credit to a friend of mine for this idea-- the day you leave for inprocessing, drop yourself a letter in the mail reminding you all the reasons you're going to the academy, possibilities after basic &or graduation, etc. You'll most likely have forgotten about it by the time it arrives with the stress of basic and all... it'll be a nice reminder.yes, i am getting pretty nervous myself too. i'm thinking less about soaring as a cadet in the not so near future and more on making sure i have everything for i-day and making it through 1st beast.
but here is a suggestion i hear that will help us through beast and freshmen year and all the tough times at USAFA: remember why we came here (meaning USAFA). write down the reasons why and take them with us. when things get tough, recite them to ourselves.
a lot of cadets say that helped a lot and i will do it too i think.
