Bye Forever, 2014

In 2014, I accomplished a lot of goals. It was a good year for me, academically and professionally. I got my Masters Degree, moved into a new apartment, was given more respect and responsibility at work and managed to land a spot in an amazing apprenticeship program that will get me ahead in my field. 2014 was
