After a wonderful week of leave, it is time to come back to the daily grind that of Academy life. Just one day after arriving back from home, I had a Chemistry test and an English presentation. It was like being pushed into a freezing cold pool with your eyes shut – unexpected and not particularly fun. That’s not to say that I’m unhappy to be back. I actually missed a lot of my friends despite only being gone for one week. Of course, I didn’t really miss waking up early and doing all the silly 4/c things, but the Class of 2016 is so close to carry on! That’s one of the things that keeps me going through all of the tedious things I have to do like clocks, taking out trash, squaring, and everything else. We are all so close to normal living!
Aside from that, there are plenty of other things we have to look forward to for inspiration. For one, our 4/c Formal is this Saturday (23MAR). At this formal our class crest is shown to us and we get to have a fun time with just the wonderful class of 2016. Also, pretty soon we should all be getting our summer assignments, which is another “light at the end of the tunnel” for us 4/c. And me personally, I have a few Glee Club trips to look forward to. The remaining time left in this semester is really going to fly by and before I know it, I will be out in the fleet for the summer. I am so ready to get out there and actually experience the Coast Guard in the role of a junior enlisted.
As always, if any of you have any questions just send me an email and I will help you out as best as I can! Good luck to all those applying to AIM or are just accepting their appointments to the Class of 2017.
