Finding it extremely difficult to study for the CPA exam and in general be productive/work towards my goals this year due to constant anxiety around potentially being laid off, being “high risk” for coronavirus, and lack of work-life balance.

I also took the other 3 around the same time and failed all of them. I tried to fit them all into a semester but that wasn’t realistic for me. Fast forward a year later after I got out of PA and went into industry cont.
