Leaving the Academy will be hard.
I’ll post more about this later, but I have to keep reminding myself through the process the POINT of writing out these applications. (Otherwise I get frustrated and simply stop working, and that’s no good.)
But what it does is eventually lead me to imagine leaving the Academy, my home away from home, and… that is difficult to imagine.
How do you leave home? How do you leave your friends? How do you leave a whole world that you’re a part of? Leaving the Academy will mean leaving part of myself behind with it. I will have to tear part of myself out and leave it here, because part of me is grown off the people and places around me at this magnificent place…
It’s getting late. I’m going to sleep.
