4. Conclusion

To tell the truth, the certificates above have never contributed straight to my career or higher income.
This kind of stuff is something I have to "grow".
As it were, I still have seeds in my hands.
I have to seed in cultivated soil and water them day after day.
Then, they will sprout someday.

"You just get any certificates anyway!!"

Some adults told me that.
Now and then, I think what a nonsense the word is.
There is no guarantee that they will do.

I know I am bossy, but let me declare that certificate is just a means.
