What an amazing semester; it’s hard to believe that it is drawing toward a close so quickly. The rapidly changing weather of New London is keeping us vigilant as we near finals, changing from jackets to shield the snow in the morning, to no jackets as the suns bakes us during afternoon sports. I am so proud of my class and all of my friends for pushing through these trying times and keeping their goal in mind. That’s what we have to do here. If a class gets too hard, or we’re just tired of working we all need to just stop, take a deep breath and reevaluate what we are doing. In the words of the Chaplain, “It’s supposed to be stressful, but it’s not impossible.”
Only one week until I get to see my family and it will be nice to have a break from school. I will miss my friends a lot thought. Last weekend one of my good friends stayed with me in a store at the mall for three hours to make sure I could get my phone fixed. You know you have a true friend if they stay with you for hours in a humid cell phone store.
I look forward to finishing this year out strong and proving to the rest of my family that I can pass calculus as well as the rest of these classes. Have a fantastic winter break and good luck with those applications, Class of 2018!
