Monday Hour One Weekly Recap – Week #6

Read all of my Monday Hour One posts here

This week went relatively well. I went out to play Pokemon Go twice as planned and did not fall behind on other goals like the week before. We also watched quite a few shows on Netflix including the new season of Selling Sunset 🏘️.

We decided to postpone grocery shopping to Monday (tomorrow) as I am taking the day off and we ordered takeout 3 times this week. If you asked me 3 months ago if I knew I would be considering taking out 3 times per week is too much, I would say you are joking.

With my CPA Core 2 exam just over a month away, I have been on track with the study plan I created. Even though I didn’t study as much as I planned to on the weekend, I am still making very good progress so far. If things continue to go as planned, I should have a week or so left before the exam to do some β€œlast-minute studying” and truly relax (which I was unable to for Core 1).

Last week, I mentioned I was waiting to hear back from an important contact but the only update I got after following up was that they will reach out if/when they are ready. I am a little disappointed but I think as long as I write good content, an opportunity will come.

What Would I Do Different Next Week?

I haven’t been reading as much as I would like otherwise I would be finished with Enough Bull by now. I will have to pick up my pace if I still want to reach my goal of 40 books πŸ“š in 2020 (currently on my 14th).

I have also fallen behind on the WordPress Course I am taking on so I will have to schedule back some time this week. However, I need to remind myself that studying for my Core 2 exam is my priority for the next month or so. There are also some changes happening at work which I will be able to share next week and I am beyond excited.

To study and working hard πŸ₯‚
