Our last day of midterms! We all finished strong with our final test being navigation. We had anchored for about a day to take the midterms and we headed out shortly after lunch. We all helped raise the sails and we were moving! I did not have watch until 1800 so I had the majority of the afternoon free. I got to catch up on some work and laundry. We then had class with half of B watch. It was history and we got to have a very fun and amusing debate about the 14th Amendment. After many good points and some competitive cross examining, class was dismissed, and it was time for a quick nap before dinner. At 1745 my watch had a fast but delicious dinner made by one of the galley assistants. It was then a race to wash our bowls so we could relieve C watch in time for them to eat a hot meal as well. I spent my time on forward lookout planning the possible meals I would make with Sean tomorrow as galley assistant! Excited and ready to 0500 for breakfast prep, I brushed my teeth and headed to my bunk. Also thinking about the mail drop that we have been very excited for!
