I am working harder and happier than I ever have. I think I'm still a year away from producing something really good, but every day I wake up excited to try, to push toward some eventual good piece. I've been thinking a lot about the pieces that inform who I am as a journalist. I'll never produce anything as good as these, but they are what I'm aiming to make. That is, they tell the story I want to tell in the ways I wish I could.
