Rollie is a NINJA CPA blogger. NINJAs – As I stare out my upstairs window into the gloomy and dark January sky, I would like to say… I finally hit the adaptive phase in NINJA MCQ! It took way too long, which I interpret as a sign of laziness and motivation. In case you didn’t know, I have been on this journey for quite a while. I even passed REG at one point, hence my frustration over mental taxation as well as money poured into achieving this certification. For those who are curious, search the archives on the forum or on Another71.com. I think a lot of us go through this when we are working towards the CPA. I honestly feel that there is a good, “How I Met Your Mother” joke somewhere in there with the frustration that Ted Mosby feels on his dating life. I am trending around
Rollie is a NINJA CPA blogger. NINJAs, REG studying is falling way behind due to my lack of motivation surrounding this process. If you do recall, I been at this for quite a while and have plenty attempts under my belt, thus the de-motivation feeling is kicking in. I tell myself I need to “Just suck it up, Buttercup” and get this done once and for all. Alas, my excuses continue to overcome my motivation to start a study session, etc. I feel like this is a common feeling among many candidates. “Oh, this pile of bills has been sitting here for a month, might as well go through them now,” or “Maybe I will try cooking a fancy and intricate meal for supper after work.” Everything seems better than studying.

The good news is that I am remembering a lot of the tax issues and business law concepts from when I passed REG the first time around many eons ago. I am still working slowly through the trying to get my head around S-Corps and Partnership taxation. It is quite exciting and riveting.

Rollie is a NINJA CPA blogger. With the buzz of holiday cheer adrift in the air and holiday decoration exploding in our house, I sit at my card table that is not on the rooftop to memorize taxation and contract law. Nothing is more joyful than restudying for the test that you once passed. At least Kenny G can make it mostly better. I am slowly picking up speed on my REG studying after hitting a major time-suck with post car accident appointments. I am currently trending around the 52 percent mark and I am hoping to stay motivated through the holiday season to take my test in early January. My pro tip from my last post about using the tax forms is really helping me regain knowledge of tax issues. Contract law on the other hand is major time suck and it questions my actual level of reading comprehension.
