Running A Bank Is Hard Work

I’ve survived another week at work, people. This one was particularly grueling: we started pretty early and worked really hard. We’ve been learning about how banks are run and have even done a bit of “running” banks ourselves in groups. Obviously these aren’t real banks—it’s a project in which we can change various aspects of management at a hypothetical bank, then a computer program does calculations and based on economic changes, we are able to see how the bank is performing.

I never thought running a bank was easy, but I don’t think I realized prior to this week exactly how difficult it was. There’s just so much to think about. Thank goodness I won’t be appointed to the management team anytime soon…
