The internet is acting up here at school so I haven't been able to post. Then again, not much has really been going on either. I have to say, I've been drinking more than I should...not in the "I'm becoming an alcoholic" sense, but in the "I'm going to have a beer gut earlier than I probably should" sense...but, pot bellys can be hot...right?
Anyway, school is going ok. In general, I go to my EV class, which is interesting if not challenging, go back to my room for an hour and do the reading for my next two classes--law and International Security Seminar. Law is kind of below my level so far, but ISS is above my head. I do the readings but don't have much to contribute in class because, unlike the other cadets, I've not spent time in Croatia or Africa. Instead, I normally wait until someone says something smart and then try to be the first one to disagree...it gives me the appearance of knowing what I'm talking about I think (although, I could be wrong and MAJ Wrona could go back to his office everynight to laugh at me).
My job isn't what I thought it was going to be. It's not uninteresting or even dissapointing, just different. I guess I have to learn I can't change the world (then again, if I can't even change a simple college program, why bother trying to change the world?) I've been told that I'm "difficult to read." I don't know how I feel about that because I've always considered myself fairly easy to read...I say what I mean and mean what I say in general.
On the brighter side, I get my ring tomorrow. Less than 24 hours and I will be wearing my "Crass mass of brass and glass." Beautiful. You'll all have to see it next time I go home.
Oh! I also met someone who digs good music. I know that sounds kind of stupid to post, but it's not often I meet another cadet with good taste...it's kind of cool. Not just music actually, he's got decent taste across the board...awesome.
