Ship Life

Most days I get up on the early side because of the constant time changes. In the next ten days we are crossing 5 time zones, so every other night we get an extra hour of sleep. Sometimes I’ll join the Crossfit group in the morning, or run on one of the ellipticals with an ocean view. And breakfast is the best meal of the day, so I’m always up early for that.

Every morning I do two hours of work study. We don’t have an office, so we just gather in one of the common areas and work on different projects. Right now we are making table tents with fun facts about SAS, and putting together a jeopardy game about SAS. I like all of my coworkers, and our leader is great too.

My classes have been going well so far, I have only been assigned reading, but I’m sure we will get bigger projects soon.

In the evening there are a few optional lectures. I attended two last night, one was on how to do SAS on a budget, and the other was about Japanese culture and history. It was presented by a very soft-spoken, yet very funny, Japanese woman who joined SAS in Hawaii, and will be getting off in Tokyo.

Every evening after the lectures there is a dance class. Day before yesterday was “cardio dance,” last night was Salsa, and tonight is hip-hop. Each is taught by one or two students. I said I would teach Line Dancing one night. Afterwards there are snacks and pub-night, where everyone gathers to socialize.
