Back to School

(The Cadet Experience, Class of 2014) Permanent link   All Posts
 Megan Rudy Although my three weeks of leave went by way too fast, I was very excited to get back to school and see all my friends. It was weird being home and seeing all my friends from high school. It was hard to talk to some of them because they just couldn’t understand what I’ve been through this year or weren’t interested. One of my best friends goes to the Naval Academy and I got to see him for one day and it was so much fun to exchange stories. Now I’m thinking about going on exchange there for a semester. They have way different rules than us; some better and some worse. I spent the majority of my break sleeping and visiting relatives and eating frozen yogurt in Boulder.

Finally, it was time to return to school and getting through CAP week was a struggle, getting used to wearing trops all the time and not being able to nap during the day. I was exhausted by the end of the week and wanted my summer back. Now I’ve gotten through the first week of school and it’s taking a while to get used to it they say you are supposed to have more free time 3/c year but so far that’s not the case. I just don’t have to clean anymore but I’m still taking 20 credits, which is going to be difficult. But I’m excited for our first Labor Day long this weekend since I’m going to Long Island with my roommate.
