What Lies Ahead

Carani Photo Wow how time flies! I can’t believe it’s already March! This month has so much in store: in a few days I will be leaving for Deland, Florida, then I get back to the Academy and will get to take part in the annual Ethics Forum! I am very excited for this month!


Each year, the crew team takes part in a spring break training trip, and this year we are returning to Deland, Florida to practice twice a day in a warmer climate in order to get prepared for the spring season! I had a blast on spring break last year, and this year promises to be just as fun! It’s a lot of hard work, and it can be grueling and painful, but going through it all and sharing that time with the crew team really brings us all closer together and helps us as we enter into the spring racing season.


When we get back from break, I have the Ethics Forum to look forward to! The Ethics Forum is something that the Academy has been hosting for over twenty years now, and it is a day where leaders from around the country come to the Academy and hold various sessions and discussions about ethical leadership. They always bring in extremely interesting and dynamic speakers and I am particularly excited for the lineup for this year!


Also, later in April, my girlfriend and my parents are planning to visit and attend a crew race, so I have a lot to look forward to and a lot to be thankful for the rest of the semester! Life is good and God is great!


If you are a student in high school reading this, I hope that your semester is going just as well as mine, and if you have any questions about anything at all, please, please, PLEASE to do not hesitate to email me at Thanks!


And whenever you are reading this, if you need some encouragement, here is a little pick-me-up from the most encouraging and motivational piece of literature that I know: straight from the mouth of God!


Matthew 11: 28-30: “Come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
–Jesus Christ
