I hope everyone had a chance to enjoy the holidays. I know I did!! We traveled all around and visited with family and friends we haven’t seen in a while.

I felt a bit guilty when my aunt called me from Michigan and invited us over for New Year’s. It’s about a 4 hour drive for us, but I packed everything up, including Roger CPA Review and Jeff’s NINJA Study Notes, and off we went.

Surprisingly, I did find some time to study. My whole family is very supportive with my journey. While the little one took a nap and my husband watched a movie with our older daughter, I studied for a few hours.

Now the holidays are over, it’s time to get some serious. I’ve finished watching all the FAR lectures and have done some MCQs. Now, it’s time to do some more MCQs and review Jeff’s NINJA notes.

My FAR exam is about 2 weeks away, so I’m getting a little nervous.

This time I actually finished watching all of the lectures. I’ve already noticed I’m picking up a few more details that I missed the last time. I deserved that score of a 73 back in November since I tried to short cut my studying because I was running out of time.

Jeff’s newest NINJA Study Notes couldn’t have come out at the perfect time for me. Time for me to get them out and work on tons of MCQs.

I’ve been on this journey way to long. One of my 2012 New Year’s resolutions is to pass this CPA exam once and for all.
