    Does anyone remember the name of the thread which explained how to get through a year at KP? It was broken into time periods. Really great thread. I want our new members/PCs to see it. Thanks!

    It was a stressful roller coaster ride, with the final year nearly as bad as plebe year. But she is employed and really enjoying the rewards of all of that hard work. Her ship has been in and out of Boston over the last couple of weeks and she has managed to get tickets to 2 of the Boston Bruins playoff games. After the last one she posted on Facebook, "I love my job!" :thumb:

    Most excellent news. I hear you about Plebe year and 1st class year. I am constantly amazed at the resilience, stamina, steadfastness, and pure guts all students eventually develop to great depths at KP, which eventually pays off when they graduate.
