I Passed & I’m Moving Forward

17 Jun

I took my first CPA test over one month ago and finally got my score on Monday night.  See, the CPA people want everyone to know just how important and difficult their test is (and it is, see below).

Anyways, the good news is that I got my score…and I PASSED!!  Hooray!!  *wipes sweat off brow*

I will say one thing though (just in case the AICPA is in fact reading this – he he) – that test was damn hard.  It was hands down the hardest thing I’ve ever accomplished in my life…and I’ve still got three more tests.

I celebrated with a day of shopping with my Mom on Monday.  (Wanna know what I got?  High-waisted pencil skirt, dressy gray vest, summery tank top, leather flippie floppies, workout tank top, and workout shorts…)  It was well worth it and well-deserved!

Big shout out to my biggest supporter and fan, my amazing boyfriend, Lloyd.  He was so wonderful and caring during the whole process.  Even when I was sitting at my desk with my hair all frizzed out Albert-Einstein-style screaming at the computer, he still seemed to love me.  I couldn’t have done it without ya.

For those of you reading my blog for CPA purposes, I’m posting my study schedule for AUD on a new CPA page.  Be on the lookout for it…

Big inhale, big exhale, moving on to the next section….stay tuned.

    Way to go!!! I’m thrilled for you!

    I have a friend who heard she just passed BEC too. Apparently that’s the first one graded, so your score reports were out first. FAR is rumored to be the last graded, so I’m still waiting . . .

    Good luck studying for AUD!
