Pressures of studying & working at the same time!

The pressure is really starting to build up in our household now as I fast approach my exam days.

To be honest I don’t really feel ready at all and I’m panicking. I’ve got that sinking feeling that I’m not going to do too well no matter how much I revise. I promised myself before I started I would give this a good go & try to pass them at the first attempt.

I keep thinking, why am I doing this? Why am I putting this pressure on myself? Then I remind myself it’s all about building a career for myself & the children. One that can hopefully provide us with a more financially secure future.

It’s not been easy by any stretch of the imagination. There have been times when I’ve missed bath & bed time due to my course study times & at times I’ve just wanted to give up but i’ve kept going. If anything i think I’m more determined just to finish the course simply to prove to myself that i can do this. Plus I’m not prepared to put in all these hours for nothing at the end of it. I’m not a quitter!

The funny thing is I’m still not sure if I can see myself being an accountant forever but for the security its easier to do something you know rather than something you’re not sure of.


I keep thinking to myself that the end is in sight. In 3 weeks time I would have sat my 2 exams and be looking forward to the summer with the toddlers along with lots of fun and adventures to come. Plus the dreaded exam result day!
