Well I started the year out with the best of intentions that have all gone wrong. I was going to focus on my work and studying so as not to fall behind in either. I was going to keep my house clean and my boys taken care of properly. I was going to stay healthy and not let a cold or whatever, get me down. I have been working 12 to 14 hour days since the first of January and IÂ’m just physically run down. For the past two weeks I have been fighting a cold and last Friday all of my good intentions went to the dogs. The fever kicked in and went up rapidly. I havenÂ’t picked up a book

Stephanie is a weekly Club 75 Blogger as she documents her journey through the CPA Exam. IÂ’m back!! IÂ’ve taken a very long break from blogging and itÂ’s been both a depressing break but also productive. I had my FAR exam on 1/7 and I totally bombed it. I got food poisoning on New YearÂ’s Day so the whole week leading up to my test I was feeling quite under the weather. This also caused a lot of negative thoughts to come into my head. This has happened to me before in the weeks leading me up to an exam and is never good. I am not a very good test taker, but my worst enemy is often myself because my head gets full of bad thoughts. I really need to force myself to think positive and I am really trying to improve on that in the new year. Well,

I hope everyoneÂ’s studying progress is going well. MineÂ’s going slowly. IÂ’m having a hard time managing my time. I think that has always been my major downfall. Since I work for a small CPA firm, work has majorly picked up. Between people dropping off information to get their tax returns prepared, getting W-2s and payroll reports prepared for clients, clients calling with tax season questions, and my boss being away since Christmas, things have been extremely hectic. A lot of you are probably wondering why my boss is away during the start of the busy season. Well, heÂ’s getting ready to retire soon, and I think heÂ’s putting me to the test. I feel like a “CPA in training.” Of course,

Rebecca is a weekly Club 75 Blogger as she documents her journey through the CPA Exam. She has been a member of Another71.com’s Club 75 since June 2010. Some of you may have noticed while others may have not, but I have been MIA for the past two weeks. It has been a rough two weeks for me to say the least. The first week I was fighting a really bad cold. Then second week, well letÂ’s just say I was downright miserable and wanting to quit the CPA exam. All of this negativity was not a good thing with my exam being next Tuesday. That being said on Monday I was set on moving my testing date to mid-February. I got to my office and pulled up the Prometric website and saw that there was seat availability on 2/18, perfect! Well “perfect” quickly turned into a “you have got
