Two of my good friends at the Academy, 4/c Lutton and 4/c Slife, came with me over spring break to visit my grandparents in Naples. We had a great time in the sun and at the beach. Spring break was the perfect time to relax and push off academics until returning. Following break, our spring volleyball season started. We have been practicing three days each week and we have a tournament this coming Saturday in Boston.
Academically, school has been going smoothly. Every week has its ups and downs. We are now studying for an oral indoctrination test that determines whether our class is granted official “carry on.” Last week we earned the privileges of listening to music out loud, writing on our whiteboards, and wardroom carry on. Wardroom carry on is a huge privilege because now we can look at our food and talk to other 4/c at our table.
Easter weekend I went home and saw my parents. It was frustrating coming back to the Academy because going home was a tease. I wanted to stay with my parents and sleep in my bed forever, but I knew I had to do my homework and get ready for a long week ahead. I do not look forward to the upcoming academic and military challenges but I know that 4/c year is almost over and hopefully we hear where our summer assignments are this week.
