I am not a math person.

In fact, I’m the furthest thing from a math person.

In college, when I learned that my degree track was heavy with math courses (OK, I knew, but reality finally slapped me in the face sank in), I did a 180, changed majors and went with my first, true and only love: writing.

But in this world there are word people and there are number people, and while both are wildly important to the continuation of a peaceful humanity, this particular job opportunity is for number people.

That’s right, folks.

We’re talking bookkeeping.
