transcripts and graduation

For me, part of this whole going back to school process has been allowing myself to let go of my past. My past fuck-ups to put it simply. This week I applied for fall admission to UNM, as well as jumping through the hoops to graduate from CNM with my Lib Arts AA this spring. Which has meant I've had to collect all of my various transcripts. Looking at my ASU transcript makes me cringe. It makes me remember a very unsure time in my life. It's kind of like looking back at how I felt when I was 13. There's just some ugly you can't get away from. But it's about time I just forgive myself. It's all been learning....the good and the not so good.

I need to take a harder look at my grades from last semester and the ones I'll be receiving this semester. This is where I should be taking the longer pause. This is where I need to feel comfortable with feeling pride in what I'm doing, and not shame for what I haven't accomplished in the time frame that someone who wasn't me constructed.

I'm doing all of this my way, not to sound too much like old blue eyes...I may be a little behind the respective curve, but thankfully, I don't seem to own a measuring tape.

edit:

Right after posting this, I looked at the last entry I posted, almost a year ago. I've been in New Mexico ALMOST a year. That's terrifying. Time just goes by so damn fast.

I was talking to Krys on the phone earlier this week, and she said something along the lines of "I was just having serious Jenn withdrawals this week. You've been gone long enough time, you can come back home." I miss her so much, and I'm sad that I haven't been able to see the new baby yet. I'm hoping I can get back out there sometime soon. Logically though, that won't happen until summer I'm betting. When we were on the phone, the baby was making lots of noise, chattering at himself. He'd make a loud squeal which would totally scare himself. lol

The first part of spring break I'm going to be finishing up a couple projects I have due the week after. Then later in the week, we're going to be taking a couple days and drive out to the Navajo Res. I have a presentation in Art History that requires actually visiting the site we signed up to present on. But, really I think it's going to be a fun little road trip. I haven't been out to that part of the state since I was a young kid. I'll get some good use out of my camera, too.

It's getting late, and I've got to get to class in the morning. I'm glad I put gas in my car on my way home.
