There are 35 more days till my exam… I am enrolled in the module with CPA and I feel like with the weekly assignments I barely have any time to actually study the material… Plus on top of work (it’s busy season), I feel like I have barely anytime to study which is scary! I saw a similar blog created for CPA exams so I thought I’d try to make my own. This is just a place for me to vent and express my feelings about what I’m going through.
Anyways, my biggest struggle is finding the time to study and often I find I get way too overwhelmed with everything I have to do, I spend way too much time planning out what I have to do and when I have to do it. I rarely ever stick to these goals because I tell myself, “ I am tired, I need to get rest for work tomorrow, I can finish this tomorrow night. “ WRONG.
This is the wrong attitude to have. I have to create deadlines for myself and I cannot sleep until I meet my deadline. It is now about 6:50pm. I usually like to sleep around 10:30. Let’s see if I can do this. I’m going to go down and make some tea to keep me awake and tackle my to do list.
Tonight I will study:
- Cost of capital
- Time value of money
It is now 10pm. I decided I am going to do one more pomodoro session and go to bed. I didn’t finish the readings, probably only half way done… But I desperately need sleep. Looking back at tonight I definitely wasted about an hour doing things like checking my phone and other random things because I got done one section and decided to take a break that turned into a super long break. No. I will stop doing that. It’s good to use the pomodoro technique, work for 25 minutes, break for 5. and it is timed and it will beep once you’ve maxed out your break. Going to start it now and hopefully get one more section done before bed. I really need sleep. Today at work I was not functioning at all… the problems of a CPA student.
