Giving thanks

November 26, 2007 at 9:06 am Leave a comment

I just made it back from my Thanksgiving journey to Anchorage and I am a little depressed at the thought of going back to school. I meant to write a post on Thanksgiving about the things I am thankful for, but as usual procrastinated until today, so here it goes:

1. My wonderfully crazy family who spent the entire weekend piling delicious food in front of me and shopping like there was no tomorrow.

2. My new apartment which is conveniently located 6 minutes from the university. Some people would see this as an opportunity to show up on time to my classes. I, however, see it as an opportunity to sleep in for an additional ten minutes before waking up and rushing off to class.

3. Day after Thanksgiving shopping, which actually makes it fun to wake up at 4 a.m. and stand in various department store lines all day because, by god, you are getting the best deal EVER.

4. Getting closer and closer to graduation, which means getting closer and closer to being a grown up and making some money! Okay, I take back that last part, I want to be a journalist so the whole making money thing is probably highly unlikely.

5. Global warming. Just kidding, but I am kind of enjoying the balmy above-zero temperatures and not having to start my car thirty minutes before I plan to leave in the morning.
