This year is best explained as a year of personal growth. I went into this year with very specific goals in mind, but as things are sometimes, life gets in the way.
I'd rather not go into specifics, just know that it was a hell of a year. And on this day, in the end, I am stronger for it. I made sure I kept up with the infosec goings-on and I am definitely looking forward to making up for lost time in 2017.
