    Only Gets Better Choosing the Coast Guard Academy Overcoming Challenges Class of 2016 Permanent link All Posts I m lucky enough to live only 3 5 hours away in New Jersey A train ride is so worth it when we get a long weekend and you need some down time at home All of fall semester before going on a long I would lose focus that last block of classes and think only of the short train ride away that separated me from a weekend at home Seeing my family sleeping in my own bed and having home cooked meals was just enough to leave me doodling in calculus and writing packing lists in my head while bussing to class I suggest neither of the two FYI The train rides home seem to take forever but I am always so happy to be on my way to Jersey My parents would pick me up and I would be nothing but smiles As Sunday morning came which it always did too fast it would be time to board the train and head back to New London This was never an easy task it was always filled with tears and long hugs never wanting to say goodbye I don t want to go back always seemed to be my famous last words Boy have I sure changed from last semester Just this past weekend MLK weekend I spent the first long of the spring semester at home I had the same emotions on the train ride down who isn t excited to go home But instead of being tearful and upset getting ready to go back I only found myself excited to get back home The Academy has become my new home Whoa did I just write those words yeah I guess
