    If you look at my scores and dates, you might think this process was easy for me…but it really wasn’t. I first started studying for Reg in Feb 2011, but I wasn’t able to take the exam until August because I went through 3 bouts of tonsillitis and finally tonsillectomy. By the time I took Reg, I was feeling so down. I felt like I just didn’t get it and maybe I had to work as a tax preparer for 2 years to prepare for Reg. The curve must have been huge because I passed. I was shocked. I used that pass as a springboard for the rest of my sections. I knew I did not want to repeat any sections so I had to do things right the first time. This meant endless months of studying on and on. I seriously had no life. I hated my life and at times it did make me cry and I was pretty depressed the whole time. What’s worse was that I was an auditor at the same time. It’s a stressful occupation. Another thing is that I could never avoid wasting precious hours in traffic. Literally everything in my life was put to a halt because of these exams. My social life, dating life, career, my health, and my sanity. This experience has taught me so much. It has really helped me appreciate all the little things in life. After all, I know how it is to not live.

    I really have so much respect to those who do this while having a family. I wouldn’t have been able to do it. And last, but not least, I couldn’t have done this without everyone at A71! I was so lonely throughout this process, but this forum is such a morale booster. I seriously spent more time on this site than studying! Haha. I want to stop by once in a while to see how everyone is doing. Particularly to the following ladies: CPA628, Jomarie, Kricket, Mrs 300, and Peanut. And to the following freaking hilarious goofball dudes: goodluck2everyone and CPATerminator (congrats you two).

    Thanks for this wonderful site Jeff! It is truly a great asset for our sanity during this process. 🙂 And you are a very kind and giving person.

    Aww I made it to your post, I feel special:)

    Though we only really started to communicated these past month, you've been really helpful & nice! I couldn't imagine studying FAR without your comments and support on A71. I was one of those people who thought you had it easy, because you passed it on first try and I never saw you really complain. But I was wrong, you fought through this and came out as a winner. You deserve it and your hard work paid off. Please, stick around, don't leave us!!

    Enjoy your studyless days and I wish you all the success you deserve!!

    I don't think I can leave…at least not until you guys all finish too. This place has been like a home to me! Haha. And you don't remember me complaining? Kinda broke down towards the last 10 days or so. It was kinda embarrassing….lol.

    And I'm so happy to hear you passed FAR. Just the right amount of studying. 🙂 BEC should feel refreshing…practically half the size of FAR!

    Good to know that you'll stick around:) Haha no I don't remember that, but then again, I was pretty much crying every day leading up to the exam…so comparison to that, everyone's complaining seemed normal. Lol

    I cannot believe that I'm tearing up after reading a post on A71. 🙂 I'm so happy for you. Congratulations. I hope you do something really nice for yourself now that this is over. It's encouraging to see what others have to endure and overcome to pass this monster. Thanks for the shout out. I hope to make you proud over the next month.

    Good luck in your career and life. Please stop by once in a while! You will be missed!
