Life is weird! You don’t know what fate have for you. One moment you are all set and ready to go and next moment you are totally unprepared. On day you are controlling your life and next day life is controlling you. You make plan for your life and life has another plan for you. Life happens everyday. What I am saying is life is total uncertain and full of unexpected elements. This is what the beauty or the horror of the life. What life decided you, you should follow it unless you can create your own path.
You might wonder why I am being philosophical. The reasons behind these are the turn of events happened, happening and going to happen in my life. If you read my earlier blog post, you will see that I attended a app developing training at Microsoft Bangladesh. I planned to continue to develop my app making skill and participate in their app building tournament. However, that remains a plan and never tried for.
You may know that I am a training chartered accountant undergoing my training at a prominent Chartered Accountant firm named A. Qasem & Co which have became a member firm of Ernst & Young, one of the big four firm in the world, in January 2015. My training period will end at June 2015. I was planning to get a job after the training period. But I didn’t start searching for job because my CA exam result was pending. I was thinking of applying for jobs right after the result. When result was published, I found out that I have passed the 2nd out of 3 level of CA under ICAB. That means I have passed total of 14 subjects out of 18 subjects. Which means I am 4 subject away to achieve my first professional degree and become a chartered accountant. So I decided not to look for jobs but to concentrate on my study till the training period ends. By that time I will attend the CA final level exam.
Right after passing the CA Application level, I got admitted for the final level which in known as Advanced Stage. My classes begun on the 01 March and continuing everyday. It became a problem for me as it was overlapping with my MBA class schedule. Now I am trying to balance both sides and making a clear way out of the situation. In my current situation, I have to attend classes 7 days a week which will be 26 hours in a week. This making my life bitter day by day. I don’t have time to rest enough or to plan and self-study. However, it will end soon and I hope to finish my study and take adequate preparation before the exam. When I started my CA articleship, my target was to pass at least 2 level and appear one exam of final level before I finish my articleship. I have achieved my target and now made a new target to achieve. Now I want to complete the final level in one sitting. I know it will be hard but I will do it, In Sha Allah.
On the other note, my CMA result was published few days ago. It showed me that I have completed my level-1 exam and fit for admission in the level-3. I was 1 subject away from completing level 1. It took me 8 attempts to pass that subject. I wasn’t sure that I will pass the subject in this attempt. But life loves to make surprise. I passed and moved to the 3rd level. Right now I am 1 subject away from completing my level-2. I am hoping to finish it by April and start the 4th and the final level in this year.
In the vary beginning of this post, I wrote that life is full of unexpected events. You see, I was so tensed with result and getting a decent job with decent salary. Just with the result, life created a new turn of event and made me decide to study more. I was confused and it have shown me a way out. I was enjoying the life and now it have put me under pressure. I don’t mind the pressure as long as it helps me to achieve my goal.
