Out of the Frying Pan and Into the Fire

Cardoza Photo Once I came back from winter break, I was prepared to hit the ground running when it came to MAP week and schoolwork. MAP week is comprised of different trainings and military tests that we need to attend and pass before the semester begins. This MAP week, I finally reached my goal of receiving a blue star for the spring semester Physical Fitness Exam! In order to receive a blue star, you need to get at least a 270 on the PFE and I passed with a 272.


After that, the first school week of the semester passed by with no problems at all! I really think that I am going to enjoy my classes this semester and hopefully I can increase my GPA even more than it has been in the past couple of semesters. One of my teachers made it a point to tell us to open our eyes this semester and see how good we have it. We could be unemployed and thousands of dollars in debt if we were attending a different university. I have always appreciated what I have at the Academy. Being surrounded by so many amazing friends and mentors, I am extremely grateful and honored to be here, and I can’t wait for this semester to truly get started in the next few weeks!
