March 22nd

Well spring break is over, and it seemed that I had just left Daytona when I found myself driving back. Although the break was needed, I was ready to get back in the swing of things back here at Riddle. I left last Friday and drove six hours home to Fort Walton Beach, where I spent the entire break. I think I ended up going to the beach almost every day, and hanging out with my buddies from high school every night. I also was able to spend some valuable time with my family, who I miss more than I thought I would, which was nice.

Before I left for break, all of my professors thought it would be a good idea to flood their students with the second round of tests. Needless to say, I spent the week before break with my nose stuck in my books. I performed about the same as I did on the first round of tests earlier in the semester, so my grades are still pretty high at this point. The space shuttle was also supposed to launch before break, but as usual they found something working improperly during its inspection so it did not go up. But upon arriving back in Daytona, I heard that it went up during the break. Hearing this sort of bummed me out, because I have still not been able to see one launch since I moved here! Oh well, hopefully I can catch it the next time.

Things back in Daytona are just as I left them. I registered for my classes for the summer A term; I am taking AT302 and AT305, which are the second and third courses in the air traffic control series. For the summer B term, I am still hoping to do an internship with the FAA in an ATC facility. Pike is still keeping me very busy, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I enjoy being with these guys and having the support of my pledge brothers is something that means quite a lot to me. My job at the admissions office is still awesome, and I just became certified to give campus tours on my own. So when all you journal readers out there decide to come down and visit the campus, you’ll probably meet me in the admissions visitor center. And if you’re lucky, you might get me as your tour guide. Ha-ha, just kidding.

Anyhow, shoot me an email and let me know if you have any questions. And let me know when you all get your acceptance letters!
