QL ST1 DAY16
Was lazy as fuck today. Felt like kicking myself and at the same time just wanting to lie down and do nothing. Ironic isn’t it?
Boss cancelled 2nd meeting for the day. So ended trying to read up on AWS. Not sure why I was drawn to it. Maybe because the most basic certification exam is just $100 and the tutorials and online training is freely given by Amazon themselves.
Turns out that with the 25% discount from the training/cert company from yesterday, I could get an exam voucher that does not expire. So I don’t need to feel pressured to take that exam right away (note that this is different from the Amazon exam in the previous paragraph). But still, not sure if I will take it as it is still expensive. Also, I want to 2 or more trainings from them. So I don’t know which to choose from (if ever). Both trainings I have in mind can help me land a better job if I pass the certifications, but they are of slightly different paths. One is more on mobile space, while the other is not.
So it turns out my kids’ comforters are worn and starting to tear. Given that it’s still cold, they need to either keep using what they have or we buy newer ones (the ones they have are about 2 years old or older now). So wife tells me “The kids’ comforters need to be replaced… If that’s ok with you”. The “If” statement got me. It’s like, when did she ever ask for my approval to buy something? Before she’d just tell me outright “we need this/that” and expect me to get it right away whether or not it is really needed. So I’m not sure if it’s AM having me act more alpha in the relationship, or mogul working on having us save more. In either case, I hope it gets way better.
Still no word from the company I interviewed for weeks ago. Last thing I heard was that they although the feedback from all interviewers was generally positive, they want to interview more to be sure.
With regards to interviews, I got a message over LinkedIn from a recruiter earlier. Maybe this would be much better. I don’t know really.
In either case, here’s to manifesting a better life for me and my family.
Question for the day:
What’s really holding you back from achieving your full potential?
Not sure really. Used to blame my wife and kids for my failures. But maybe because there’s a part of me that says I’m not good enough?
