The first Saturday of June is upon us, which means CFA exam time! After 18 months of suffering and no social life, countless hours of reading, and two brutal six hour exams, this could be the END! One final six hour exam this Saturday and it could be all finally over and I can get back to normal, although I am not sure what that really is anymore. Just have to make sure I have my alarm set correctly and don’t end up being late, like last year. To all those who are sitting for the exam this weekend GOOD LUCK!
We are all set for our first vacation after two years! Sunday we’ll be leaving for a two week trip to Spain. We will be spending a few days in Madrid than head to Barcelona for a few days and spend a few days along the Costa Brava. No worries, we have excellent articles ready to go for the rest of the month! I will try to tweet and share photo’s on facebook when possible, in case anyone cares .
