All of a Sudden it's November

(Athletics, Just for Fun, Class of 2018) Permanent link   All Posts
Coburn Photo It seems like just yesterday we were coming back from our summers away in the fleet, but now all of a sudden it’s November. The past couple of months have flown by and we are that much closer to Thanksgiving break and then winter leave. October was definitely one of the most fun months I have had at the Academy so far. First, fall ball started for lacrosse so I got to practice with the team every week and then, at the end of October, we had our annual tournament at Springfield College. It was a lot of fun and I feel like our team has really come a long way since becoming a Division III team just last spring. At the Academy, we get Columbus Day weekend off so my friends and I took a trip to New York City. We stayed in Brooklyn, went to a concert, and walked the streets of New York as typical tourists.


The Academy is also a very exciting place to be around Halloween. Decorations are allowed in rooms and we are even allowed to dress up and have a Halloween dinner and parties in each company. As a class, 2018 went to a haunted house in Connecticut that was supposedly one of the scariest in the state. It was a great time for our class to come together and have some fun. With regard to Halloween, the command actually granted us a short, which meant that we had the night off. A couple of my friends and I went to Six Flags New England for Fright Fest, which was awesome. The weather was perfect and there were hardly any lines for the rides.


As the number of weeks until winter leave start to get shorter, though, the class assignments do start to pile up. While it may be a tough next couple of weeks, I know from last year that they will fly by and we will be sitting around the table at Thanksgiving before we know it.
