Going Concern March Madness: The Final Four #BusySeasonProblems

We now, finally, have champions in each region of GCMMBSP: Life — Waking up early; Health — Degrading mental health; Work — Working on Saturday; Potpourri — Your brain asking: "WTF am I doing with my life?" Thanks for everyone who helped decide the bitter battle between Waking up early and Loved ones' guilt trips. It was a brutal match-up but the extra time was necessary to crown a Life region champion.

It's been quite a thrill to watch this tournament shape up. Working on Saturdays and early mornings are a given; they suck and we could have predicted that they'd be here. But deteriorating mental health, while clearly a problem, may not have been what you expected to emerge from the Health region. However, seeing "WTF am I doing with my life?" also conquer the Potpourri region leads us to believe that your mental health is a more crucial BSP than anyone realized.

From here, you will decide the ultimate thorn in the side of the accounting profession. Is your psyche most vulnerable? Or is it your free time — whether it's sleeping in or working on the 7th day of the week? Let's get this Championship semi-final rolling. VOTE!
