Happy Thanksgiving! 5 Things I’m Thankful For

Wednesday, 25 November 2009

It’s (almost) Thanksgiving! Even though I don’t eat turkey, Thanksgiving is my my absolute favorite holiday. Christmas is a close second, butistockphoto_10244291-turkey-cartoon Thanksgiving always seems much less stressed. It’s all about food, family and friends. It’s been a crazy, exciting and overall wonderful 2009, and I’ve got lots to be thankful for; here are the top 5 things I’m thankful for this Thanksgiving.

My Mom

For instilling in me a love of writing the way only an English teacher could, and refusing to let me be ashamed of how much I liked to read. And for humoring my 7 year old self’s Bick razor jingles.

My Fiancé

For taking me seriously when no one else would, and listening to all my wacky ideas–and occasionally even turning them into websites. Along with all the other usual lovey-dovey stuff, it’s nice that he’s a social media dork, too.

My Old Job

For laying me off and giving me the kick in the pants I needed to move forward in my career and find a job that improved my sleep schedule, and my self esteem. Oh yeah, and for introducing me to the aforementioned fiancé.

My High School Guidance Counselor

For pushing me to take more AP classes, which eventually allowed me to graduate college a year early, get a job, and start figuring out what I wanted to do with my life.

My Penchant For Procrastination

For helping me get to know Facebook very well as a college Freshman, and setting me up for a career steeped in Friending and Fan Pages.

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and holiday season! And be sure to leave comments with what you’re thankful for this year. Gobble gobble!
