Happy Thanksgiving

Happy, happy, happy Thanksgiving, TGFErs! I have so much to be thankful for this year, it’s almost hard to comprehend. My last few posts have focused mostly on what struggles I’ve been dealing with, as I fight to find a job in this difficult market and question my journey, so I’m thankful this holiday has arrived just in time for me to think of all I have to be thankful for instead.
