CFA can be depressing
I was just thinking about that old stat where they say something like only 20% of the people who enroll in the program go on to become charterholders.
My old study group used to have 7 people in it. I’m the only one out of all of them who went on to become a charterholder. One of them is still trying, she’s on L3 for the second time. So, there’s still hope for one more from my group. But, everyone else, quit. Some folks failed L2 three times and hung it up. But damn, 1 ouf of 7. They were good people too. Some of them even had jobs that are way cooler than mine. I’m not going to say I’m the lucky one, I worked my dick off and earned this, but, it’s still sad. I guess in the moment I really thought that all of us would pass and go on to form a super pac sort of thing of best friends - hell, I even started sleeping with one of them before she moved to Chicago and ripped my heart out - I only keep in touch with 2 of them now.
Damn CFA program. It’ll change you. Feel bad for those who couldn’t make it.
¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It be like that sometimes.
