Your nerves might be a little high with exam results about to (finally) drop. Our guts turn, and we get nervous because the high standards we set for ourselves and the high standards, it takes to pass the CPA Exam. Don’t take this the wrong way; high standards will get you far. They motivate you to a high quality of life and inspire others to follow suit. However, the bar being set so high means there will likely be some times where you don't clear it. Reality can hit hard when a mishap comes. Life hiccups and things don’t go as planned. There is a blank feeling, some emptiness, and a bit of embarrassment.
