Under a month to go until summer assignments! There is one last round of exams, a few more track meets, and projects that have to be done. It seems as if summer is within my grasp and yet there is so much to do until I can leave. After what seemed like an eternity, boards came and went, everyone passed, and we have wardroom carry-on. It’s weird that we have been braced up in the wardroom for nine months but after three weeks of wardroom carry-on I can’t imagine ever going back. The privilege of being a normal human being is slowly returning.
On the subject of humanity, winter seems to have abated at last. For the first time in months I can feel the sun again and we can (occasionally) wear uniforms without windbreakers or parkas. The weather is even nice enough to sit out on the infield during track meets. As of now the countdown is in full swing, closer to Eagle, and closer to no longer being a 4/c!
