I am in absolute shock that I only have one semester left at the Academy. I have vivid memories of my first day at the Academy when I reported in. These past few years have gone by so quickly and there are so many good memories, but there are many more memories still to make. As a second semester first class at the Coast Guard Academy there are numerous events to look forward to. In just a few short weeks I will find out my first unit and where I will be stationed for the next two years. That is only the beginning of the excitement because not long after that I will be on spring break, starting my last season of lacrosse at the Academy and attending Castle Dance in a beautiful Newport mansion.
As first class we also have Dining-In to look forward which is an event that every class has done and is a tradition at the Academy. Dining-In is a dinner that all first class attends along with the members of our command and our instructors to reminisce about everything that has happened over the last three and a half years. I am excited to look back at all of the good times that I have shared with my classmates and even some of the bad times to see how much we have all grown and improved since then. I am looking forward to the future, but I can’t forget to enjoy the moment that I am in right now.
