The Dark Ages…

(The Cadet Experience, Class of 2012) Permanent link   All Posts
 Alexander Lloyd They often call winter here at the Academy the “Dark Ages” because of the short days, cold weather, and the idea that time seems to slow down. It would be understatement to say that we have had a stormy winter; but, without a doubt time has seemed to fly by. In fact, we have yet to have a full week of classes since our return from winter leave because of four snow days from several storms. Of course, it is frustrating for teachers and their lesson plans, but a snow day is definitely a nice break during the week. Growing up in California and never experiencing a snow day until college, I can now say that I experienced more snow days in last month alone than in my entire life put together.

With spring break and midterms less than a month away, summer and 1/c year is not too far over the horizon. In less than a month, my class will be receiving the opportunity to withdraw car loans at incredibly low interest rates. It will be awesome to finally have a car out here. I also found out that I have been accepted for an internship in California for part of the summer, and I will soon find out what Coast Guard cutter I will spend the rest of my summer on. I can’t wait!
