My Thanksgiving On Campus

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and a good time Black Friday shopping with their friends and family. You know, when you go to a college that is half way across the country from where you live, its not cheap flying back and forth on breaks. It does suck being away from your family and friends on Thanksgiving, especially family, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a wonderful time.

On Thanksgiving, my day started off slow, a little scary because there was no one on my floor. Ha, it made me think of a zombie apocalypse seeing that there was no one on my floor. The cool thing about that is no one can complain about your loud music or loud singing in the shower 😀 I got to admit that was pretty fun. Here are a few songs I couldn’t stop replaying: Real and True, and Unconditionally.

I did also have fun getting ready for my little dinner. I figured why not just throw on a dress, do my hair and make-up and make myself a Thanksgiving dinner. And when I say make, I mean everything was made in a microwave.

     My dinner consisted of macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes, green beans, and kiwi strawberry flavored Sparkling Ice, and course dessert,  dutch apple pie with a glass of milk. It wasn’t that bad. I especially had fun eating the whip cream. Haha!!

The highlight of my day was Skyping with my family back at home, and watching my parents cook and being able to talk with my brothers, my grandma, uncle and parents. It was really nice and heart warming seeing and hearing from them. You know, we live in a world where we have easy access to anyone who lives across the country by a simple action as pushing a button. Even though I am so far away from them it is nice to know that I can still see them every once in a while.

As tradition goes, we usually say what we are thankful for. Here we go:  I am thankful for the time that I live in.  I am thankful for having the opportunity to attend a wonderful college. I am thankful for being a little and big sister. I am thankful for who I am. There are so many things to be thankful for, but most of all, I am thankful for the friends I have at my side and my family. My friends, are one of the most amazing people anyone can ever meet. We are a funny bunch, and I can never be thankful enough of them staying by my side and putting up with me; with everything about me. My family, I cannot live without. They are everything to me and are what I am most thankful for in my life.

I want to hear what you guys are most thankful for in your life. I know it’s not Thanksgiving anymore, but it never hurts to stop and think about the smallest, or most meaningful things in your life that you are thankful for. 🙂

 Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!
