On Wednesday I got my mark back for my final exam for my accounting designation. And I passed.
So now it's a waiting game. I'm just waiting for the organization to officially deem me a Certified General Accountant. And to be honest, it hasn't hit me yet.
I've been in school since I was 5. I have done 5 years of post-secondary education followed by about 3 years of courses working towards this accounting designation. That's 8 years of post-secondary! And I'm done. It's a weird feeling, that's for sure.
After 8 years of work, it seems like it should be never ending. Like I should continue to have courses that I have to be constantly working on and stressing about. My stress level just dropped dramatically. I have so many feelings at the moment. I'm happy, I'm relieved, I'm proud of myself. I pride myself on not quiting anything and I didn't quit, despite wanting to on multiple occasions. I'm pretty sure that this calls for a glass of wine.
