A Must Keeping Up with Career Upgrade

Geezzz!!! I can't believe all these years been behind so much on the new technology today. If it weren't about pushing myself into upgrading IT career. All the future are just only anime, manga and toys. Anything else put on the side for long be forgotten becoming useless person in the end sucking same job over and over again while continue taking advantage.

Study never my favorite bits in life. But after seeing how the Governments done to this country education system, my career position was entirely threatened by it. My friends always told me there aren't anything to afraid or worry. I beg the different. I don't want to reveal and express my angers over what's going on. There is nothing to blame and understand very clear accessing to educations 13-15 years ago compared to now are huge different.

Luckily the courses are now affordable (continue to lower year by year) and much easier access in Brunei. It is good opportunities to advance, well I do feel it is considered late. There are times with no escapes in this world. The companies are now less looking into work experience without certifications. You know the papers needed to get them more attentions. I know it's not always true. You just need to think another side of the unexpected outcome.

Brunei Citizenship Exam is Over

Wow, finally the exam is over. A lot of friends give a good luck message before the test start. Sorry to disappoint them, once I started to flip the papers. Okay, after sitting in the chair, the fail light was already turned on. The two months time frame simply just too rush for forgetful person like me especially bad in writing Malay. In the end, it was just reckless gamble written exam including some English words. TERRIBLE! I just can't stop laughing myself writing down in the 'Karangan'.

But I do have to admit the examination paper is easy because many country questions and free points are giveaway. Those who took the tuition classes or already started studies and memorizes early last year will definitely no doubt going to hit big this time. Even I believe the passing rate (not me) going to be higher records all time.

Well, no point to continue feeling sad. It's over and time to move on preparing Microsoft Server 2012 exam next. I pay a lot saving on this course so this is more important reason have to study real hard.

The Despair on Upcoming Citizenship Exam

Wow! Five days of Microsoft Windows Server 2012 training really passes so fast and this feeling is like just five minute. The only thing left now is focusing more on the studies, taking another round in the training video and run more practical exam before taking the real examination anytime. This is one of the good thing about Microsoft learning. You don't have to rush to achieve something when you are not fully prepare.

Unlike the Brunei Citizenship, the examination is coming this Wednesday. People keep telling me best of luck. But sorry, this is just not happening. I am entirely not prepare and fail is the confirm word coming from my heart. The entire situation doesn't look that good and not allow to postpone next year. You had to fail first, get the confirmation letter and waste time reapply again.

I tried doing at least contribute two hours study, slowly translating the meaning and memorizing every day. But I just kept forgetting, very easily and not to mention there have different meaning require more time to search. This subject never once were my favorite in the lifetime and do well in school. After this, I am really done.

My First Microsoft Course

I really sacrifice a lot of saving (Yes, self sponsor!) on this Windows Server 2012: 20410 training course at TechOne. While I do process self experience deploying servers in real life. However depending on the DIY concepts sometimes does put you in wrong directions and even without understanding how to properly configures the servers. It will definitely put both your career and job at huge risk working in large organizations.

Many of my colleagues are self learned from experience from old days, Google search and not even 100% certified nowadays. They may even dump aside the problems without troubleshooting or forget what they may have ever done. So I really feel insecure working in such environments. I already encounter such scenario incidents so many times and it's really unhappy situations for everyone.

Things really change a lot after attending this training class. I won't say I have more confidence than ever before. But it is best to know the correct ways working with Window servers and take advantage on its (existing) features at least giving me more ideas and security. I do find some of the topics quite hard and man, study suck! Luckily, the instructor are really friendly and I was able to abuse more help from him solving my many mysteries problems that hunted me for so many years until now actually left unsolved.

The only thing that tired me was driving up and down from BSB. More than one hours drive is no joke when there are rains and sudden traffics (now in KB-Seria and Seria-Lumut) create so much frustration. Not to mention no longer allow speeding and again, encountering crazy reckless drivers. Anyway, reaching there safe and sound is what everyone wants. Two more days to go until training class finished.
