Corcoran Photo Coming back to the Academy after winter leave gave me a very bittersweet feeling. While I wanted to come back to school to do something more productive with my time, leaving my friends and family was sad. We have been kept very occupied with all of our military obligations since our return, however, because of all of our hard work this week, the Corps of Cadets have been granted a long weekend. Unfortunately, I know people involved in winter sports will all be staying at the Academy due to all of the games and meets tomorrow. Personally, I have an indoor track and field meet at fifth deck Roland tomorrow. I am excited to start my college track career, however also very nervous due to an illness I am trying to overcome right now. Hopefully I do not come in last…

 

I had a wonderful time at home in Pennsylvania over leave. I received plenty of rest, saw old high school friends, and spent a lot of time with my family. I realized how quickly time flies by when my brother proposed to his girlfriend on Christmas Eve. It seems like just yesterday we were little kids fighting over who got to sit in the front seat on the way home. My brother also aided in the addition to the new member of the Corcoran family. No, it was not a person, it was a new kitten! Since our outdoor cat, Mr. Brown, ran away, my brother bought my mom a new kitten named Olive. Any time I laid down on the couch, she would cuddle herself up on my chest.

 

While this semester will definitely be a challenge, I am ready for the challenge this time. I know what to do and what to expect so I am hoping for success this semester.
