Where Does the Time Go?

 Jordan Keith Ahoy Sailors!

I’ve got no clue where the time goes, because it seems like it was just yesterday that I was writing my previous blog.

Where has all of this time been going you might ask? For the weekdays it’s always dedicated to school. The first semester of Electrical Engineering is pretty intense. I’m taking three labs and I have homework every night. And I don’t have any free periods during the school day. This semester I am taking: Electrical Engineering I, Introduction to Programming, Differential Equations, Ships and Maritime Systems, Physics I, Navigation Lab, and Golf/Racquetball.

The weekends have been far more exciting though. I’ve done a couple of triathlons (in D.C. and New York) in the past month, as well as a lot of community service activities. Community service has been very rewarding, as well as exposing me to different things “out there”. For instance, last weekend I was helping Amber Alert register children for ID’s; if the children ever go missing the parent can turn the ID card into a local police station and the surrounding communities will be alerted to what’s going on. Some of the other things that I’ve done include helping out at a homeless shelter in Pennsylvania, talking to people at Riverside Park (a piece of land the Academy is interested in acquiring), and taking Eagle up the Thames River for the first time in 30 years. All of it’s been very satisfying, and I’ve been able to visit many more places around the New England/eastern seaboard through all of these activities while helping people out. I’m grateful for this opportunity the Academy has made possible for me, and I’m excited to see what other exciting things lay in store for me on the weekends.

If you want to know more about my weekend adventures or community service in general feel free to shoot me an email at Samuel.J.Keith@uscga.edu.

See you soon,
