People in the GSM might have different opinions about different
things in general. But the only thing that everybody agrees to is

close of quarter two and it feels like we have only been here for
Omaha! Omaha! The last week of January, 20 lucky UC Davis

that is what I had to learn. Balance.

hesitate to take on leadership roles.
