Taxation 201. Got this shit in the bag. I'm good for GST, can do all those calculations easy as pie, good for personal property tax, know those 3 parts of the Income Tax act like the back of my hand, good for land tax as that part is covered almost entirely in the Income tax act and is just a matter of reading what the law is to the situation at hand to coping that shit down. Where I am having trouble is with deductions. So many deductions for so many different things and it's spread out all over the place so not just a matter of CB6-CB24 like land tax, it's all over the show. And then when I do find it you gotta know which method to use to make the deduction, then you gotta do the deduction and it's just all pretty errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Thing is the only way they can really have it as an exam question is if they give you a list of things and you have to work out what ones are deductible under what section of the act and then do the calculations, unlike the GST calculations which a shit ton easier but they can make you do essay questions instead.

Eh, I'll be fine, I gotta get at least a C in this exam to pass the whole paper and I'm averaging like B+ this whole degree so I'm not worried, breezing through this like it's high school. "Imagine the grades you could be getting if you applied yourself!" my mother always says to which I respond, "yeah and think off all the video game time I would be missing out on. Priorities mother, priories"
What do grades matter, employees don't look at grades they judge you on your job interview and then on how well you can do the actual job. Grades mean jack shit, have since middle school, have all the way through high school (doing same degree at same university as people who got far better grades then me in high school...) and continue to mean nothing now at university. Yet people scramble over them like candy from a pinata. People stress too much, that's their problem. Think grades are the most important thing in the world, yet just like high school, nobody gives a fuck and they'll be useless like a year later. What? like you're gonna say to your boss 10years into your job, "I deserve a raise because I got A+ in this test 10years ago at university", they don't give a fuck, nobody gives a fuck. You could be hanging off the edge of a cliff, there could be someone standing ontop of the cliff with a pocket full of fucks, and all you needed was just one fuck to survive, they wouldn't give you one.
