Away Away, Far Away!

Post by ScooterJoh » September 1st, 2015, 2:41 pm

Hey all!

I'm taking some time off from gaming and being on my PC in general as I'm studying for the 2nd part of an upcoming certification test that I'm told is REALLY hard to pass. I passed the 1st test, and the lady there was all like, "wow you must be really smart." and such and went on about how she has people who take it over and over and over and over and can't pass.... made me feel good but at the same time nervous because I know the 2nd part is more difficult.

Anyway, trying to get this certification to hopefully get me past an online schools admission process so I can go back to college, get a degree and hopefully change careers.

As such I'm swearing off my home PC usage for awhile so I can study. Although once I get to all my practice tests I'll be back on it, but only for taking the practice tests.

Go Scooter, go, you can do it! :thup: I'll keep you in my prayers as it sounds like more than just studying for a test.

Good luck! And good choice!

I will pray as well. What certification, if you would answer when you come back?

Passed A+ on the 10th. Got my Cert by the 13th. Updated my Transcript, they verified it, and sent it back to admissions.

On the 18th I got a call that I was accepted to start on Nov. 1st! YAY!!!

So I'm adding 15 to 20 hours a week to my already full schedule! I'm looking forward to it!
