Indeed I did DragonGorge, and it was also my first course and certification I had ever taken, plus I don't have any lengthy education, or for that sake, a long history of relevant business experience. (Of course, as I am a community guy, I've been in the hacking world for a long time.)
Yea, during the course and the certification it became increasingly harder, hence the reason the writing style changed to display my frustration ;D
I'd say it's exploded brain cells, it was nice to be in several scenarios where you have to think outside the box and come up with clever solutions :)
Well, in the beginning she said she understood I had to study most evenings where I could be at her place 10pm or so. After a couple of weeks the whining began, but during the actual exam I had specifically told no whining as I will lose concentration completely, she respected that and I am glad she did.
Afterwards though, she began to whine again but that day when I got the email, nothing could as previously said, ruin my mood. Passing a certification is just a great feeling when it's been a long and hard journey.
The reason she became my ex, was not related to OSCE, even though it could've been a cool story ;D "The only certification that will make your wife or girlfriend leave you" xD (I broke up with her, as I realised I now had OSCE and didn't need a girlfriend, jk, it was for other personal reasons ;D In short, she was bad for me (I know that most women complain about a lot of things (because it's socially accepted in most cultures), but this one was over level 9000), but it's the kind of bad that feels a little good hehe )
Thanks for the feedback / response, I enjoyed writing it :-)
