Vacations are Bad for Studying

But are SO worth it for the mental health benefits.

You may have noticed I have been quiet the past week. Well, I was on a staycation/ vacation. I spent the beginning of the week spending some quality time at home and doing things with my husband before ending the week at the beach for the second annual girls’ weekend I do with my mom, aunts, and best friend.

I got to relax and not worry about anything until I got home last night. Then I realized I did not look at any of my CPA exam notes for ten days. I had the intention to- I downloaded my notes onto my new Kindle Paperwhite with the intention of reading over them while lounging on the beach. Instead, I reread Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and half of Prisoner of Azkaban for the hundredth time (no regrets there).

I have exactly a month before I take the FAR exam for the fifth time. It’s past time to get serious, but I have a plan: do nothing on the weekends until after the 24th (with one exception for Fantasy Football League draft day). I need to crack down on doing multiple choice questions and practice exams and copying my notes so I get something ingrained in my head. Easier said than done, I know, but it is a necessary evil. My scores so far have not been great, so I really have to focus if I want to pass this exam (and I REALLY want to pass).

So, to all of my family and friends, I am not mad at you. I am not going through a mental health down spiral. I am ignoring you. I am studying. I still love you. See you Labor Day weekend.
