CPA Review School of the Philippines (CPAR) the best

Helloooooooooooo! I'm back with my name three acronym-letters longer. Nope, it's not an ATTY but it's CPA. Yes, I am now a Certified Public Accountant

My almost 5-month review at Manila was not easy at all. I had to summon up courage to study away from home and had to learn that alongside the word independence should be the word responsibility. 

The Board Exam

After Business Law and Taxation which happened to be my last subject, I felt that I am more close to passing than failing though I felt incredibly upset for taking the exams too lightly. Although I caught the flu on the last day of the exam but still my confidence was sky-high and failing was even out of my options.  But all these high hopes had changed the day  the results came. I became so paranoid not because I didn't fare well in the test but because I made more than five erasures . Yes! I have made more than 5 erasures ( 6 to be exact) out of stupidity and carelessness.  I really cannot resist letting the numbers kicked out because of such stupidity. They say an erasure is a mortal sin in the board exam and it's a big no no. Nonetheless, I took the risk. So I guess that explains why I only got 86% in that particular subject.

I have experienced what every CPA candidates goes through. Unexplainable nervousness, butterflies in the stomach and the list goes on. I could still remember the high anxiety I felt while waiting for the results. I am sure that time that every CPA candidate was filled with prayers and hopes of passing this dreaded exam and I am not an exception to that. Negative thoughts came pouring in. 

That precise moment when you scroll your mouse down to see your name in the roster of new CPAs was an extremely extremely nerve-wracking experience. It felt like my heart is going to burst out of my chest and I  found the world blurry for a moment . I nearly collapsed but it was the best feeling in the world. I could still remember how I screamed and cried out of joy. I was at cyberzone in SM Manila that time. Everyone was giving me this heartless stare and their soo not comfortable look. But hey, for one moment in my life, just one moment, I OWN THE WORLD :)  I just couldn't believe myself shouting and crying and not caring about what people would say about me. Mura kog nadaog sa loto ( I feel like I just won the lottery) haha. 

My mom, dad and relatives were very proud of me that they have to hang my tarpaulins in every tree (exaggeration)  around my hometown with my huge pixelized face. 

Passing the CPA board exam is one hell of a great start! I'd become someone great someday! To God be the glory! Qatar here I come :) InshaAllah!
