    Just seeing if we could get any fun out of this. I'll start with mine..

    You know you are a CPA candidate when … you buy $100.00 head phones to better your listening experience with AUD gleim CD's

    also,

    You know you are a CPA candidate when…you start your joke at the office with “I heard this one off another71.com…”

    Five-year thread bump FTW.

    I know now that I'm a candidate because when my girlfriend asked me how I could make Roger quieter in his videos, I went through the process of what the journal entry would be.

    I didn't think about it in my head either I said it out loud…Debit Speaking Expenses, Credit Cash.

    "FACT": The odds of consecutively passing all four sections of the CPA exam on the first try: 7%.

    Me: Hold my beer...

    FAR (April 2017): 75+

    BEC (May 2017): 75+

    You know you're a CPA candidate when you salivate like Pavlov's dog when your Roger MCQ app pings your iPhone promptly at 4:00 PST every damned day…

    You know you are a CPA Candidate when you would rather jump off a cliff than listen to Angie Brown lecture about Cost Accounting!

    Oh man, I hope my posts aren't too bad/offensive! You have to see the humor in some of this crap!

    Literally my only motivation to pass BEC was so that I never have to listen to Angie Brown again. Sorry if she reads this, but she is no Olinto or Gearty. Personality level: Potato

    When your boss tells you to make a wire transfer and book it as a $14,000 gift because that is the maximum we can give before we are subject to gift tax, and you say, “That's a CPA exam question.”

    You know you're a CPA candidate when you want to strangle the next person who says, “Don't worry, you'll pass. I passed the (real estate exam, PHR/SPHR, NMLS, professional dog sitting test or WTF ever) on my first try. You'll do great!”

    REG has me in a mood tonight.

    You know you are a CPA Candidate when you log-in to another71 on a daily basis to whine, complain, rant, moan, and cry about how Difficult the CPA Exam is because no one else f***king cares or understands! – True Story!

    You know you're a CPA candidate when you're debating re-scheduling FAR for the third time because you don't completely understand Government accounting, Leases, and IFRS.

    You know you are a CPA Candidate when you sleep for 2 hours during the night before the Score Release!

    You know you are a CPA Candidate when you pray to God and ask him for “just a 75” – no more or no less!

    You know you're a CPA candidate when you're excited the family wants takeout/delivery food… not because it's what you truly want, but because it'll allow you to get to your computer faster so you can knock out an extra 20 MCQs before bed time.

    You know you're a CPA candidate when someone at work asks you a question and you start your response with, “oh… I had a Ninja MCQ about that.” to justify your qualification to answer it.

    You know you're a CPA candidate when you use “I have to study” as your excuse to avoid family… every. time. AND you don't feel bad about it because it's true!

    1. When you could have sworn you had a dog a month ago but can no longer find him.
    2. When you do find him, he bites you.
    3. You start dream speaking and yelling out redundancies your husband later tells you about such as No you moron, it's a debit.
    4. You haven't showered in three days.
    5. Your house, car and personal amenities are a disaster. Some of that stuff could have been stolen and you wouldn't have noticed.
    6. You smell. Bad.

    Lmao @ CPYay and Audarah!

    Those are great! It's nice to have some humor with this grueling process and to know that you are not the only candidate going through some crap!

    When you retype questions from your study materials, take them to work, discuss why the materials are wrong with your boss (a CPA), your company tax accountant (also a CPA), your company GAAP Auditor (also a CPA.)

    When the small people in you life are told you finally passed the last exam and they respond, “Good then she can spend time with me again.”

    When you've written the letters B, A, R, F on your white board vertically with test dates & scores next to each letter.

    When the write on/wipe off calendar on your wall has 4 Capital “T”‘s on it in case someone didn't note the dates on the white board.

    When you don't care what important things are going on in the office the last few days before an exam because you WILL be at home studying.

    When YOU are sick and tired of hearing, “I can't I have to study” come out of your mouth for the 10,000th time.

    When holidays = more study time to catch up because your behind in your study plan AGAIN.

    When you take your study materials with you because you've got a spare hour between hair & nail appointments and you know there is a quiet corner to study in at your hair salon AND you KNOW your hairdresser won't think you're crazy.

    When your hairdresser sends you a text that says, “OMG I just saw your mom! So happy for you!!! CONGRATS!!”

    When driving 4 hrs to buy wine with your oldest and dearest friend seems like an absolutely fantastic idea since you took hopefully your last exam 4 days ago and scores don't come for 10 more days.

    When the answer to “what were you doing up at 1am on a week night?” is “Hitting F5 on my keyboard repeatedly, DUH” and that seems like a perfectly reasonable answer to you because you're sleep deprived and running on adrenaline because OMG YOU ACTUALLY PASSED AND IT'S FINALLY F(*%$&*(ING OVER!!!

    You know you’re a CPA candidate when you constantly dream about MCQ questions or score release grades!

    Can't count how many times I had dreams about the chapter I was studying or days before score release and dreaming of getting my grade.

    Lmao @ cpamatt!! Hilarious!

    You know you are a CPA Candidate when coffee, soda, candy, and unhealthy food are the only things that make you feel good.

    You know you are a CPA Candidate when you frankly do not care about gaining weight. Passing the exams are all that matter in the short run!

    When you're babysitting your cousin that has ADHD and wonder what could be the worst thing that could happen if she skipped her adderal dose for a couple days. (JUST wondered) lol

    When the pictures they take of you at Prometric progressively go from “eager” to “sad & homeless.”

    when you spend your lunch time reading through A71 study groups

    when you try to sleep but your mind is racing and solving FAR problems you could not understand all day

    when you cannot remember what day of the week is because they are all the same: work, study, try to sleep and repeat

    and i wont even say anything about shaving legs- whats that? 😀
