Appendix Out Means REG Rescheduled

I hope everyone has had a good week!

As of my last post I was going to be sitting for REG last Saturday. Guess what? It didn’t happen.

As you know, I recently had my appendix out and I was hoping to be up to speed for the exam date. I went to work early last week and I really struggled.

Due to the pain of the surgery I have had to take a number of prescriptions. The downside of this is that a number of them made me drowsy.

So, after my first day back I had to do a self-evaluation. It basically came down to me realizing that I barely made it 3 hours at work before I was totally taxed. (Pun intended!) I decided if I could barely make it 3 hours at work that I didn’t know how I was possibly going to make it during a grueling REG exam. So hence my re-schedule.

It ended up being a good thing because I had some more struggles during then and now and I know that I would have totally bombed REG. I am now scheduled to sit for REG this week. I am feeling much better health-wise for the exam. I will sit for it on Thursday and put this REG beast behind me for good!

With January upon us I hope that all of you have made passing the CPA exam part of your New Year’s resolutions. This is my year to pass this test once and for all. I told my wife that with my appendix and various visits to the ER and doctors that 2014 is off to a crappy start. But I will change that around by passing REG and having two exams under my belt.

What will you do to make 2014 a great year for you?

Good luck studying!
