Family and Friends

(Extracurricular Activities and Faith-Based Involvement, Class of 2012) Permanent link   All Posts
Katie Priesing Hello! This is my first journal entry, so I figure I should let you know a few things about me: I am the youngest of five daughters and I wouldn’t trade my sisters for anything. My dad is a retired Marine and my mom is a nurse, they’re the glue that holds me together. Luckily I never had to move when I was growing up, so I lived in the great state of North Carolina my whole life until I reported to the Academy in June 2008. Enough about all that…into this past week!

This past weekend I went with the Catholic Choir to sing at a church in Reading, Massachusetts. We stayed overnight with a family from the church, and I am so surprised at how willing several families were to let myself and other cadets stay with them! It was a fun trip, and from what everyone says we sounded really good. It’s been a relatively light week as far as classes go…no tests. My birthday was on Monday, and a few friends made it so special! I came back to my room after working on some physics to find it decorated and extra colorful. I got to leave the decorations up all day, so every time I walked in my room I was reminded of how awesome friends are! That’s about all that’s going on for now…I’m looking forward to heading to the weather station with my Meteorology Lab next week. Right after that I’m heading out for Thanksgiving leave!!!
