10 Reasons My Life Makes Me Full Of Thanks

With the Thanksgiving season on its way, it makes me think of all of the things and people I'm thankful for. As I sit down with everyone from my family and look around the table that goes on for miles, it makes my heart happy that I'm able to sit with everyone I love on this day. There are many things and people in my life that I'm thankful for, here are 10 to name a few.

1. My family

The squad of five and the squad that has been through it all. Thanksgiving is the best time because it's when everyone in my family is home and all together. My siblings and I are all home from school so we get to pick back up right where we left off.

2. My 3 grandparents

I'm so thankful for my grandparents and that I am still able to see them and celebrate Thanksgiving with them. They are always giving out the best hugs and the brightest smiles. I love telling them how school is going and how I'm so excited to eat homecooked meals.

3. My extended family

My extended family has been living only 20 minutes from me my whole life, so when we all went off to school it was hard not to just call someone up to go hang out. So when I get to go home for the Holidays it's so fun getting to catch up with everyone and laugh about all the things that have happened in our life since we last saw each other. It's one of the best feelings.

4. My cats

While I'm talking about family, yes I will include my cats because they are part of the family. They make me happy and the fact I get to see them in a couple of days makes me happy.

5. My High School Friends

I'm thankful I get to go home and still meet up with my friends from high school. Even though we all went to school at different places we still have managed to keep in touch. We are able to talk about all the memories we made in high school and laugh about them all. However, we are still making memories and keeping each other laughing.

6. My College Friends

I'm thankful I get to see these lovely people every day while in Tennessee. They have made me a home away from home and that's all I could have asked for during my years at college. They have given me memories that I will always remember and memories that will always make me laugh.

7. My health 

I'm happy I am a healthy 20 year who gets to have a good time with her family this Thanksgiving.

8. My education 

Even though I can't wait to go home and I say I'm tired of school all the time, I am thankful that I am able to receive such a good education. I'm glad that what I'm learning will help me later in life and help me get a job.

9. The home I get to go home to.

I'm thankful every time I get to go home to a warm home that is there to put a roof over my head.

10. Encouragement 

I'm thankful for all the encouragement I receive from everyone around me. If it wasn't for the people around me constantly lifting me up when I was down I don't know where I would be.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
