Motivation Arrives and Brings along a Friend

JoMarie is a weekly NINJA CPA Blogger.

Hello Fellow NINJAs!!!

I hope everyone’s studying sessions are going a lot better than mine. I’ve had a rough week. First of all I could not find my motivation. I was just completely worn out!!

So I took a step back and said to myself, wait a minute, why are you giving up now? You might be done with this whole exam process in a little less than 5 weeks once and for all!! Then I snapped out of it.

I found my motivation again. On Saturday, I studied all day and got on a roll again. Woke up on Sunday, not feeling right. So I tried to shake it off and continued to study.

I was in the middle of watching the cash flows lecture when it hit me. Motivation brought some company, the FLU!!!! Body aches, fever, chills, you name it, I had it. I was in bed for two days!! Two days I could not afford to lose!!

Whenever I felt up to it, which really wasn’t a lot, I would try to read the NINJA Notes. Good thing I keep a copy of them on my night stand.

Once I found the energy to get up and go, I went to work. I would work a few Wiley MCQs during lunch and listen to Jeff’s NINJA Audio on my commute to and from work.

Here I am three days later, still not feeling 100% and having a real hard time getting my grove back again. I’ve worked the ELL Plan in here and there, but still not steadily.

This coming weekend is score release weekend and a party weekend at my house. My little one is turning 2 on the 4th (score release day) and my older daughter is making her First Communion. So between cupcake baking, cooking, and hosting parties I need to catch up with lectures and more insane MCQs. I was originally taking the weekend off to prepare and host the party. I will let you know how it goes!!

To those of you waiting for scores, good luck!!
