It's Killing Me!

Another day spent on personal finance.  Ugh!  It's really one thing that's hanging me up.  It just happens to be the second portion of the project.  It's a simple graph.  I have to input data.  It's not hard just super time consuming.

I've worked on this ALL day.  I woke at 5a.m. and was determined to finish at least this part of the project before the kids got up.  Here it is 7:15pm, and I've just now finished it.  UGH!!!

I kept coming up with "N/A" for one of the financial ratios I needed to report on.  I finally figured out that because I had reconfigured a couple things on the spreadsheet when I first started the class, I had thrown off the equations on the other sheets.  After I figured that out, I realized that I had to go back and redo the spreadsheet altogether.

As soon as that was done, I had to go redo three others.  They are now done, and I still have an "N/A" in that  one ratio, but now it all makes sense.  It comes up as "N/A" because I have no credit card debt.  The number is being divided by zero and thus coming up "N/A."

Can you now see why I'll be so glad when school is over?  I'm really fearful I'm going to fail this class and thus not be able to graduate.  I saved this class to the end because it was an elective.  Yes, I chose to take this loverly course.  I thought it would be a breeze...a walk in the park...a piece of cake.  Boy, was I wrong!  I might even venture to say that this class is harder for me than statistics.

I know...wah. Wah.  WAH!  Go ahead and say it, I know you want to:  "Quit your crying, and get to work." 

Okay, I'm done whining now.  I'll get back to this fun project.  Someday I'll have a normal life again.  Right?
