In honor of that Dr. Seuss book, “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” I have decided to write briefly about where I will go this summer and next fall.
I have an awesome 1/c summer planned. I am going to work in Washington, D.C. for five weeks as an intern with Coast Guard Intel. D.C. is an awesome city and I’m looking forward to working hard, then spending all my free time exploring the city’s many museums and parks. I plan to visit the Air and Space Museum, see the Constitution, and visit the pandas in the zoo. (I know, I know: I’m a nerd.) After my internship, I report to CGC Juniper in Newport, Rhode Island for my second phase. We are going to be working aids to navigation (buoys) in the New England area, which will be a great opportunity to learn more about a potential option for my first billet. I can’t wait to get to Juniper!
My fall semester will be full of other opportunities. CAPT McCauley, the Commandant of Cadets, announced the Regimental Make for the fall 2014 semester today at lunch. I am going to be the Regimental Planning Officer! It’ll be a lot of work on logistics, but I will have loads of fun.
To close with a quote from the same book I used as my inspiration in the beginning:
“Your mountain is waiting.
So…get on your way!”
