Corona!

Due to the worldwide health concerns caused by COVID19, the Corps did not return to the Academy following spring break. After filling out countless accountability spreadsheets and reading an unending trail of emails, I was excited to be able to spend more time at home with my family. But it is very strange not going back to the Academy. As online classes begin, I have to learn how to manage my time all over again. It’s hard to stick to my routine when I can stay in my pajamas all day. But I’m not complaining 😊 Online classes are completely uncharted territory for me, but so far they are going well. They are very self-driven, so I rely on my organizational skills to keep track of all of my assignments.

So far classes are going well. I made a schedule for the week with the due dates for assignments and I’ve been able to get work done every day. I’m still doing a lot of schoolwork but instead of sitting through trainings in the mornings or going to lunch formation, I’m filling that time with hanging out with my sister or walking outside.

In the months that I’ve spent at the Academy, every day has felt so long. In one day, a cadet can get a ton of work done. Applying that same attitude of doing a lot every day, it’s been really fun to swap doing a lot of homework for doing tons of things I want to do. That being said, I’m still very excited to be able to go back and see all of my friends.
