Doing the CA one on Tuesday, kinda in the same boat. Feeling much more relaxed than the NY one a few years back. Not sure if it’s extra confidence after passing one or just not giving a damn after the past year 😂

Moved to industry thinking it’d be easier and less stressful. Definitely easier but the stress now is coming from never knowing if I’m doing a good enough job because I’m not as busy as I used to be. I feel like I could get fired at any point. Also, there’s a huge emphasis here on meetings and socializing, whereas I’m more used to getting my stuff done and keeping the client happy. Can anyone relate? Is this what anxiety feels like?
