Not articulate here.
She told me about an early childhood certificate program, she told me about the advantages of a second year of LEND, she talked about getting a masters of social work if I intend to take a bunch of courses anyway. She talked about taking courses versus looking for experiences. She reflected back to me what I told her in a very thoughtful way.
How I was interested in learning more, how I am looking to do a unique task that there is probably not an existing job, that I want to learn and experience outside of my life experience.
And so I ponder, and do not expect a simple or direct answer. But I ponder structured v. unstructured time for next year (school year), course work v. experience.
