Coming Back After Break

(Choosing the Coast Guard Academy, Class of 2016) Permanent link   All Posts
Hirst Photo While I couldn’t wait for Christmas leave, in the back of my mind I was dreading coming back. Christmas break was wonderful—it was more than three weeks of complete freedom. I was able to spend time with friends and not worry about anything. Many people told me I wouldn’t be able to relate to my friends back home but that was not true at all. Coming back, however, was very difficult. Stepping into Chase Hall was an extremely weird feeling. It was the first time squaring, greeting, and maintaining brace for almost a month. It’s tough being back, but I know the next few months of fourth class year will go by quickly just like the first semester. In the end, this place is definitely worth everything you have to put up with. While some days may not be the best, there is absolutely nowhere else I’d rather be.

 

Good luck to all those applying as you make the biggest decision yet! Feel free to email any questions!
