Is audit really taking a hit from covid? Or is it just just experiencing collateral effects from the negative impact towards advisory? If the latter, why should it share the negative impact when it doesn’t benefit off the higher profits from advisory? If the former, I guess I don’t have a valid question lol

I really need to take a shower. It’s been a while and I know I smell bad. I just can’t get the motivation to go do it. This happens to me occasionally.
