Another month has quickly passed, and we are only two weeks away from spring break! This past month was very busy with diving and school, but I got through it. We had tons of exams and quizzes the past couple of weeks, but you study one at a time and it ends up being okay. This past weekend the corps was granted a long for President’s day and we were allowed to leave on Friday after school and didn’t have to be back until Monday evening. I had NEWMACS, which is the swimming and diving championship at MIT in Boston. The team left on Thursday afternoon and we didn’t get back until Sunday night late. The competition went really well and the team did great. There were a lot of school records set and NCAA cuts made. They were very long days spent at the pool, but all of the work we have put in this season showed. We have a great group on the team and I had so much fun cheering for everyone. I was able to see "Safe Haven" this weekend with my diving coach and teammates. We all read the book over training trip and decided that we would go see it when it came out in theaters. It was such a good movie, but different from the book.
With spring break only two weeks away, the morale in the corps is high and everyone is excited to have a break. A lot of people are going out of the country with others from school, but I am going home for the week. It will be nice to see my friends and hang out at the beach and on the boat.
The 4/c are starting to take their boards this week and my 4/c has his this evening. He studied so hard and put in so much effort that I know he will be able to successfully pass the test. It is a very nerve wracking experience and it gets scary when you are in a room being asked any question out of a study packet of 48 pages, but with hard work, the questions will seem easy.
Keep working hard and having fun! As always, send any questions my way Sara.E.Cantrell@uscga.edu.
