One more month until scores, jeez!

I have been on the receiving ending of failing scores far more often than I have been on the receiving end of passing scores. Of course there are the steps of receiving a failing scores (kind of like the steps of grieving).

Denial: Oh, the state board must have posted my score online wrong. I mean come on, there’s no way I failed.

Anger: Seriously?! I studied my butt off. How could I fail, again? This is ridiculous I hate this entire process.

Sadness: I just can’t get back into studying. I put so many hours into this; I gave up so much of my life.

Resentment: What? She passed and I didn’t? She didn’t even study and she thinks Washington, DC is part of the state of Maryland.

The Blame Game: Well, if she didn’t ask me to plan that baby shower, knowing full on I couldn’t say no and how much I needed to study, I definitely would have passed.

The Cold Shoulder: I can’t even open those study books right now, or even look at them. They’re dead to me.

The Turn Around: Ok, fine I failed, but I still want to tackle this entire process and become a CPA.

The New Plan: Time for Plan K, since Plans A through J failed. What can I do differently to pass?

Starting to Study Again: Oh man, this stuff again? Ugh, how badly I just want to be done.
