So my To-Do list is being knocked out left and right. It just can’t keep up with me. Love It! As a senior in college I have aspired to finish quite a few things before I graduate. Sort of like a bucket list except I do not plan on dying anytime soon. Woo. A few of the major items of the list were to visit the FBI academy. check. Run a marathon. In the works. Visit different people around the area. Mostly done. And best of all Visit the White House. Coming Up!
I have been given many amazing oppurtunities because of one of my best friends and I only have her to thank for the FBI visit to Quantico Va and now the upcoming tour of the East Wing of the White House. (Where the President Lives) She has connections and a top secret security clearance so she was able to set this up for herself and five friends. WOO! Good thing were friends right?? haha. She was even more fortunate than me and got a tour of the west wing of the white house about a month ago and yep she got to sit in the oval office. There’s nothing like me bragging about her accomplishments like I’m her mother or somehting. ha. In case you were wandering, she is only a senior in college like me. She is the girl I am running the marathon with in April.
So, we are planning for this trip and we are both super excited. We’re going to be driving down to D.C., then we will get the tour, and then of course the true nerds that we are, we want to hit up the Smithsonian. She and I previously went to the Spy Museum in D.C. If you have never been there I highly recommend it. So fascinating.
Overall I consider myself highly blessed and lucky to be given these oppurtunities. On an even lighter note I can’t remember if I already mentioned this in a previous post but I got the results to the Naval Officer Training Program back. After waiting for four weeks when my contact said it would only take one (Apparently their computer system was down or something. Freak Out.) he called me and filled me in with my scores. Yikes. Well, it turns out that I qualified for Intelligence. You’ve got to be shitting me. That is awesome. I do realize that this is only small and minute part of the hurtle into making this a realization but I can’t help but be excited. Because of the highly competitive nature of these programs I still have a long way to go before I find out if I actually make it. That’s okay with me, all I can do is try right?
So as of right now, everything is going A okay. I’m having a great break and I’m just trying to get some balls rolling for my future. Let me tell you how big and heavy those balls actually are. wew.
P.S. I just completed week 2 of my marathon training program and I ran six miles. That is the most I have ever run consecutively. I have forteen more weeks to go and as of right now I’m still hanging on.ha.
