I've been there – and statistically, most CPAs have been too.
It doesn't matter that you failed – it matters what you're going to DO about it.

Well I failed again. I feel so helpless, even stupid maybe after reading others have passed and are done. But I know, I have to study and study everything. I guess I better pay for REG again before I spend the money making myself feel better. It's good to know I'm normal, at least that's what Jeff said, so I'll trust him. In my mind I was going to pass this one and the rest was going to be a cake walk. I want to take my business to the next level, not just tax and bookkeeping but contend for a higher clientele. I really want to get out of the Franchise Tax mode where my business is just like the others. But anyway, I know if I don't study, I won't pass. Yes, I'm venting, I really don't want to tell my friends and family I failed again. So since I am normal, tell me what to do. Please?May 23, 2019 at 9:46 am #2421180AsjaParticipant
I'm not telling anyone other than my husband about the exam, and I'll tell everyone once I pass…Only occasions that I'd have to leave the house this year are: dinner with MIL once a month, Father's day, three birthday parties, thanksgiving, and christmas… I take the kids to the playground almost every morning for a few hours, and then I just sit and study for 30 min at a time and then handle the kids, make dinner, minor chores…anyways..I'm rammbling too.May 23, 2019 at 10:51 am #2421456May 23, 2019 at 1:00 pm #2421774AsjaParticipant
Yes, except, momentarily is an adverb (from the blog post..:)

@Tncincy- Please know that everyone from the forum and whoever knows what you are passing through are with you in this tough journey. Do not even think of giving up. Remember the saying that “Who perseveres, reaches the mountain.” You have to be mentally strong and know that you will eventually get this done. I wished that the result was different, but do know that this is only part of the battle and you have a lot to be proud of. You will conquer this war and get this done. What's important is to believe in yourself and keep grinding at this thing. The most important thing for you is to start fresh and stay in the moment, determined, and just get back to work. Let the cards play out and there will be one time where you will be celebrating because you were able to persevere and dig deep to find out a way to conquer this process.
