Well, we are almost done with March, and all of the 4/c are anxiously waiting for the semester to be over. It was hard coming back from spring break, especially when we had three tests that week including a huge test for the military aspect of our lives. Our class didn’t do so well on that test, but we have another one coming up, which we should do better on! I am really happy with how this semester has turned out. The classes are harder and there is more work that needs to be done, but overall, this whole semester has been nothing but enjoyable. With the end of the semester coming up, all the 4/c are excited to be done, and that can also cause a lot of stress and anxiety. It is hard to keep up an enthusiastic atmosphere among the class, but we are slowly starting to see the spirit that we lost after coming back from spring break and falling into basically a “pit of despair.” Spirit missions have been going around, and the sun has started to come out! I know that I, for one, missed the sun desperately! Being from San Diego, there are only a few days throughout the entire year where there will not be any sun, but coming here and experiencing that for weeks made me miss my Vitamin D, and having the sun back on a normal basis has been fantastic!
Water Polo has been going really well as well. Granted, we have not won any games yet, but we continue to work hard and persevere as a team and have fun and that’s all that really matters! We are all also very excited to see what we get for our summer assignments. I basically already know that I am going to be on first phase Eagle and then taking summer school, but I am very excited for my shipmates and can’t wait to see where they get to go this summer! Well, we only have a few more weeks left! And personally, I can’t wait for it to be over and come back next year as a 3/c!
