Hello folks. I would not say it was a good week. The work, I planned to do, did not get done due to some pressing client needs. Also, in the fantastic summer that we are having, the productivity slumps in the afternoon.

Hello folks. It feels different not to draft My Week. Also, I think I have got out of the habit of blogging already.
I am in the revision phase of my first CIOT exam. TBH, I do not even understand the past exam questions let alone answer them. They are like solving a puzzle, before applying your tax knowledge. Continue reading “Studies: Revision Phase”
