I got a nice letter in the mail today, from the Office of the President, Eastern Kentucky University (I'd hoped it was a check, but this is nice, too...)

Dear Miss Warford, (how long has it been since I was called that?)

Congratulations on earning a perfect grade point average for the Fall 2004 Semester. To honor the extraordinary achievement, your name has been added to the President's List, established by the Board of Regents in recognition of academic excellence.

Only a very few students excel to the point of perfection during a semester's work. Congratulations on this superb accomplishment and best wishes for continued academic success with the remainder of your studies. We are very proud of you.

That's pretty cool, considering the thoughts that were going through my head on the way home from work today. I think I was having a wee bit of performance anxiety, for lack of a better word. It's sad that I've been so used to having had my achievements belittled when I was a kid, that apparently I've taken over doing it to myself. The thought that went through my head this afternoon was, what if I've shot my wad? What if I did the best that I'll ever do in school this past semester and it's only downhill from here? Fortunately, I'm at a place in my life where I recognized the destructive thought pattern almost immediately and nipped it in the bud. Then I get home and this letter is waiting for me. It was kinda like a "God moment".
