Indoctrination - COMPLETE

Hey everyone! I'm back in society. Indoctrination period is now over. One goal accomplished but a long road ahead still. Indoc. really pushed to do things I never thought I could push myself to do. I'm actually starting to get in shape for once in my life. Each morning we would wake up at 5:15AM, got used to it. We would drill, get yelled at, eat and drill, class, then go to bed at 9:30pm. Rough first week. But as it got bad it got good, if that makes any sense. I got to do things I would never be able to do back at home. Such as sail a 1800's Schooner, which is a big old battle ship looking sailboat. We got to do safety test in orange gummy suits, drive several types of boats, sail on racing sailboats worth 3-9 million dollars!!! Some pretty cool stuff. It's hard to be this far from home. I really miss everyone and hopefully it will get better here! Classes start wednesday and I'll have an 18 credit hour load for the first trimester. Lots of work to do. Thanks for all of the support I have gotten from everyone back home.

Miss ya and love ya, Keegan

It's Off To The Big Apple

18 years spent at home, twelve spent in the great town of Ponder, TX, and now four years 2,000 miles away from home. It's a big jump but I think i'm ready for The Academy! I just hope New York City is ready for me. It's been hard to say goodbye to friends and family, but I know it's for the best. I'm going to miss Texas!!!!

My goal is to update this blog as much as possible to let everyone back home know what I'm up to. I won't be able to update this until August because of indoc. Once I am able to update this thing I will post plenty of pictures and comments, so stay tuned....
