Spring for the finish line

Welcome to 3rd winter.

It’s hard to imagine that Spring is coming, but it is coming. In the meantime, hang tight, power through, and all those other cliches that make you want to roll your eyes and throw a snowball at someone.

In the meantime, here’s some AMAZING opportunities that will give you hope where hope is lost.
