Hey y’all!
Today was a great day. The sun was out, the weather was warm, and we went swimming! It was so nice to be able to take a break from watch and jump into the middle of Atlantic Ocean, a wonderful reminder of summer. All of the research track students are analyzing their results and I know they definitely needed the splash. It’s been a challenging but great time transitioning into JWO and JLO phase. There’s so much to keep track of, but the rest of the shipmates are so helpful and everyone has each other’s back. We’ve all grown really close, and with just 6 days away, it’s going to be hard to say goodbye. But until then, I’ll keep plugging away at our research paper and enjoying some new great friends.

Mama! I can’t wait to tell you all the stories
