We all need a mid-Fall break in order to get ready for all of the excitement that will be coming with the December holidays. Luckily, Thanksgiving is right around the corner and there is a lot to look forward to and a lot to be thankful for. Here are just some reasons you may be looking forward to this upcoming holiday.

1. The dinner food

The turkey and mashed potatoes and all of the other great food is going to be on the table and we just can't wait to dig in.

2. The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

At this point it's just tradition to watch the parade with all of the floats in New York City, and of course see Santa at the end waving to us.

3. Being with family

Sometimes we don't get to see our families everyday, and that's why holidays are so special, so we can spend time with them.

4. Watching football

This has become as much of a tradition as watching the parade.

5. All of the desserts

Just thinking about all of the pies I can eat is so exciting. Might as well just have a slice of all of them.

6. Knowing that if Thanksgiving is here, then there are only a few more weeks of school

If you're in college right now, then you know Thanksgiving break just means that winter break is right around the corner.

7. Knowing that you can start listening to holiday music afterwards

If you're like me you've been listening for a while, but some people don't think it's socially acceptable to listen until after Thanksgiving.

8. The leftover turkey

Think of all you can do with the leftover turkey, there's soup and hot open turkey sandwiches and so much more.

9. Black Friday shopping

Although it's not technically on Friday as much as it is Thursday, it's still so much fun to go shopping to get al of the sales.

10. Being thankful for all that has happened within the past year

There is always something to be thankful for. No matter if it was a good or bad year for year, there is a reason to be thankful for where you are in life.

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
