I'm sorry, but are you applying to Starfleet Academy as a Vulcan?texas_falcon said:I want to be as unemotional as possible that morning because I think it would make it just a little bit easier.
She'll have tears in her eyes, out of pride as well as what Mom mentioned.My mom will be crying and that's why I did not want my parents there, but they are coming along regardless.
You won't be. You're better than that, and you know it. Suckers and wimps generally don't get into USxA unless they are uber geeks. You'll be fine.texas_falcon said:When I said I wanted to be as unemotional as possible, I meant I didn't want to be the blubbering buffoon sitting in the fetal position on the floor in a corner sucking my thumb.
Well, there's more here than just you. Your parents have brought you to where you are now. They have a right to see you off into adulthood, especially with you entering USAFA. Don't make them feel bad for being there.It just fits my personality more to say my goodbyes at the airport and get the last hugs and kisses there and then have the time to clear my mind and "get over it" so to speak. That's just me though.
