A Winter Wonderland 2016

Glick Photo The Dark Ages, as they are commonly called, are upon us. Despite the limited daylight, I’ve been finding things to keep myself entertained during the cold months here at the CGA. This Friday night, Hotel Company, which is charged with Regimental Morale, has hired professional comedians to give stand-up routines in Leamy Hall. The comedians were previously featured on The Tonight Show and America’s Got Talent. Hockey games, basketball games, and morale events are myriad and there to give cadets something to do during down time. This coming week, the Corps of Cadets is heading to a downtown New London theater to watch a private pre-screening of the new major motion picture, The Finest Hours. This should be great—a chance to see the first movie about the Coast Guard since The Guardian, of which has produced many Aston Kutcher jokes and stereotypes about the Coast Guard. Maybe when I tell people that I’m in the Coast Guard they will ask me if I’ve seen The Finest Hours rather than The Guardian


In an effort to keep myself busy, I’ve been working out in Billard Hall’s renovated cardio gym. The newly renovated gym has a deluxe TRX layout, which reminds me of a grown-up jungle gym. I also recently signed up for a half marathon in March in West Haven, Connecticut! I’ve been running in Billard just about every day to prepare for the race.
