Spring Break!

(Just for Fun, Class of 2012) Permanent link   All Posts
 Alexander Lloyd Midterms and spring break have come and gone. Having had such a good break, it is hard to get back into the swing of things at school; however, there are only six weeks until the start of finals. Besides spending some time at home, I got to experience some of the best California has to offer. The first part of my spring leave was spent snowboarding in Lake Tahoe. There was a lot of snow and little crowds; and as a pleasant bonus, several resorts in the area offer free lift tickets to those in the military. It is always nice to be reminded of all the little “perks” of attending a service academy. The second half of my spring break was spent sailing with the Academy’s Offshore Sailing team in the Los Angeles Harbor Cup. Although we finished the regatta sixth of nine colleges, it was awesome to be sailing again after three months off, not to mention the seventy degree weather and the cheering from my family and friends who watched the race from our personal boat.

Several projects and tests stand between me and the summer, but the time will without a doubt pass by fast. The Class of 2012’s Ring Dance is less than a month away, which is where we will receive our class rings. It is exciting to think that in less than two months, I will be out of school and working on a patrol boat in Southern California for my 1/c summer.
