Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

No seeing green for me … Happy Regulation Study Day!

Tis’ be the day that a lot of people celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and dress in green. For me, hey, maybe I will use a pen that has green ink.

To be honest, I am a little behind on my NINJA Study Plan because I have had one of those “life happens” for two weeks or so besides my headaches.

On the flip side, for the first time in my life of studying for 8 years, I have a little flex, so I am just updating my spreadsheet a little and adding a few more hours per day over the next two weeks to still end up with the same hours on the NINJA Study Planner.

I think that is one of the best features of Jeff’s guide. He realizes that “life happens” and it is not necessary 100% all the time a procrastination situation. Therefore, Jeff designed the study guide to be so flexible.

Here in Alaska, the “I’m getting sick, need to leave work early because the sun is out…” is beginning to happen. We have over 12 hours of daylight and 30 degrees feels more like 60-70 degrees in Florida with a nice breeze and all you want to do is lay in a chair with a light blanket, your sun glasses on, and a cup of coffee while you look at the mountains that are 360 degrees at varying distance around you.

People are outside walking dogs, chipping ice, and actually washing their cars. Trust me, the last thing you want to do is study. Normally, I would be checking through our camping gear and sealing up the tents, while making sure all the fishing poles were all in working order.

Nevertheless, there is a reason for me to fight through all of these injuries right now and push myself to study for the CPA Exam. So, in the morning, I will be on the porch or in bed working through regulation questions and celebrating St. Patrick’s Day by writing notes in a green pen!

Study On!
