Let’s Celebrate Like It’s 1983!

28 Aug

I have finally emerged from my cocoon of flashcards, CPA books, notebooks, post-it notes, and CPA exam software and returned to the real world!  On Wednesday, I did nothing but sit in my living room and study.  ALL. DAY. LONG.  From about 9AM to 9PM.  Which inevitably turned into a night of insomnia fits.  I took the 2nd part of the CPA Exam yesterday and let me tell you – it was the hardest 4 hours and 15 minutes of my life thus far.  There were several points during the test where I either 1) was on the verge of tears or 2) laughed out loud.  The latter resulted in many glares at the Prometric testing center.  But alas, I made it through and am now just hoping for a pass when the results are posted on September 21st.

Just think, that was only the 2nd of four tests! I get to start studying for the next one on Tuesday!

Until then, it’s all fun and relaxation!  After all it IS my birthday this weekend!

Here’s what’s going on this weekend:


  • Birthday party with all my friends at a really fun bar.  Can’t wait!


  • Massage
  • Pool!
  • Birthday dinner with Lloyd at one of my favorite restaurants!  Actually, I just love their dessert, I could care less about the main course.  Ha!
  • Maybe comedy club?  Not sure about this because I just found out those place are pricey!


  • Relax more!


  • My actual birthday!  No work on Monday!  Woohoo!
  • SHOPPING!!!!!
  • Birthday presents from Lloyd. 🙂  I wonder what he got me?

Thank you all SO much for your words of encouragement on twitter!  I was so overwhelmed about how many of you actually remembered my test and wished me good luck! 🙂  I think all your good luck vibes really helped!

Have a fabulous weekend!

    OMG – you totally gave me a flashback to studying for the TX bar exam. My law school roommate and I basically barricaded ourselves in our house for weeks before the 3 day long exam. After the first day of actual testing we went out to a local restaurant and were totally shell-shocked by the chaos of having to interact with other people after being shut-ins.
