AUD Score Release: The Longest Wait of My Life

Alex is a [A71 product=”combo”]NINJA CPA blogger[/A71].

Welcome to the longest week of my life. Next week after 4 AND A HALF MONTHS I will receive my first CPA exam score for AUD. I would love to say that I know I passed or even that I felt I failed but I can’t.

I just have to say that phrase that our parents told us when we for sure not going to get that toy all the other kids had, “we’ll see”. After taking my first exam I tried unsuccessfully to integrate life into the CPA exam and that is a task I can confidently say I have failed.

Now I didn’t mean to fail at this CPA and life integration but it’s hard. It’s like going on a diet you have little cheats, working a little later than you need to, spending a few minutes (hours) on Pinterest, a few funny youtube clips and bam you are off your study plan and it’s much easier to stay off track than attempt to get back on.

Pathetically I have spent the past 4 months not on track. However I don’t want to say to myself or to anyone else that you have to stay off track because that’s not true in life and especially not the exam. The CPA exam is not a test of intelligence it’s a test of will, if you continue to take the exam you will get better and you will pass, you just have to keep going.

See after audit I took a break, I wanted to take get my marathon medal after the first water stop but I hadn’t earned it yet but I know similar to the marathon that if I keep going towards my goal I’ll eventually get there.

Honestly I wish I could take back the past 4 months I spent not studying but I can’t, I can only as my Dad constantly reminds me go forward. With that being said for the next week I’ll be hitting FAR hard and praying daily that I passed Audit.

Accountants are naturally a little type A so my google calendar is going to get a little more strict and I’ll be reducing my Pinterest time. I love quotes as you will learn and this is a little encouragement to those who may like me have fallen off track but need a reminder that you can fall back on track too.

“One of the most common misconceptions in life is that what we did yesterday has to somehow dictate what we can do or be today. It doesn’t. We never have to be limited by who we’ve been. At any time, we can decide to be or do something different and totally redirect the trajectory of our lives.” Lori Deschenne.
