Thoughts on a Quiet Evening

(Academics, Athletics, Just for Fun, Class of 2015) Permanent link   All Posts
Driscoll Photo Dear Readers,
Please enjoy this stream of consciousness piece about my night

 

AT PRACTICE:
“Coach, if there is no food, we can’t stay down here and row. The wardroom closes at 1900, whether we’ve eaten or not.”
“Coach, we can’t stay. I’m going into the dock.”
“I’m hungry.”
“I’m really cold and wet.”

 

AT DINNER:
“Jake, stop. That crosses the line.”
“I should go get some cereal.”
“That was good. I should go get some chocolate soy milk.”
“I really hope they have whipped cream that I can put into my soy milk.”
“They do!”
“Oops…this is awkward. As if the crew team wasn’t a cult already, and now we are breaking stuff in the wardroom. Time to go.”

 

BACK IN MY ROOM:
“What homework do I have?”
“I should check Facebook first.”
“Wow, that’s cool.”
“Whoa—it’s 2000 already?! I should really get my homework started.”
“Okay, I’m going to study. Wait, what am I supposed to study again? I should go ask someone.”
[This leads to me having a twenty-minute conversation in someone else’s room.]
“Okay, I’m bored with studying. I wonder how the last NCIS episode went.”  

 

“WHAT!!!! WE HAVE A CORPS-WIDE TOMORROW!!!!”

“I wish the Internet would move faster…”
“Oh, look, Leann sent an email. I think I’ll write a blog entry in my spare time.”

“I’m hungry.”

Love,
A Typical Cadet
