Today is the day! When this posts I will be taking my CMP exam. It wasn’t until this last week, as I got closer to the end of the studying process, that I began to see just how much time and energy went into preparing for this test. It never felt like enough, except when it felt like WAY too much. Hopefully I know enough to pass and put this all behind me. 
It will be at least sixty days before I learn my fate as a CMP. Am I in, or am I out? In the meantime, I am utterly ecstatic about reading again. Reading anything that isn’t CMP related. A real book. A magazine. More than the first two paragraphs of an article on Yahoo. It is going to be amazing! I’ve already picked out the first book which will reintroduce me to the world of pleasure reading. I will read it after the test when I take myself out to a celebratory lunch. Oh Happy Day, indeed!

I decided to move my CMP Exam timeline up. I’ll now be taking the test on July 20 which means I have 51 more days of non-stop cramming meeting and event planning logistics into my brain. I’m already dreaming in flashcards. I’ve complete cut myself off from reading anything that’s not CMP related. The magazines are piling up and my Kindle has a thick coat of dust on it.
Naturally all I can think about - besides what accrual accounting is versus cash accounting - is what book I’ll start reading immediately after I complete the exam. I just learned about Pulphead, a collection of pop culture essays by John Jeremiah Sullivan. This sounds right up my alley, well aligned with my love of Chuck Klosterman. It is on my To Read list for sure, along with a dozen others. Oh how I miss pleasure reading!
*P.S. I’m having trouble seeing images on Tumblr on my work computer, but everything looks perfect at home on my Mac. I wonder what’s going on. Is anyone else experiencing technical issues?
