There’s a light…

At the end of the tax season tunnel. While Friday is business return deadline and everyone is stressed, we have just over a month until freedom. And for me, that freedom means actual weekends and Disney World. Things have gotten to a slightly more manageable than they were. I'm settling into this senior role with…

Long Time, No Write

Hello everyone! I know I haven't said much at all this year (I'm not counting my birthday announcement. That was like five words), but it's officially half-way through tax season. I figured it was past time to check in. This season is kicking my butt. The new tax laws are tough to figure out, and…

I’m Still Here!

We are a week and a half away from the first deadline of tax season. By January first, all W-2s, 1099s, 1098s, etc must be prepped, mailed out, and filed. As such, I have been super busy. I have averaged about 53 hours a week the past three weeks, and I am in a constant…

2018: A Reflection

Gosh, what a year. I passed the CPA exam, swam with sea turtles, started with a personal trainer, and did a bunch of stuff in between. As for my 2018 goals, let's review together: Pass the CPA exam- check! Lose 10 pounds and be healthier- I could have done better here. I got really close…

Certified Princess Accountant

Three years. Four sections. 15 attempts. One C.P.A. I did it. I finally passed all four sections you guys. I am so relieved to never have to study or take another test again (unless I want to get another certification). I get to have a life and hobbies! My word of the year was perseverance.…

Post-Test Reflection

I have no stinkin' clue on how I did. There were quite a few things on the exam that were not in my review course, so I had to answer those as best as I could. Some of it was super easy. A few things could go either way. All I know is I will…

Fingers Are Crossed

Tomorrow I take REG! If (when) I pass I will be able to FINALLY apply for my CPA license. I'm taking it easy tonight. Might look over a few notes, but I don't want to cram and tire out my brain. The test isn't until noon, so I will sleep in a little bit and…

The Final Countdown

I take REG on Friday. My last section of the CPA exam. I won't find out my score until Dec. 11, so I am really hoping Santa will grant my Christmas wish and make me a CPA. Mostly because I don't want to study anymore, but also because those letters come with more opportunity and…

One Week In!

How's your NaNoWriMo projects going? I am currently sitting at less than 3k words, but I have only had one day where I did not write anything. I also had my story idea change on Monday, so that has also had a factor in my word count. Actually, it almost feels like I'm writing this…
