“Not Afraid” of the CPA Exam

Nisha is a weekly NINJA CPA Blogger.

Hello everyone, hope you’re studying right along. Here’s my weekly update.

I’ve finally finished off the lectures for Contracts, Sales, Agency, and Property. I say finally because it was my goal to be done with those topics last week, so I’m behind one whole week.

Recently, I feel like I've only been making small movements studying. I really do need to step it up a notch…or a few.

My goal was to get through all the lectures and once through Wiley MCQs by the end of April. I lost last weekend and I'm going to lose another this month for wedding planning in Texas, so that leaves just one solid weekend to study hard and get through the remaining lectures.

I’ve realized I like to work on the wedding planning after I get off work and it may be more effective for me to perhaps consider logging in my study hours in the early morning. It’s quiet and it’s when I’m the most productive.

I’m a sucker for any type of motivation quotes, songs, lecture, or anything for that matter. I was listening to “Not Afraid” by Eminem on Pandora (my study buddy- I do not and cannot study in pin drop silence) the other day and I stopped my MCQs to just soak in the lyrics to the chorus.

I'm not afraid (I'm not afraid)
To take a stand (to take a stand)
Everybody (everybody)
Come take my hand (come take my hand)
We'll walk this road together, through the storm
Whatever weather, cold or warm
Just lettin you know that, you're not alone
Holla if you feel like you've been down the same road (same road)

The first thought that came to mind was – we’re all in this together. I’m not sure how most people would feel after reading/hearing the lyrics but I almost felt…relieved.

There are battles, tests, and challenges everyone faces almost every day but we all have one thing in common, if we fall, we will find someone who went “down the same road.”
