I want to take a moment and share some of the long-term goals I've set for myself. I feel like I'm making a lot of progress in a lot of areas, and I'd like to publicly write down the project goals I have for the next year. You might think it's weird that I'm doing it almost in July, rather than as my "new year's resolutions" in January. However, after having been here in Maryland for a year now, I finally feel like I'm settling in and getting into my groove. It's been a wonderful year, full of struggles and hardships, and the rewards that come from them.
