Less than three weeks away until the big day and I’ve been non-stop studying! I have a 6 day vacation planned to Mexico and I leave tomorrow. I know this is definitely not an ideal situation, but unfortunately this vacation was planned prior to my NTS debacle, so I must manage the cards I am dealt with. I have already told my boyfriend and friends that I will be waking up earlier than them to get some extra studying time in. My iPad is charged, chapters and flashcards are downloaded, and I’m ready to tackle FAR on the plane and while sitting at the pool. Would I recommend this to someone else? Probably not. However, this is an important reminder for everyone that there is more to life than studying for the CPA exam and, for our own sanity, we must still do things that we love and enjoy. When there’s a will, there’s a way!!
