I really like the flashcards. They seem to help me retain more and pick up on details I previously missed.
Im still anxiously awaiting a letter in the mail from the West Virginia state board that says I have the green light. When and if my application is approved, I think Ill have a mini celebration!
I finally made it through all of the material once. This felt like a big accomplishment in itself, but I realize I still have more studying to do.
Something else I accomplished while finishing up round one of study material is that I decided to run for town recorder. Ive been a town council member for almost four years (two terms) and I thought I wouldnt run again while going through the CPA exam process. Hopefully Ill be moving from council member to recorder.
I took the time to run around town, knock on doors and get all of the required signatures. It wasnt something I wanted to do, but I learned more about the people in the community.
Unfortunately, our very small, very country town suffers from a lack of interest. I can see some positive changes may be on the horizon, and I want to continue to be a part of that.
I havent mentioned to many people that I plan to sit for the exams. Its not something someone shouts from the rooftop anyway, but Ive been particularly careful to keep it to myself. I hadnt mentioned it to my parents until they started asking me about my recent hermit like habits.
Ok, Ill be truthful. I guess Im not very confident that I will be able to pass the exams so I figure the fewer people that know, the better. There, I said it.
Now that I NINJA blogged that tidbit of information, maybe I can move on and find that confidence. Happy studying!
