On Tuesday, my flight got together to review our knowledge and prepare our uniforms for Mid-Terms. We played the Jeopardy game that another cadet and I put together, which was a lot of fun! Also, we shared shoe shining and uniform tips with the freshman. We all answered our knowledge questions correctly during the Open Ranks Inspection on Wednesday and we did alright on the quiz. Thursday was quite interesting because towards evening it got really cool compared to what the temperature was that day. I was in the library and when I looked outside I thought the sky looked kind of green and I heard someone mention the word “tornado,” so I decided I would head back to my room. The sky looked like tornado weather and then I heard the safety people say, “Take shelter. A tornado warning is in effect.” Everyone was pretty fascinated with the weather and we stood near the windows and doors to watch, (not the brightest thing to do!!) and safety wasn’t too happy about it. All in all, we were stuck on the first floor of my dorm for about thirty minutes. The funny part was people were already planning on what they would do if we didn’t have school on Friday.

Tuesdays and Thursdays I go to math tutoring and that Thursday was no exception. Since I am a regular at tutoring, I usually see the same people in there week after week and that day I started talking to someone new; I enjoy meeting new people and it gives me another reason to go to tutoring. PT on Friday was pretty intense because we did all static (pushups and abs) for about 40 minutes. The next day my arms were sore but I got to go shopping in Orlando, so they didn’t bother me too much! Orlando has a huge outlet mall and some of my girlfriends and I decided we needed to do some serious shopping-Daytona Beach has a mall located across from campus but it’s not that big. We had a good time shopping and hanging out! I also went to my first hockey game that night but I only got to see two minutes of the game because a generator broke and the ice started melting, so they had to stop the game. I’m looking forward to the next one!

Until next time,
