Wow, it’s been a busy week.
On top of writing my first few posts for the cadet blog, I had four tests this week. Luckily, I found the time to study for them and did alright on all of them. That’s one of the cool things about this place, it teaches you time management skills pretty well, whether you want to learn the lesson or not.
Well, now that this week is over, I can start thinking about the next week. This month is the Windjammer’s trip to the “Big E,” New England’s fair. We will be representing the Academy by playing pieces of our show and leading the parade. Of course, we’ll have some down time afterwards to enjoy the event because all work and no play makes me tired. I went to this event last year and had a blast. Everyone there was very appreciative of our country’s servicemen and women and made sure we were all having a good time. It was a good motivator and reminder to keep reaching to become an officer. I can’t wait to go again.
Next week isn’t looking too bad. I have a few more tests again, but none are going to be that daunting. I know when I have time to study, what needs to be done and, of course, my shipmates to help me out if I need it.
I’ll talk to you all again next month. Go Bears!
