November, Part Two

I'm learning that I'm not so good at daily blogging. As in, I constantly forget. So, weekly? Sounds good to me!

November 8: I'm thankful for chill bosses (yes, I said that) and understanding what's actually happening in Latin (or understanding the homework, anyway)! Totally something I could get used to.

November 9: Today, I'm thankful for ALL of my amazing friends here. I have met so many people that I never dreamed I would have so much in common with. I'm also thankful that I got to spend my Friday night celebrating Carson's birthday with these awesome people:

November 10: I'm thankful for football! (But really, when am I not?) I'm also grateful that if anyone had to stomp was the GA Tech jackets and not State. It's all about putting things in perspective, sometimes.

November 11: On Veteran's Day, I am always reminded of how thankful I am for my dearest cousins and grandfather who have all served in the military. I'm always thankful for everyone who helps, serves or protects our beautiful country in some way or another.
(Honorable Mentions for today: Allie, who lets me crash her Notebook watching party and Devin, the best RA ever, who never fails to make me laugh.)

November 12: I'm thankful for UNC CLD-FLI and the friends I made and the things I learned through this program.
(More Honorable Mentions: (help! I'm overflowing with thanks.) re-watching The Lion King and all the amazing childhood memories that were all brought back.)

November 13: Today, I'm beyond thankful for that feeling of accomplishment and the thought that maybe, just maybe, studying helps. And lights at the end of tunnels (read: the beautiful afternoon after a test). That's nice too.

November 14: Why has someone on this campus not started selling buttons that say: "I survived the great UNC registration of _________ 20___"? Along those lines: I am thankful that I survived the great UNC registration of spring 2013 and even getting some of the classes that I wanted!

What are YOU thankful for today? There's always something, even if finding it requires a little searching. (:

A Month of Thanksgiving

I have a full page of draft posts to be written (really, there are probably 12 or more), but today, I was reminded by an incredibly wise English professor how important it is to write, even if it's five sentences. I'll probably go over that, but for what's left of November, my challenge to myself to write one post every day (my ulterior motive is also to avoid pissing off my Facebook friends with a daily status on what I'm thankful for; yay, happiness!).

So in order to catch up on what I missed:
November 1: I don't remember what was going on that day, but I'm pretty sure I was probably just thankful to be alive. That's always a pretty solid bet.
November 2: I remember having an especially awesome conversation with Amanda that day, so in case the last 15 years haven't proved as much--I'm always thankful for my amazing, beautiful, funny, supportive best friend.
Reunited over fall break! There was probably a lot of ugly crying happening at this moment.
November 3: I'm thankful for my job and my amazing bosses. Saturday was our big scholarship awards brunch and it went wonderfully--thanks to all of their hard work!
November 4: Sundays, as every good football fan knows, are NFL Sundays. Unfortunately, as every college student knows, it's also Last-Minute-Forgot-About-Homework-Due-on-Monday Sundays. I'm thankful for my wonderful dad who texts me the scores of the Green Bay Packers games because he knows I can't watch.

November 5: I'm thankful for productivity and warm libraries. It was cold, rainy...and just the right temperature inside Davis to get the majority of my paper written.
November 6: I am thankful for the fact that in this country, I can wear whatever I want, say whatever I want, love whomever I want and stand up for these same rights for others.

And finally, today:
November 7: I'm thankful for inspiration; the inspiration to write, to be healthier, to go the extra mile when I just feel like giving up. I'm also thankful for the gym and Miranda, 'cause Lord knows this girl don't work out by herself at home.

What are you thankful for?
