For those of you who have been following things over on the Tech Blog, you already know that I passed my A+ Certifications on Monday. That’s a relief!!!
I did, however, find it odd that I got so stressed out about them. I can remember in HS being so incredibly good at taking tests that I never sweated a test. I was one of those geeky kids who actually looked forward to tests as a time to shine, and ruined the grading curve for everyone else
But that was then, and this is now. It was a real strong reminder of what a different person I am now. Even though the abuse was going on in my childhood, I was always convinced that I was smart. “Gifted” if you will. I never doubted that. But now, after all the depression and other mental illness that the abuse spurred in my adult life, I have huge doubts about how smart I really am. I guess, while I may not miss the cockiness I had about it when I was younger, I do miss the confidence. Hopefully more things like this will help me start to get it back.
