Another semester has flown by at the Coast Guard Academy, which seems to be a common occurrence here. I feel like my last two years here have gone by so quickly, which is sort of a bittersweet feeling. In some ways it is good because we are all so much closer to becoming commissioned officers in the Coast Guard, but at the same time it is gloomy because it means some of the best times of are lives are going to become the past. That is why I plan on making the most of the next year and a half that I have at the Academy.
As for right now though I am at home on leave spending time with my family. The Coast Guard prides itself on how family-oriented they are and it truly shows when we are given almost four weeks to spend with our families and friends from home. I plan on relaxing for the majority of this break and catching up on some much needed sleep. I look forward to returning to the Academy for another semester but as for now I am going to enjoy my time at home relaxing with my family.
