A Thank You Note To My Family And Friends

A Thank You Note To My Family And Friends

As Thanksgiving approaches, it's easy to get caught up in the excitement of that delicious, giant feast you get to stuff yourself with on Thursday. The food is definitely one of my favorite parts of Thanksgiving. However, during the holidays, I also love to take a second and really think about what I am thankful for. I know how incredibly lucky I am to have the opportunities that I do, and much of that comes from my family and friends. I wouldn't be able to do half the things I do without them, so I would like to take a minute and just say thank you. One thank you could never be enough, but I hope I always show my appreciation for you.

My family is the reason I am able to do everything I want to do in my life. I have wonderful parents who continually make sacrifices for my sister and me, never letting us forget how much they love us and support us. While my dad's constant worrying is enough to drive me crazy some days, I am lucky enough to have someone who worries about me and cares about me that much. I may argue when others say I am exactly like my mom but, ultimately, that is the largest compliment someone could ever pay me. My younger sister, who was my biggest foe growing up, is now someone I can consider one of my best friends. It has been a rollercoaster growing up together, and I would never change a second of it. I have exceptional grandparents who always go out of their way to help us with whatever we need. I am eternally grateful for all the help and love my family has provided me over the years.

My friends, both old and new, keep me sane and make me insane at the same time. The lovely friends that I have had since high school, or even earlier, thank you for always being there, even though we may not talk for several weeks at a time. I know that no matter what, if I ever needed you, I can always count on you to be there for me. Thank you to my best friends for always being willing for any crazy adventure we may come up with. I don't say it enough but without you all around, I wouldn't be able to appear as put together as I do most of the time. You are my partners in crime and I love every stupid, crazy thing we do together. To my personal cheerleader in everything that I do, I don't think I can ever put into words how much your support means to me. I couldn't do half the things I do without knowing that, even if I fall flat on my face, I would still have you there to pick me up with a well-placed joke and a speech on why everything is going to work out. I love you all and am so thankful that for whatever reason, I am lucky enough to have you all in my life.

Writing this, I hope I was able to express a small part of my gratitude to all of the important people in my life. Without writing a 10,000-word essay, I don't think I will ever truly be able to write it all down but this is a small way for me to really convey how special everyone is to me during this time of year.

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.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college 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.

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:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

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.
