Tomorrow is the last day of classes for me 3/c year, which is completely unbelievable. Although time has gone by so fast that I still feel like a swab sometimes and I am almost halfway to graduating!
The spring semester was probably the most challenging academically for me, although I’m proud with how classes have worked out. As of this moment, I have completed my first navigation brief, written my first 30-page paper, finished two additional group projects, taken two tests, and finished another 14-page paper, all due, by the way, within four days of each other. I think of my only final (Physics) as a reward for finishing this past week with my sanity intact. To recover I am planning on (eventually) sleeping for approximately two full days when I go home for break.
After a couple of months of our spring season, the women’s soccer team pulled away with two wins (shutouts) in our tournament last weekend! It was nice to see how our hard work in the offseason paid off during both of our games.
Looking ahead to leave, I am excited to focus all of my energy toward mentally and physically preparing for Swab Summer. I feel that it is important to be able to do absolutely every exercise and more with the swabs in order to be a respected leader, and also be able to intrinsically motivate them. My classmates and I have already started preparing specific things for certain situations as well as funny things we can pull off when the time is right.
