This is the time of the year at the Academy known as the “dark ages,” but for me, everything looks bright and exciting! I am loving my schedule and my classes, and I’m back into the swing of things here: life is good! The first round of tests went really well and we have midterms coming up soon but I am feeling confident about those as well! That reminds me a verse in the Bible.
Ecclesiastes 3:22a “There is nothing better than that a man should rejoice in his work, for that is his lot.”
Hmm, how fitting! Good thing I am rejoicing in my work, I’m loving school right now! :)
President’s weekend (Feb. 15th-18th) was a lot of fun, as I went with the crew team to Boston to compete in the C.R.A.S.B.’s Rowing Indoor Championships! It takes place at Boston University in their hockey stadium, and the top rowers and athletes from around the country of all ages come to compete. It was a great venue for this experience. It is arguably one of the hardest competitions to take part in, because as if 2Ks aren’t hard enough to compete in (ask any rower…they’re pretty rough), you have to deal with the stress and pressure of competing on such a big stage, but it was a lot of fun! The guys on the crew team are awesome and the coaching staff is outstanding; it’s going to be a great spring season! I can’t wait!
Unfortunately I don’t have much else to say…this time of the year is pretty low key, but as usual email with any questions you may have about the Academy.
Here is another verse to leave you with; one of my favorites!
Nahum 1:7: “The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in Him.”
