Coming Back

(The Cadet Experience, Class of 2015) Permanent link   All Posts
 Spencer Zwenger We’ve just started the first week of classes back from winter leave and there have been a lot of emotions flowing. Initially I was pretty upset to be going back, solely because after acting like a real person (and not a fourth class) for two weeks it is extremely difficult to get back into that mindset. However, one of the big things that made it a lot easier was seeing my friends. When all of us started arriving it was like seeing all of my best friends from back home after not seeing them for six months. The only difference was that we were only gone two weeks and we acted like we hadn’t seen each other in a long time. That kind of gives you an idea of how close my classmates and I have become in the very short time we have been here. Nevertheless, after initially being quite disappointed to be back, I’m excited to start this semester and then get on with third class summer.

Another something to touch on is long distance relationships. Quite a few of my friends have had these since they’ve been here, and I was always the one that said it would be way to hard and is kind of pointless. However, over the break I got myself into one of these long distance relationships that I looked down upon for so long. So far it has been working out pretty well for me as well as the other people that I know that keep them. If you’re hesitant, all I can say is give it a try and if it works out good, if not, nothing lost, nothing gained. As always if you have any questions send me an email at
