This week was one of the busiest weeks of the year. With several final papers due in English, History, and Oceanography, the girls felt a little bit of stress this week. At Hyde St. Pier on Tuesday, we got the opportunity to sail a small fishing boat that dates all the way back to 1917. We sailed away from the pier into the bay and because of the high force winds, we did a lot of tacking. We had class with Vincent on Wednesday. Unfortunately, this was the last communications class of the semester. I will never forget how he put things into prospective and his fun, loving, honest attitude that he brought to class with him every single day. He is a major part of my growth this semester. Building our small boat is coming along as well. I got my first splinter as I was drilling holes in the bottom of our boat. It hurt for a while but Molly came to the rescue and found a way to remove it from my index finger. Our documentary is coming along nicely. We put in all the interviews we wanted as the audio and even got as far as choosing B-Roll. We continued our daily exercise with running the lake and bootcamp. I’ve have done so many things this semester that I have never done before.
