aspirations of one day working in the industry.

I have fought the good fight. I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, now there is in store
for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will
award to me on that day, and not only to me, but also to all who have longed
for his appearing.
