Happy Anniversary!

Hello friends! Just a quick blog post tonight to let you know that I've officially been working for the State Department for one year! And, as of a few weeks ago, I've been at post for six months already!

One year ago today I walked down 23rd Street to the intersection with C Street, slightly jittery, mostly giddy, and excited about the fact that I was about to be sworn in as a federal government employee and an officer in the United States Foreign Service.

It has been quite a humbling, exciting, and incredible experience thus far, and I can only hope for many more years and a great career ahead. Oh, and the "administrative promotion" certainly doesn't hurt, either!

Thanks for coming on the journey with me. As a completely random treat, check out this video that has boggled my mind. Japan is so stinkin cool.

Until next time...peace.
