As Thanksgiving approaches, I have been spending more and more time thinking about the things I am thankful for. I do not have a long list, but the thinks that I am thankful for mean so much to me, so I decided to share them with all of you! (These are in no particular order)

1. My Family

As crazy as they are sometimes, my family is my biggest support system. I run to my parents with any issue I have and they listen and do what they can to talk me through and help me with my problems. My brothers help when I have technology issues, when I need a laugh or a pick-me-up, or when I just want someone to binge AHS with me.


2. My Education

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F18%2F636150253487290365-1933615704_giphy.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=434&h=32465066faf947c98d4fdf3d6e8dc1143cc8340e42e9abf33885e58f4bcaf0e8&size=980x&c=2110085682 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F18%252F636150253487290365-1933615704_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D434%26h%3D32465066faf947c98d4fdf3d6e8dc1143cc8340e42e9abf33885e58f4bcaf0e8%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2110085682%22%7D" expand=1]

As hard as it can be, I am so incredibly thankful that I am furthering my education to become a teacher. The hours of making lesson plans, rubrics, worksheets, and all the hours spent in classrooms will be completely worth it once I have my degree and teaching license and can say I have a classroom of my own.

3. My Close Friends

Lately, I have felt very stressed and overwhelmed due to a number of things. Whether it be work, homework, my massive amounts of credits I decided to take, or anything else that has caused me to freak out on any given day of the week, you guys have been there to talk me through it all. You have been there with open arms, open ears, open doors and chocolate. You have been able to talk me down when I've felt stressed beyond words and you have been able to make me laugh when all I wanted to do was hide and cry. I appreciate you all so so much and I am so thankful for you all!

4. My Boyfriend

Like I already said, I have been a complete mess lately, and even when I can't tell left from down, you still find ways to help me see things clearly. You come surprise me and constantly make sure that I am taking care of myself because you know that is the last thing on my mind. You do everything you can to make me laugh and I appreciate it tremendously.

5. My Kindergartners

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F18%2F636150278877301268-1112809086_giphy.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=100&h=6762fccd53558b69088f42e19071daf8aaf3ee9936460c48d942e458485c1aa7&size=980x&c=356616583 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F18%252F636150278877301268-1112809086_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D100%26h%3D6762fccd53558b69088f42e19071daf8aaf3ee9936460c48d942e458485c1aa7%26size%3D980x%26c%3D356616583%22%7D" expand=1]

This semester I have been fortunate enough to be placed in a private Catholic school in Cleveland. My students are the sweetest boys and girls and they have the biggest hearts. Each day I walk into my classroom I am greeted by 27 smiles and waves and it makes my mornings so much better. Each day that I leave I hear "Bye Miss Kaylee" from 27 voices at once. They always ask me if I am coming back and get excited when I tell them yes. This week we were talking about Jesus and making crowns like the one he wore and one of my students came up me with a large smile on his face and said: "We are all God's little helpers." It completely melted my heart when I heard him say that. I just need a little more kindergarten in my days to make life seem better.

Those are the few things I am thankful for this year. What are you thankful for?

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
