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

    Hey Honey!!
    OH MY GOSH........I watch the photo album on the parent page as each day goes by just hanging on to the minute that you show up in a picture. I try to read the expression in your face, trying to see if you're okay.....or happy.....or having fun......or scared......And I can't tell. Which is a good thing because you look very stern and official which is what they probably are trying to teach you. So keep it up, but could you give me just ONE wink in a photo letting me know you're well. I saw you on a boat that made me excited for you. WOW.....can you believe what you're doing??? I love you Keeg!

    Nice to get the pictures, and your blogspot site. I know the past month has been tough, and a very busy time. The pain will fade, but the lessons you have learned will stay with you all your life.

    We are glad to see that you are keeping busy and starting your academic studies.

    I hope you liked learning to sail as much as I did. One of my few regrets in my life was turning down a chance to crew on an America's Cup training race when I was your age.

    Hang in there, and we look forward to seeing more of what you are doing as you have time to update the blog.
