Yeah man! My wife thought I was cheating on her based on all the nights I was spending away from her. I did the same thing as you, I booked a hotel a week before the exam so I could get away and concentrate on studying. The difference is, there was another woman in the hotel with me, but she was just a study partner I SWEAR!
I’m no woman, but why the hell do you guys need to book hotel rooms on Christmas? I can understand the need around exam time, but six months before the exam? That’s all kinds of wrong. I don’t blame your wives for being suspicious.
I am actually taking time off from holiday season to study too. We all do what we believe is necessary to achieve our goals. Hearing that other people are doing the same is a good motivation to study (specially during holiday seasons).
I definitely didn’t get a hotel room (lol) but I studied today…realized I’m not as polished on the quant stuff as I thought (forgot a lot of it)…so overall it wasn’t a very happy day…just gotta stay motivated and keep chugging I guess.
I’m finding it really hard to get back into it now though. My brain is in proper holiday mode: beach, golf, beer & wine, food are the only things I can think about. I might leave the studying this week as well and start again on Monday.
If I recall correctly, CleverCFA you mentioned in another thread that you’ve made significant progress covering the material - maybe a few add’l days wont hurt…I’m just getting into gear so def can’t afford any days off!
Yeah, I wish you guys had never mentioned that you guys thought I was ahead in the material. The panic and fear I had were my friend, now I’m feeling a little too casual about the whole thing.
I picked up where I left off today, trying to finish Fixed Income. Those last 2 readings on Asset Backed Securiteis and the pricing of them are pretty brutal. Think I’m going to have to read the CFAI text to get my head around that stuff.
