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…

It’s Go Time

It's November first, which means I have 29 days until my last CPA exam AND NaNoWriMo has started. Because of said final exam, I am not expecting to hit the 50,000 word mark this year. I will be happy if I manage to write anything at all. If you want to join me, sign up…

I’m on Vacation!

I'm going to be quiet this week. I am sailing with my husband on Brillance of the Seas to the west Caribbean. I'll be back next week, and I promise to tell you all highlights. This cruise is to celebrate our second wedding anniversary (which is today, yay!) and my husband's birthday (which is tomorrow,…

Near… FAR…

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…
