It feels like we just got back, yet I’ve already been here for more than a month. Of course it’s busy as usual with soccer and school, however there is a lot less stress this year since I don’t have to worry about 4/c duties. It’s nice to be able to help my own 4/c and those on the soccer team and in my company since I was in their position a few months ago.
One of the highlights of school for me this year was attending the MMA (Kings Point) games here at the Academy. Because of my soccer schedule last year, I had to miss my school’s football, men’s soccer, and volleyball team play our rivals from the Merchant Marine Academy. The games are all really competitive, and it was awesome to cheer on each team as well as compete with the cheering section from KP. One 4/c in my company actually climbed onto the KP boat from the water, which they moor next to our dock every year, and stole their flag! It got pretty intense after that! We ended up winning the volleyball and soccer games (with the men’s soccer team winning for the first time in more than ten years), and the football game was close until the final whistle.
The weather is just now starting to turn into Fall weather, and so far it’s been great seeing my friends and hearing about their summers. School is busy, but so far it’s been good to be back.
