Moving on

·2 mins

Well since getting the result of my 3rd lab attempt (FAIL for those that haven’t already seen) I’ve spent the rest of the week getting on with my normal day-to-day but also considering where did I go wrong?

On both my first and second attempt I felt OK but I had known there were weak points that I could lose out on; the first attempt I ran out of time and didn’t check any task through and on the second I had to skip one of the big TS tickets, although these did not guarantee a failure it put me well on the way.

This time I felt good, definitely better than the other attempts and to the best of my knowledge I had answered all the tasks while doing exactly as they asked and without breaking any guidelines.

When I got the score report and I found one of the lowest scoring areas was in Layer 2 I was gobsmacked, perhaps more so than the fail itself, L2 was something that if you had asked me I would have said I was 100% confident on passing no problem.

I’m not letting the failure stop me as I have come too far and am too close to turn back now but I just need to step back and recoup before I head into the battlefield again.

On a side note I’ve changed the theme on the site and I’ve done some initial testing and everything looks OK I can never test everything so if you have any issues please let me know.

P.S. Thanks to all the messages I got after my last post, as always it really helps to not feel like banging your head against a wall in times like that.
