I'm home for thanksgiving and it's the first time I've been back since I left for school. Its the paradox effect where whenever your at school you wish you could go home but when your home you just cant wait to go back.
This break my experience is a little different. I've been sick with a nasty sore throat and cold symptoms since last Friday and have been basically been quarantined away and haven't left my house all week. Partially because its cold outside and partially because I've been so stressed at school that I could really use some R&R.
anyway I've been too sick to do much of anything except for reading, watching TV and sleeping so I decided to make my post today about what I'm most thankful for, because of today being thanksgiving and all that. (fun fact. I celebrated thanksgiving last Saturday but i was really sick then so I didn't take pictures or anything)
so in no particular order her are five things Im thankful for:
My Boyfriend, Alex
Although at times he can be really cheeky, hes been super helpful this week with me and my cold. He made me soup, tee, and drove out of his way to get me hot and sour soup from my favorite chinese place. Hes gone beyond his typical boyfriend duties, and is actually a really awesome guy. Im thankful that hes stuck around through my craziness and continues to be my best friend.
Because although they're crazy, Id be really sad without them. My dads smart and hardworking and does the best with his situation. He taught me and my sister well. My sisters awesome. although sometimes we get into full out brawls in public we always bounce back to besties. I've grown up with her so we know each other pretty well and I miss spending time with her when Im away at school.
I worked really hard to get into UIUC, (and even harder to pay for it) I'm blessed with the opportunities that i have there and the clubs and networking events I can be a part of because I'm a student. Its the most beautiful, independent, and creative place I've ever been. its helped me fall in love with my major and prepared me for my future. I've met my best friends and learned how to cope with one to many roommates in a room the size of a prison cell. Overall I wouldn't change anything!
It's my baby, my lover, my relaxation time. It doesn't judge me for binge watching shows or watching terrible documentaries or children's tv shows or whatever I feel. I've had a netflix account since 8th Grade (7 years) and because of that have binged watched many shows.
Good thrift stores
sure. Sometimes they smell like the inside of a shoe box but where else can you find awesome, unique vintage (or last season's) clothing for less then a meal at a fast food restaurant? Given the choice over whether to eat or to shop ill choose shopping every time. Im also always thankful for a good sale too. :)
Alright well this post was just a short and sweet one but what are 5 things your thankful for?
