Sometimes in life you have to put your pride aside and just be human. Today I had one of those moments and it reminded me that I am trying and learning everyday.

I went out on a limb and enrolled in a class to get a certification for IT in order to set myself up for a better future once I get out of the army. This 80 hour course and certification exam is one that even IT specialists have a hard time with, so I went in knowing it would be hard. For two weeks I spent my time studying for the exam and learning way more about computers than I ever thought possible. This morning I put that knowledge to the test and for the first time in my life, I failed but I ultimately won. I won because I went out on a limb and took a class to better myself, worked in an area I’ve never worked in and put hours of studying in. I didn’t pass, but I proved to myself that I am still capable of learning and growing!
