than being turn based and involving party/item strategy to some degree.

2022.01.20 01:27 hoothasb At war all the time.

Faction War is always at war. We have more action than any null sec at any regular time. Right now the main attraction is between Caldari squids (the premadona bot farmers) and the Gallente warriors. Most pilots join Caldari to bot farm or squid puddle easy isk.
Of course Faction War can be done 24 hours a day, with or without a Corp. So, putting it out there to all the board pilots.

2022.01.20 01:27 byte-this Streamlined Logo Designer - Web App

I've just released a logo designer web app which provides many options for designing logos while providing as simple as possible an interface. I've done some testing myself and have received some preliminary feedback. I'm also open to any additional feedback and feature requests for the tool. In the sections below, I'll introduce the features, then show some demo examples created with the app.
The app itself can be found here: https://bytethisstore.com/tools/pg/logo-designe. Feel free to share any of your own designs in the comments!

A Few Logo Examples
Below are a few examples I've created from the tool.

2022.01.20 01:27 isene Ole and Sven are elderly friends who die in a snowmobiling accident, drunker than skunks And go to Hell.

The Devil observes that they are really enjoying themselves.
He says to them
‘Doesn’t the heat and smoke bother you?’
Ole replies, ‘Vell, ya know, ve’re from nordern Minnesooota, da land of snow an ice, an ve’re yust happy fer a chance ta varm up a little bit, ya know.’
The devil decides that these two aren’t miserable enough and turns up the heat even more.
When he returns to the room of the two from Minnesota, the devil finds them in light jackets and hats, grilling Walleye and drinking beer.
The devil is astonished and exclaims,
‘Everyone down here is in misery, and you two seem to be enjoying yourselves?’
Sven replies, ‘Vell, ya know, ve don’t git too much varm veather up dere at da Falls, so ve’ve yust got ta haff a fish fry vhen da veather’s dis nice.’
The devil is absolutely furious.
He can hardly see straight.
Finally he comes up with the answer.
The two guys love the heat because they have been cold all their lives.
The devil decides to turn all the heat off in Hell.
The next morning, the temperature is 60 below zero, icicles are hanging everywhere, and people are shivering so bad that they are unable to wail, moan or gnash their teeth.
The devil smiles and heads for the room with Ole and Sven.
He gets there and finds them back in their parkas, bomber hats, and mittens.
They are jumping up and down, cheering, yelling and screaming like madmen.
The devil is dumbfounded,
‘I don’t understand, when I turn up the heat you’re happy. Now its freezing cold and you’re still happy. What is wrong with you two?’
They both look at the devil in surprise and say,
‘Vell, don’t ya know, if hell iss froze over, dat must mean da Vikings von da Super Bowl.
