It's Almost Thanksgiving Break

(Extracurricular Activities and Faith-Based Involvement, Class of 2015) Permanent link   All Posts
 Samuel Krakower Hey Everyone!

As my clocks would go:
Me: THERE ARE NOW 12 DAYS TO GO UNTIL THANKSGIVING LEAVE! THERE ARE NOW-
Random 1/c: Secure it!
Me: AYE AYE SIR!

Thanksgiving Break! Yes! So close to the first real break since my coming here in June, which, when I think about it, was almost five months ago. It’s incredible that I’ve been in the long blue line for that long.

Since I last wrote, a lot has gone down. The play, “Murder Runs in the Family” was a huge success! I received so many congrats and good jobs from upper class, and even Captain O’Connor, our Commandant of Cadets! It was a great experience working with everyone in the cast, and performing the show.

Halloween on the Hill was pretty cool. I got to dress as a Jersey “guido” (repping the home state!), which was a lot of fun. The weekend before, lacrosse went down to Maryland to play a game against Morgan State. Worst weather conditions I’ve ever played in, but we managed to win 16-2, so no complaints!

Aside from that, everything has been pretty routine here. The days usually follow the same pattern: training, classes, sports, sleep, repeat. We finally have all of our uniforms, concluding with out DDB jackets. We even have our running suits, but right now those are just mocking me in my upper left hand drawer, as we can’t wear them yet. At least we got dry cleaning privileges! Ironing is so much harder than it looks. We closed out the drill and formal room and wing season, so everyone is pretty happy about that.

All that’s really left is finals, finishing up CERs, and before you know it, winter leave will be here! I know I’m going back to my high school alma mater to show them the new 4/c Krakower. It should be a great time. But Thanksgiving Break comes before that, so I’m pretty pleased at the remainder of this year.

If you haven’t finished applying to the CGA yet 2016…you better finish up!
