Test Day

So test day was the next day and the night before the test was awful.  I couldn’t get sleep.   I kept going over mnemonics in my head and couldn’t turn it off, even though I was exhausted and wanted to be well rested before the test.  I think I finally got to sleep around 3 or 4 in the morning, only allowing me about 4 hours of sleep.

The day of the test, I continued multiple choice questions, and was doing better, some area’s scoring 100%, but certain area’s I was very weak, and…

Time management problems

When my husband left, I concentrated on getting a job, and finishing up the educational requirements for the CPA requirements.  Classes ended December 9th and I should have started studying right away for my test.  But, it was December, I still didn’t have any Christmas decorations up, I had purchased most of the gifts I bought on black Friday, but I still needed to wrap and buy all the little things and some gifts I didn’t have.  I have a 5 year old, this was very important to me…

The Fight Continues

Greetings to everyone.  Well, my exam date is fast approaching, but my studying is going at a snail’s pace. My mom will be moving back into her assisted living facility next week, and out of skilled nursing.  I meet with her attorney on Monday to begin the process folding what is left of her assets into a trust, and making certain all of her last wishes are clearly expressed as she wants them.  I thought I had more time on this and it could wait to after my exam to get this started, but her…

Finding Your CPA Nemo

There was many of time where I felt like I just wanted this testing to be over, actually most of the time. I almost gave up so many times, because the stress of not passing, that taste of failure, that hearing of your family shock and knowing you didn’t pass will drain your bank account down further and extend that time clock of when you can finally close your books and say you’re a CPA. Fail, Fail, Pass, Fail, Pass, Pass…and hopefully in May another Pass will be coming my way. Each fail I…
