Switch of mood

Another day has passed today. Yes, I’m studying. But I’m not in such a desperate mood yet. Is it because I’m so prepared? Not at all. My score on the GLEIM CD is far below the acceptable level. I should spare more time for study so that I can be strong at any topical area. And I should this and that, and then I should this and that… well, I mean, there still remain a lot for me to cover before the exam. I think I’m still slack! And I also know that it is only I who can get myself tensed. I have to change the mood now.

For a starter, I’ll switch my first language from Japanese to English, which means I think in English in most of the time in a day. I do it because I'm neither a native speaker of English nor a returnee and the USCPA exams are given in English, of course, which I will sit for in U.S. I have to prepare for it from now so as not to have any trouble adjusting myself to such an irregular situation. I did it when I prepared myself for TOEIC. Thinking in English all day long is possible in Japan, too. I have to use Japanese when I talk with people around me, of course. But when I think alone in mind, or when I take notes, I do them in English. It’s a good training for me. The arcane English in USCPA exam questions are overwhelming, and so I think this kind of prep will work out.

And I have to sit at the desk as long as possible. In USCPA exams, I have to keep sitting at the desk for about four hours. I cannot keep concentrating on them with my attitude as it is now. I have to get used to sitting at the desk working on USCPA material for many more hours in a day.

Do it now, nn, or you’ll just cry later regretting over your having been slack when you shouldn’t have.
