Things don’t always go as planned with the CPA Exam

Christina FChristina is a [A71 product=”combo”]NINJA CPA blogger[/A71].

This blog is going to be short and sweet, in the middle of this 3rd quarter, and after the week I’ve had, simple is best.

No matter how much a person plans things out well, at least when I do it, it seems to blow up in my face.

I have been trying to get through this CPA exam for going on a year, and I have not gotten through it as I’d hoped. Every time I get buckled down and get going, something happens.

I know I’m not the only one that goes through this, but it is so extremely frustrating. I had it all planned out to take 2 exams in this last quarter of this year. That didn’t go so well.

I managed to get one exam in, without studying as I had intended, and then had to take some time off because there was no way I’d get any studying done with life going on.

I didn’t want to waste my money and take a test when I knew I wouldn’t be mentally prepared for it.

So now I sit waiting for my exam score coming in a few days and I hope I pass because with everything else going on, I don’t know that I could face another fail, even if I hadn’t done everything I had wanted to do to get studying done.

I’ll get through this test, life just needs to slow done once in a while.
