Another Beginning

(Just for Fun, The Cadet Experience, Class of 2014) Permanent link   All Posts
 Brianna Townsend It is always tough returning from leave and coming back to school. It is especially difficult when all I have been doing is sleeping for 12 hours a day and spending time with my family and friends. However, I am very much looking forward to completing one more semester here at the Academy and being half way done with my Academy experience. With classes starting, daily trainings, and the physical fitness evaluation, the beginning of the school year can become very hectic, but eventually I will fall into my normal routine.

With such a busy schedule any weekend off of school is a gift to cadets, and many get away from the Academy to places like New York or Boston. This upcoming weekend is a long weekend for us and I plan on going to Boston with some of my friends to celebrate my birthday and my best friend Megan’s birthday. We often do trips like this to release some built up stress, and just have fun. In lieu of some of my best friends leaving this semester we just want to have one last weekend together, which is exactly what we plan to do. Being at the Academy and spending time with my friends has been very helpful for getting through tough times, and I think it has been one of the best outcomes of my time spent here. The friendships that I have built during my Academy time are unbreakable, which is what I love about being here.
