Another week of second semester is complete. Since I’ve gotten back from winter leave, it has been pretty hectic. This semester requires a lot of work. With all of my schoolwork and diving I am still managing to get out of the Academy and have fun with my friends. Time management is the key to success. Last weekend was Martin Luther King weekend and the Corps of Cadets was granted a long, which is a short break from Friday until the next Monday. I had a diving meet on Saturday so I wasn’t able to leave until Saturday night, but a group of my friends and I went to Cape Cod. We did a lot up on the Cape and made some great memories. My favorite part of the weekend was doing a polar plunge with four of my friends. The water was freezing, but the experience and sunset made it worth it. Coming back after a fun long weekend is always hard, but the week didn’t go by too slowly and the weekend was here again.
This past weekend I had a diving meet at Clark University and the team won! We all swam and dove really well and I’m so proud of the team. I went skiing with three of my friends on Sunday. There is a mountain a couple hours away from the Academy that has free lift tickets for military so we went there and skied the whole day. I’m ready for another long week of academics, but I’m also already looking forward to next weekend. Taking school one day at a time is key to a successful semester.
