In what areas do you plan on improving? (:
all. I have specific areas but I don't feel comfortable discussing on the internet with unreliable members. However I'll directly cite chess. I wanna move from 1800 --> 1900 elo and it's very doable

To directly answer your question, perhaps 2 moons.
However, elo does not always reflect skill. If I play with great focus like a prude, and I'm purely concerned with winning games, then I may be able to achieve this in less than 48 hours. However, I seek to play comfortably, and naturally acclimate myself to the 1900 level where I am consistently playing with 1900 skill. So that growth will require studying and an organization of thought process

getting better at chess is an awesome summer plan as much as mayonnaise is an instrument.

USA is a weak chess nation. Many titled American players are immigrants
