Ten Things to be Thankful For 

There are so many beautiful reasons I have to be happy.

With Thanksgiving just passing, and the holiday spirit I’m completely in, I’ve been thinking about things that I have in my life that I’m thankful for. Here’s some, to name a few:

Family

Obviously I’m thankful for my family. I am lucky to have two parents, five siblings, five niblings (it’s a word, look it up), several aunts and uncles, and countless cousins. I am not extremely close to the major of my family, but I am close to a number of them. I consider my family the most dysfunctional one out there, but I mean who doesn’t? I still can’t help but love us for what we are, anyway. On both sides of my family, the matriarchs are the ones with power. I never met my paternal grandfather, and my mom’s dad isn’t as social as he used to be when we were little, so I’ve looked up to my parents’ moms my entire life.

The Holidays

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, right?

Sure…but it also isn’t. With all this stress building up, the holidays seem to be the only thing to keep me moving right now. It always has been —and let’s face it, always will be—my favorite time of the year, despite the lack of money in my pocket.

I have so many great memories with them—hell, just about every memory I have with them is good—but I will try my best to name some of my favorites.

1. It’s My Money and I Need it Now

My sophomore year, my roommates and I spent a lot of time in our bedroom. Our only window in our shoebox room opened out towards the courtyard, which was boxed in by three res halls.

Bet You Thought You’d Seen the Last of Me

Ya girl is back!

So I’ve been stuck in a rut lately. I’ve been feeling stuck in general, and the only way I know to get myself out is to write, so here I am.

I’m going to try something new for myself, I’m going to do a weekly thing. Every Tuesday, I am going to list things. That’s right, the segment of sorts is called Top Ten Tuesdays. It won’t necessarily always be ten things, but I will try my hardest to keep it at ten. It honestly just sounded better than Top Tuesdays.  Continue reading “Bet You Thought You’d Seen the Last of Me”
