New Job, Making Room, and FAR Study

Wow! Ive had a long week. As you may remember, I wrote last week that I got a job offer. Well, everything fell into place and I started Monday, October 24th. Yay!
I had to go to the Social Security Office Thursday because they said I had to have my SS card for payroll. That was a bummer because its 20 minutes away and there was a huge line, but now Im all set.
Ive also been organizing like crazy because we have a friend moving in with us in November from out of state, so I had to clean out our guest room, which is also my study room.
We’ve been using our guest room for our closet overflow and to store stuff, so it was quite a project to organize and clean it out.
I also had to organize our office to move most of the stuff to that room. Before our friend arrives Im going to move my study table to our bedroom. I dont like to study in the office because we keep the cat there, and she can be annoying.
As far as studying, I did pretty well last week. I wrapped up FAR-3 on Monday, and now Im almost done with FAR-4. I also rescheduled my test because the original test date was too soon.
I got an extra 5 days, but I was hoping to get more because no matter what I wont be able to take another test this window, and I can certainly use the extra time to review and study extra journal entries.
I still, and I guess I probably always will, have problems with my MCQ speed. I always get behind on my study schedule because it takes me so long to do MCQ. Ive started to do every other one and then I can just do those I skipped if I have time during my review.
Anyway, I better get back to studying.
