I thought after fourth-class year my life at the Academy would get a lot easier. And it sort of has if you look at all the fourth-class obligations that I no longer have to do, like taking out trash, squaring, and doing clocks. But even though it’s gotten easier, my life here hasn’t gotten less busy by any means. Between crew, clubs, military obligations, and school, I’m constantly swamped with one thing or another. On the plus side, there’s never a dull moment and because of all the activities I’m involved with there is always something to do on weekends.
By this, I mean homework.
Of course, there’s also football games—we had our annual game at MMA last weekend. The high point of the football game was probably watching the fourth class from both schools charge onto the football field while the actual game was going on. Definitely not something you see at other schools!
And there is actually more than homework to do at the Academy. But a few weeks ago, New London hosted an indie music festival that a few of my friends and I went to. The act that we saw was actually surprisingly good, and some of my friends were exposed to a new kind of music. This upcoming weekend is Parent’s Weekend, which means that there will be a football game to go to with my parents, and also means that my parents will be able to drive me to places other than New London so I’ll be able to see a little more than usual.
Academically, this semester is shaping up to be a challenging one, especially since I’m overloading on courses. But between crew and clubs, I’m able to rewind a little bit every day.
