The first week I was fighting a really bad cold. Then second week, well lets just say I was downright miserable and wanting to quit the CPA exam.
All of this negativity was not a good thing with my exam being next Tuesday. That being said on Monday I was set on moving my testing date to mid-February. I got to my office and pulled up the Prometric website and saw that there was seat availability on 2/18, perfect!
Well perfect quickly turned into a you have got to be kidding me?! I mixed up my NTS expiration dates for FAR and BEC. BECs expired on 4/1 and FAR on 2/1. Needless to say I will be sitting for FAR next Tuesday as I had those two dates backwards in my mind.
I have lucked out though in the sense that the principal I am working for next week is allowing me to take Monday off to study. God bless her! I have put in a lot of hours to FAR so not being able to move the exam isnt the end of the world. I just have been in a funk lately and thought it may help me regroup.
I know others have been to this point where you just want to flat out walk away from the exam. What made you keep at it? I look back and I feel as though all I ever do is fail and I dont know how I am ever going to accomplish this.
I put in the time and effort but I never seem to come out on top. I am a terrible test taker, always have been. I am a very bright woman but for some reason once that clock starts ticking everything I had stored in my brain starts to vanish.
I debated on maybe just walking away from the exam for a little while but what am I proving? Maybe I will keep plugging along till next January and if my REG expires then give up. I know, I know, I am not really the Debbie Downer blogger but lately that is how I feel. My confidence is fading and I need to get it back quickly for next week!
Hopefully this really is just a funk and I get over it soon because I am not liking this miserable me who is normally the happy go-lucky type. Best of luck to all of you testing this week!! I have quite the week cut out for me until next Tuesday so send some happy thoughts my way!
Until next time,
