New Experiences

(Extracurricular Activities and Faith-Based Involvement, Class of 2014) Permanent link   All Posts
 Brianna Townsend This past weekend I attended the Windjammers competition at the United States Naval Academy as part of the color guard. I am always willing to try new things but color guard was a lot different from the other activities that I participate in. The reason for the difference was that it did not come very easily to me but luckily we had over a month to learn choreography and learned how to do the different moves with our flags. I have never been so nervous to perform before; mostly because it was in one of the biggest stadiums that I have ever been in. Despite the nervousness of my team and me, we went on the field and did great. Many of the judges said that our performance was the best they had seen in over ten years from the Windjammers. I learned a lot about myself from that performance in that I can do anything I want to do if I work my hardest and overcome obstacles.

This semester is flying by and it is almost midterms, which makes me nervous because I am that much closer to graduating. Even though it is a few years away, it will come quicker than expected. This past weekend I also attended the Navy/Air Force football game and met a past graduate from the Academy who told me to cherish every moment that I spend here because it will go by fast and that I will miss all of the moments that I enjoy now. That is why for the rest of this semester I intend to enjoy my time here and cherish every moment that I have left at the Academy.
