Well, kids, on Friday night at this time, I will have my third CPA Exam under my belt. Whether or not I pass that exam…well, we won’t know that until mid-to-late March when the scores are released.
Studying for this exam has been killer for me. For the other two exams, I studied for 2-3 months before going to battle with confidence. However, as you can see, I haven’t taken an exam in over 6 months.
What happened? Well, for one thing, I got distracted. On top of that, life happened. Weddings and birthdays and Thanksgiving and Christmas got in the way. By the time January got here, I had studied maybe 1 or 2 chapters in my CPA book. I had vowed to myself that I would have all the tests passed by May so I could enjoy my favorite season of them all – summer.
But now, May is two months away and I still have to pass two tests.
There’s good news though. I’m in massive, hardcore study mode these days. I’ve literally given up everything I love over the past few months – including the gym, family/friends, and blogging, it’s depressing – and studied every free moment.
I am sure you readers are so sick of me going on and on about the exam. Trust me, I am sick of it, too! :) I had no idea what I was getting into when I signed up for this exam. When I’m not doing calculations in my head, I daydream about all the future plans I have for the blog! I am super excited as to where this blog is headed after I pass the CPA Exam. I plan to make blogging my new full-time hobby after the tests. So, watch out. 🙂
I just took my practice exam and I scored a cumulative percentage of 82%. I scored only 73% on the practice exam for my last exam and I still passed. Even with a fairly good practice score, I still don’t feel confident. What the heck!
Anyways, bear with me readers, I’m almost done. Can you believe it?! If I pass this test, I will be 3/4 of the way done with the CPA Exam! Fingers crossed…
Send me good vibes on Friday afternoon! I really need them!
Have a fabulous week!
P.S. I would heart you all if you happened over to the Plutus Awards and voted for me in the Best-Kept Secret Personal Finance Blog. I can’t believe I was even nominated – I feel so lucky!
