Gray Hair From Accounting?

Greetings All,

I am a new member of GoingConcern, a sophomore accounting major. Accounting thus far has been much easier for me than it has been for the majority of my classmates throughout. It is intellectually challenging and I don't despise accounting at all. I like it. 

To most, accounting is more daunting than an 8AM Saturday class… Or giving birth. 

Something I've noticed: All accountants seem so stressed. Do they all have gray hair? Not necessarily; however, regardless of age, department, substance abuse habits, you name it, they all seem very strung out. 

Is it possible to be happy with life as an accountant? 


Thank you,

Coffee Fiend
