Spring is Finally Here!

(Choosing the Coast Guard Academy, Class of 2015) Permanent link
Cardoza Photo Even though not many San Diegans are eager to admit it, I actually enjoy having four seasons! However, with that being said, after this cold and long winter, I can’t wait to get some sunshine on my face! Along with spring comes the end of my 2/c year and the beginning of my 1/c summer! About a week ago, we were given our assignments for the summer and I am beyond ecstatic to get out onto a ship and experience life afloat. I originally put in for a cutter out of Alaska, but was definitely not complaining when I received one out of Hawaii instead! After hearing about what our cutter is going to be doing for the upcoming summer, I am very excited to get this season started. Regardless of my excitement, I still have a few more weeks to go, but there are also many upcoming events that I cannot wait for. Ring Dance is coming in a couple of weeks and my classmates and I are eager to get together to dip our rings into the water basin and have one last get together as a class before we have finals and head out.

 

Spring break was a couple weeks ago but I am still not over how exciting that week was! A few of my Coastie friends and I went to Arizona to go backpacking for a few days before we headed back to the Academy. I had to come back early from my spring break in order to attend a water polo tournament in Vermont. Every day I am still reminded of how lucky I am to attend this institution and be able to experience all of these amazing opportunities and be around people that are so incredible. I definitely do not take it for granted!
