Three Weeks Until FAR & Needing Some Urgency

24 days ~ just a little over 3 weeks until my rematch with FAR. Oddly, I have yet to feel a sense of urgency. Is it because there isn’t quite enough pressure (I work WAY better under pressure), or am I simply burned out?

I think the latter is more plausible. It is really hard at times to keep my eye on the prize, especially on a sunny day with my kids wanting my attention. They are ALWAYS the more appealing choice. ?

I didn’t get as much done this last week as I had hoped. It took me a bit to shake off all that goes along with being part of a wedding. I was able to complete my lectures on present value, annuities and operating leases. I also knocked out quite a few multiple-choice questions.

I definitely have a long way to go. I am still behind my personal time line, but am hoping to be able to make up some ground this week.

On Friday and Monday, I watched the Another71 forum score release thread. It is always encouraging to me when I see people complete this atrocious beast of an exam. I also feel the pain of those who come close, but not quite close enough. ?

Witnessing the success and disappointments of others, along with sharing my own, ultimately reminds me that I am not alone in this journey, and there is a VERY bright light at the end of the tunnel. Congrats to all who passed so far this window, and keep on keeping on to those, like me, that have a ways to go.
