The Days Go By Slowly but the Weeks Fly

(Academics, Class of 2012) Permanent link   All Posts
 Kathryn Peek Hallelujah! Just finished my last military obligation! Now it’s just the long slow wait (it’s really only a few hours, but it seems like forever when you’re this excited) until I take a bus to the airport and fly out of here for Thanksgiving. Chase Hall is alive with excitement at the moment–there are people singing in the p-ways, there is the slamming of drawers as cadets pack at full speed, and there is plenty of indecipherable hootin’ and hollerin’ as cadets rush to meet their transportation. Thanksgiving leave is bittersweet. It’s great to get out and decompress from the busy Academy days. It also means that there are only three weeks until Christmas leave. However, those three weeks consist of epic cramage as there is a lot to do in a short amount of time. There is less than two weeks before finals. Everyone is going to be filled to the brim with work as we all take our last minute tests and finish our last minute papers and projects before delving head first into finals. As busy as everything is, the morale skyrockets (as there is a very bright light at the end of this tunnel), and it will all be over in a blink of an eye. The days go by slowly but the weeks fly–that’s how time has passed at the Academy, ever since R-Day.
