I am VERY slowly approaching the dramatic official adult age of 30. I am currently 29 and three-sevenths.
I have been sitting on this accounting plan for a few years now and all of a sudden it dawned on me holy cow I am almost officially a full-fledged adult. I wont have the excuse of being silly in my twenties for much longer and need to pony up and tackle this beast they call the CPA.
I always meant to study before would schedule my tests and continue to push them back until my NTS would expire. Last February I stood up Prometric and never showed up for FAR. I didnt even send flowers.
Ive decided that I am really going to enjoy being twenty-nine. I went to Ireland twice, a Bruce Springsteen concert and am always planning something fabulous. Please read: I am always procrastinating. Finally, my best friend and husband told me I need to seriously get my life in check.
So I studied. I woke up at 4:20 am and went to bed at 10 pm for 5 weeks. I studied, and it turned out it wasnt that bad. It was really enjoyable when something finally clicked. Luckily, enough things clicked because I passed BEC in February. It wasnt pretty, but I passed it.
Finally, it dawned on me, Stuart Smalley from SNL was right. I am good enough, Im smart enough and gosh darnit people like me. Youre good enough, smart enough and gosh darnit, people LOVE YOU!! We can tackle this BEAST!!!
