Thankful for...

Tomorrow is the American holiday of Thanksgiving. Great food, terrible origins, but we won't go into what a horrible person Columbus was here.

Happy Thanksgiving!
Instead I'm going to celebrate tomorrow the spirit of Thankfulness.

What am I thankful for? Here's five:

 A fantastic family and amazing friends.

The opportunity to write. To choose my own destiny and have the capability to pursue it.

 Having a job I like, with coworkers I like.

Having access to books and having been able to get an education.

Indoor plumbing and a safe, warm place to live.

What are you grateful for this year?


  1. Being done with writing my DDIG, even though I probably won't get it.
    Being done with the SVP presentation, even though I wasn't even a finalist for the student award this year.
    Having a husband and an advisor who tamper my negative emotions over the frustrations of this paper I'm trying to publish and the gross anatomy class I'm doing poorly in because I've had zero time to study.
    The friends I don't get to see or talk to often because I've been so busy.
    The cat who curls up next to me while I spend yet another day sitting in front of a computer and working.
    I think most of all, I'm just thankful this semester will be over in one more month.

    1. Err...that should be *dampen* my negative emotions. *word fail*
