As I sit at my desk and think about only the last two weeks, it’s safe to say a lot has gone down. The last time I wrote, I was in Georgia for the weekend. Well, the weekend after that, I went with eight other cadets to the icy land of Montreal to participate in a Model United Nations Conference at McGill University. I had done Model UN in high school, but had yet to at CGA, and this was my first conference. It was truly an excellent four days in moose country, as my committee battled its way through saving the Republic of the Congo from the Belgian troops providing the necessary humanitarian aid, while recreating a government that would solidify the newly independent nation. Long story short, the social events were great, my committee was fantastic, and I met many new people from all over the country! It was really an excellent experience.
This was actually the first weekend since I’ve been back this second semester that I actually stayed in New London. It’s great to travel a lot, but sometimes you just have to stay in! I caught up on homework, slept, and played some lacrosse, which, by the way, is now in full swing! We’re preseason ranked Number 13 and eyeing the National Tournament in Greenville, South Carolina this year. It’s going to be quite the run. We look very solid with our returning players as well as our freshman class.
We also put in for our cadre assignments, and I got my first pick, Waterfront! Essentially, I’ll be Chase Hall cadre at night, but during the day I’ll be down on Jacob’s Rock teaching the swabs (yes, 2017, that’s you!) how to sail the FJs and 420s. I’m very excited, as this summer is going to be an amazing learning experience for all of 2015 and me.
So as you can plainly see, the Dark Ages truly haven’t been too bad. Classes are going well, and this is what I have going on. If any 2017 kids have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email me at Samuel.Krakower@uscga.edu, as I’m not a cadre just yet! We want you guys to be as prepared as possible! Now to start that Comparative Politics paper…
