Checking my cervix-need help!

Okay, probably silly but bear with me!
​So, I have been checking my cervix for about a month. I found it! Whoo! Haha. Never thought I would say that. I have learned the high, medium, and low part of it. 
​My question involves the texture part. Everyone says it's hard or it's soft. Am I supposed to be feeling the sides or the tip where the opening is?
