Rollie is a NINJA CPA blogger.
I come here today to tell you of the disappointment that I received Tuesday morning on Cinco de Drinko, er I mean Cinco de Mayo.
I woke up at my normal time to go check my score and to my dismay I received a 72 on BEC.
I was very disappointed and I did not even tell my wife before I left for work. I am glad when I woke up in the middle of the night to find the NASBA website down, otherwise I would have trouble going back to sleep.
In fact, I had a dream that NASBA sent me an email that my score was between 86 and 92.
My wife and I are both employed at the corporate office for the Good Samaritan Society and every couple of months we deliver “Meals on Wheels.”
I broke the news to her when I picked her up. At the same time, I launched into a rant about how my REG expires at the end of the year and I am wasting our money. She tried to slow my brain down to make me realize that we will get through this together.
Secretly, I know that she wants me home more and to use the money to travel. Secretly, I know that she is sad that I am never home for supper.
She knows that I have hard time studying at home because of all the fun distractions. Plus she will try to yell from the other room to have me come help with a chore when I am in the middle of a NINJA MCQ session with my headphones on.
I was feeling so confident and ready to get a second pass under my belt. I wanted to get the momentum moving and be done before the One Direction concert in Winnipeg this summer.
Well, plans have changed again and I have to keep moving forward if I want to succeed. For the record, my wife loves One Direction and was sad to see Zane go.
I take AUD at the end of May and am looking forward to passing. As you know from past blog posts, I really hate AUD as it is so dry. But forcing myself to keep pounding NINJA MCQ will help me succeed.
For the NINJAs that did not succeed and are feeling down, my college accounting classmate reminded me of a phrase our professor would say: “Just keep swimming, just keep swimming.”
It was in reference to our classmates in Intermediate Accounting and those who were planning to take the CPA exam to never give up and to remind us the shear volume of material that the CPA exam covers.
See you on the forums and just keep swimming!
