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

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F20%2F6361525938446314742074443904_5.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=216&h=f6a4aaf24d3a37566afd6fd95acd1e24fed3104260467334652f2b8bfd9b3830&size=980x&c=1253225797 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F20%252F6361525938446314742074443904_5.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D216%26h%3Df6a4aaf24d3a37566afd6fd95acd1e24fed3104260467334652f2b8bfd9b3830%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1253225797%22%7D" expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F20%2F636152594025400571-1855595968_6.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=911&h=3f48c1e99ce32d7e941ba89af9772fc0b74c6ea94595292878869fcdc51334f3&size=980x&c=1384467139 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F20%252F636152594025400571-1855595968_6.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D911%26h%3D3f48c1e99ce32d7e941ba89af9772fc0b74c6ea94595292878869fcdc51334f3%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1384467139%22%7D" expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F20%2F636152594180900179-268443804_7.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=13&h=c027a39584c2ecbddf36f2eed865a84f3618ce3dd3b9a00bc16c5c00a9680536&size=980x&c=1539990889 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F20%252F636152594180900179-268443804_7.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D13%26h%3Dc027a39584c2ecbddf36f2eed865a84f3618ce3dd3b9a00bc16c5c00a9680536%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1539990889%22%7D" expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F20%2F6361525943242107521665671013_8.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=720&h=5e7c57298423cf564d08cb934b825ed61e424bb8c9ce1b41ddf7f63245eb5f16&size=980x&c=4178816070 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F20%252F6361525943242107521665671013_8.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D720%26h%3D5e7c57298423cf564d08cb934b825ed61e424bb8c9ce1b41ddf7f63245eb5f16%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4178816070%22%7D" expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F20%2F636152594546746800548480323_9.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=1012&h=3514c7085c5976ae44aac39947af07d2ebe6d06980d4d39f505ae9f63560868f&size=980x&c=1012424192 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F20%252F636152594546746800548480323_9.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D1012%26h%3D3514c7085c5976ae44aac39947af07d2ebe6d06980d4d39f505ae9f63560868f%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1012424192%22%7D" expand=1]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.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
