Hi all! Spring semester is still plugging away. We are down to the last month or so of classes, and it was back down to the grind last week after a very enjoyable spring break. I can’t think of a better way I could have spent my break! I got to spend time with my two families – my real family and my sailing family. The sailing team spent Saturday through Thursday training in St. Petersburg, Florida. Sailing back in Florida was so nice! It definitely beats wearing dry suits, which still seem like a foreign entity to me. We had four alumni join us for the training trip; they were stationed as close as down the road at sector St. Petersburg and as far away as Seattle. This was a really cool opportunity to sail with alumni who participated in college sailing for four years already, and to get to talk with junior officers in the fleet right now. Everyone does something different in the Coast Guard, so it was nice to get multiple different perspectives on fleet life.
Now, we are back to school, classes, exams, trainings, and the endless list of things to do. I feel like spring semester is so much more rushed than fall. The to-do list never ends, and it’s hard to find time to come up from air. This being said, it should go by fast. Until then it’s just day by day to get through.
As always, you can contact me at Christina.M.Frost@uscga.edu with any questions you may have!
