Getting Back in the Swing of Things

(Overcoming Challenges, Class of 2015) Permanent link   All Posts
 Alex Min Trying to adjust to any new situation always proves to be a major feat; however, coming back to the Academy was more difficult than I imagined. Thankfully, the first week upon arrival was MAP week, when we spent our days attending trainings and lectures. It takes time to really get acclimated back to the military lifestyle and waking up before six every morning. Another challenge for me was particularly the weather. The first few days I was cold no matter where I went; in lectures, Chase Hall, my room, and even my bed. After enjoying three weeks of 85 degree weather, Connecticut was freezing. The first week was really overwhelming, but my best friends were here with me and they helped to pick me up. No matter how difficult the challenge, especially coming back, having friends helps you through your toughest days. Leave also generates a lot of funny stories, which always keeps everyone entertained and smiling.
