This past weekend could not have come at a more perfect time. Academics have been tough, and life as a cadet stressful, so the weekend off was much needed. I am usually not someone who likes to go places without a general idea of what we will be doing, but this time I did not plan any of the logistics of the weekend, so I was a bit worried of what would come out of it. The weekend brought many stressful moments, walking around Boston trying to find people, driving out of our way to pick up more people only to wait in traffic, when all we wanted to do was get to our final destination and rest. One thing I did learn was that it is ok to not have a plan. As long as you have people who can think quickly on their feet and a fully charged phone, things won’t be so bad. You will only get seriously frustrated and stressed with each other.
We spent time in three different states in three days! We ate too much lobster (if that’s even possible!), danced the night away in Boston, and had some amazing clam chowder (or at least I did). This weekend will most likely be brought up many, many years down the road because of the crazy things we did. Weekends like this are what make being so far from home not so bad.
