A Short Break

(The Cadet Experience, Class of 2014) Permanent link   All Posts
 Brianna Townsend I just arrived back at the Academy after being on leave for the first time. I spent Thanksgiving break (just five short days) with my family and my roommate. I enjoyed every single part of break but now that I am back at the Academy and with finals approaching, I am reminded to stay focused in order to prepare myself for the end of the semester. There are only a few short weeks until Christmas break and I am very excited for that time to come.

These upcoming weeks will be filled with tests, speeches, and quizzes but after that, the corps and I will receive a well-deserved break. I am looking forward to spending time at home with my family, but I think over Christmas break I will realize how much I miss the new family I have accumulated here at the Academy. I have made so many great friends, and it has made me realize how important the Academy is to me. The people that I am friends with now are the people that will be working with me in four short years as other officers. Realizing this teaches you to treat others with respect because they could be responsible for your life one day.

I hope you enjoy the holidays, and if you have any other questions feel free to contact me, I love answering your questions. Brianna.E.Townsend@uscga.edu
