Semesters to Go

(The Cadet Experience, Class of 2014) Permanent link   All Posts
Patron Photo The semester is quickly wrapping up and with little room for idling. Just in this week alone, I have two exams on the same day, and two papers greater than 10 pages. There are also smaller projects here and there that keep me busy. All I can say is that I am counting the days until Thanksgiving. It has become a Patron Family tradition to make the drive to New York to watch the Macy’s Day Parade and this year is no exception.


Once all the festivities are over, I report back to USCGA for the last few days of classes and begin preparing for finals. All I can report is that this semester has been the quickest yet! One minute I was preparing for cadre summer and now I am transitioning to my second semester (meaning I only have three more to go)! During my freshman year, I was talking to my uncle (Class of 1997) about having a year of prep school and one semester under my belt and he replied “great! Only SEVEN more to go!”… I gave him a frustrated look but I understood his point. It was, and still is, going to be a long road until you reach your goal. With that said, I will leave you with a few words my dad told me after the comment my uncle made that same day: Take each day one and a time. Don’t rush anything. And remember to keep the end goal in mind.
