I love most about living in Maryland. I would say just the diversity that Maryland has to offer. And when I say that, I mean, I don't know a single other state that is quite as diverse as Maryland is. We have the city, Baltimore city downtown, we have the country with just miles and miles of empty, beautiful scenery that is so much fun to just get away to and relax from work, and, you know, we need that as healthcare professionals especially now. We have the mountains out West, we have the beach East and we have Ocean City, you gotta experience Ocean City once in your life. But, I don't know, Maryland is just something special, and I feel like we have a saying that, you know, people from Maryland love Maryland, and it's so true. We love our Maryland flag, we love our crabs, and there's just a sense of community in Baltimore, especially that I love so much.
