ADR Recovery

This blog chronicles my recovery from a new type of major back surgery, Artificial Disc Replacement (ADR). I injured my back at L5/S1 when I was 9 and have always struggled with back pain, but was unable to walk after a minor car accident in ‘05. Research became my second job and with the support of my family and friends, I decided go under the knife. My intention is to keep my friends updated while I recover and help others who are suffering with back pain understand the recovery process.

The evil E! and the CPA exam

Wow - I can't believe I made it this far! This past month has dragged so slowly I thought I might go nuts.

Today I read an entire book... Then watched the "Batman" marathon on HBO. I'm trying to be more "productive" during the day. Earlier this week I was devastated with the rumors that Justin Timberlake and Cameron Diaz had broken up... That was an important moment - I realized that I really need to get a life and back away from the television and the E! Network. (I think I am dumber from watching all those "101 worst boobs in Hollywood" shows) I had completely lost track of the days of the week... It's scary how those meaningless shows just suck you in... And take away all desire to get off the sofa.

So, to enforce my new motto; I ordered my CPA books and have created a study plan for passing my remaining parts of the exam. The 10 lb books arrived today and when the FedEx guy handed them to me I had to drop them on the floor. My backs been hurting ever since. (I'm not supposed to lift more than 3 lbs) Pain or no pain, I'm going to start studying tomorrow (hence the "Batman" marathon) I think it will be hard going cold turkey from E!, but knocking out the exam will take a lot of stress off of me when I get back to work this fall.

In other news - I have no idea why I ever became an accountant. Seriously, what was SO wrong with Marketing or Horticulture?

Accounting has a better health plan than Marking and Horticulture.

I guess... but now I tend to think that all insurnance sucks in it's own way... The total of what I've paid and what I owe is now nearing $18,000!!! At least with marketing I'd get to dress in denim jacket's and call that "business professional" and leave work at a decent hour in Jan. - March. My creative outlet for the day would extend beyond coloring and formatting my excel spreadsheets..... I could be like Ann Hathaway in "The devil wears Prada".... even get a cool makeover with bangs... I could totally bring the 80's back baby!

My friend just cracked his CPA exam. I am so happy for him. We are celebrating in fine dining place tonight. I am planning to gift him something as a reward. I also took my Bar Exam last month and I wish to get a good result as well. Let’s hope for the best!
