h – healing
When I was discussing the possibility of grad school with my counselor, she informed me it would be like a very expensive counseling session.
She wasn’t lying.
I had also heard that this kind of program is transformative; that I would not end the same person I was when I started.
Also not wrong.
The experience and all its layers have been healing. With every class, theory, self-reflection, project, and exposure to others I at least learned something about myself, if not also my grief.
