So I’ve totally bit the bullet and decided to jump right on the whole certification band wagon. I’ve schedule (and paid for) the next computer certification test that I’m going to take: the CompTIA Network+ exam on March 20th, a mere two weeks away. I think I know the material pretty solidly, so it’s just a matter of reviewing it all for the next two weeks. I’m feeling pretty confident about it right now.
This means that my goal of getting my cross-platform certifications in what seemed to some people to be a ridiculously short amount of time when I first told them my intentions will hopefully be realized. That makes me rather proud. It also makes me kind of broke, but I guess I can’t have it all. :) I’m hoping that my investments in these certifications really do pay off somewhere down the line so I can point to them and demand more money for my formidable knowledge.
That is the whole point of these silly certifications, isn’t it? To prove what I know and to point to the money I spent on them so people will give me more money in return? What a strange, strange economic system our society has developed to manage proof-of-knowledge requests.
