Switching to Vim

At the beginning of last summer, for reasons that I can no longer recall, I set a goal for myself to learn Vim over that summer. Now that summer is over and almost here again, I wanted to reflect on that process and whether I achieved my goal. By no means have I mastered Vim or am a Vim expert, but I feel reasonably proficient. I use Vim itself on the command line and in GUI form, as well as Vim bindings/plugins in all my IDEs. It has gotten so strongly ingrained into my muscle memory that I now find myself hitting ESC to exit insert mode in text boxes in my web browser and typing Vim commands into word processors.
