Out of Vacation and Into the Fire

I got chosen as fire warden for the office, so that "into the fire" bit of the title made me laugh and I am not ashamed of that. I find myself to be hilarious. The cruise was AMAZING. We were on Brilliance of the Seas sailing out of Tampa. The weather was beautiful, the food…

Tips to Surviving Tax Season

Being in the thrall of extended deadline season aka "mini tax season" has gotten me thinking about the coming tax season. I know this is something no one wants to think about. But, I also know there are going to be a lot of new accountants out there where this is going to be a…

Nervous

FAR scores come out on Tuesday. While I feel like I did okay considering the events that were happening outside of my control, I really cannot say I am confident. This is the test that has kicked my butt every time- never scoring more than a 60 when a 75 is needed all three times.…

Cruisin’ My Way to Vacation

Vacations are both amazing a necessary. Sometimes you just need a break from everything, especially when things get hectic. It's all part of self care and mental health. And while I am a huge fan of the beach and theme parks (mainly Disney World), the best getaway is the open ocean. I am 31 days…

Tomorrow is the big day. The day I take the FAR portion of the C.P.A. exam for the fourth time. My previous scores has ranged from the mid 50s to the mid 60s, so I think it is safe to say that this test is my doom. I really started to study hard the past…

Let’s Get Nerdy

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…

Does Hogwarts Teach Accounting?

So, after seeing my failing score yesterday, I cried. I cried a few times, both at the office and at home. But then I got pissed off. And I started thinking how to better my study habits and my time. I put on Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix for some good angst…
