I cannot believe it is almost midterms of second semester third class year. February was honestly a blur; I am still enjoying my mathematics courses and I am improving my racquetball skills. We had a snow day during “Nemo,” which was wonderful. A few of my friends and I trekked down to the waterfront and watched the sunset and played in the snow. Unfortunately, that weekend we did not get an opportunity to leave on liberty since the weather was snowy and dangerous, but it made for a few days of movie watching and catching up on homework of course.
We found out our 2/c summer assignments, which is unreal since I bean-sprouted (shadowed a cadet for a day) exactly two Februaries ago in 2011. It is amazing to think we are almost halfway through our cadet careers. Only 4.5 semesters to go!
I have been working out a lot on my own to stay in shape. I have specifically been working on cardio because I can let my mind wander, reflect on the positives from the day, and mentally prepare myself for any upcoming academic challenges.
February is my favorite month because it has the birthstone of amethyst, which is one of my favorite colors, and is also my birthstone. Spring break is right around the corner and that means I can finally visit my sister in Tampa!
