It’s always nice to have a break from school, athletics, and the military life, but this past winter break was one of the best breaks I have had. I was able to spend lots of time with my family and friends. I decided not to go on the training trip with the swim team and gained an extra week at home. The weather was not perfect, but it didn’t stop me from being outside and on the water.
I started winter break off at the University of Florida watching my brother commission into the United States Marine Corps. The ceremony was great and I was so proud of him and everything he has accomplished in three and a half years. My whole family was there watching him commission, which was very special and a lot of fun. The rest of winter break consisted of days on the beach, the boat, or paddle boarding with friends and family. I had an awesome time at home catching up with everyone doing everything that I love.
I am refreshed and ready for a new semester to begin. My schedule doesn’t look too bad and I like all of my professors so it should be an interesting and fun four months. I have a diving meet every weekend this month, but I love being with the team so it’s not like I am wasting a weekend. We have a long weekend coming up, but I have a diving meet on Saturday so a couple of my friends and I are going to stay at my aunt’s house on Long Island and we are going to go into New York City. I got to see my aunt over winter break, but I am still really excited to go to her house and hang out for a couple of days. I am also going to a Luke Bryan concert with my girl friends. That should be lots of fun and I am really looking forward to it! It will be a busy month with the new semester starting and lots of fun on the weekend and I am so excited!
I hope everyone had a great winter break with their family and friends. Good luck to the prospective cadets who should be hearing something within these next few months. It’s a great experience and you grow and learn so much, but it goes by WAY TO FAST! Enjoy your senior year and all of the fun activities that come with it.
