Thanksgiving Dinner As Told By Ron Swanson

Thanksgiving is a time for family, a time for giving thanks, and a time for-- oh who are we kidding, Thanksgiving is a time for FOOD. If we're being honest, you're really not that excited to see your weird second cousins from down south. All you want is to stuff your face with potatoes and pie. Possibly the only person that enjoys a hearty meal more than you or me, is Ron Swanson. So, without further ado, enjoy this timeline of Thanksgiving dinner, as told by our very own Ron Swanson.

Your mom calls you out of hiding to come downstairs

Can we stop mingling with annoying cousins and drunk aunts and just eat already?

Getting called to dinner


Waiting for everyone to be seated so you can eat

You're so excited for sweet potato casserole you can barely stand it.

The food starts getting passed around, but all you want is the turkey

You refuse to be distracted with wimpy appetizers. Bring on the meat!

The younger cousins are being way too picky

They don't like the stuffing? More for you!

You grandmother tries to make sure you're eating your vegetables

Who brought broccoli to Thanksgiving dinner anyway?

...three helpings of food later..

You've eaten about twice your body weight in food and couldn't feel more fantastic.

"You should try the mincemeat pie!"

Everyone knows that apple pie and pumpkin pie are the best.

As you're laying on the couch in a food coma, unable to move

Never mind the fact that none of your clothes will fit for the next few days, it was all worth it.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

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.
