Ready to Own the CPA Exam in 2012

Today has been a bittersweet day. Three people from my firm found out they have completed all four parts and are now CPAs. If my testing window cooperated I would have been celebrating with them.

I am happy for them, but at the same time I am crying on the inside. Sometimes this exam just seems unfair, and when you think you might have gotten one step closer it gets pulled right from underneath you.

However, I am not going to let myself sulk and beat myself up for not passing with the best of them. If anything I am hoping that by them all passing it pushes me that much harder to pass these exams.

There is so much more out of life that I want than spending all my spare time studying. I can only get there if these exams get done. I am on a serious mission for 2012. I will own 2012!

I toy with the idea of moving FAR once again. It is more out of fear though. I will be done with the homestudy lectures by tomorrow night and will have five weeks to work multiple choice questions. I hope that this is enough time to get FAR under my belt because that is one exam I do not want to repeat! From reading everyone’s advice on the forum that seems to be the only way to pass FAR: MCQs, MCQs, and more MCQs!

I hope all of you waiting for scores receive happy news! To those of my friends in the forums that did not receive the news they wanted – keep your chins up. We got this next testing window! Yankee and Jomarie are constantly my support through this process lately, and I just want you ladies to know I appreciate it more than you know! Keep at it!

Until next time,
