New Media Consortium

(See here to hear pronunciation of the 3rd title word. It's cool, everyone's doing it.)

I recently became aware that my grad school has been the recipient of an NMC, which is really cool and you can learn more here. I keep referring back to it in my mind and the pride I feel is deep. I am more than ever at peace with my decision to pursue graduate school. Having just passed my 3yr graduation from undergrad this month, it feels good to be working on what I am. I need to be here. I want to be here. I am evolving. Yesssss.

It is only ¼ of a way through and while I have mostly positive feelings, I have had apprehension. There has also been anxiety, stress, longing for days when I did not have homework every.single.day. But aside from what I can assume is “normal,” I am eager to start my assignments each week, happy to review the various resources available, and I’m thriving for the challenge each publication I craft brings.

Hearing of this award, the NMC, I am provided with more contentment in my choice to take on a graduate program. My inspiration level is on the rise. Goals are back on my radar and quite literally I am working on the next chapter in my story. If nothing else is achieved from writing this down, this can serve as a point of reference to come back on the days I might be on the opposite end of this spectrum. But for this moment, I’m going to ride the wave of happy and do nothing but appreciate my choice.

Wowza,
Meggie
