Top 5 Things To Do Over Thanksgiving Break

Fun things to do with friends and family.

During Thanksgiving break, most of us are looking for fun and exciting things to do. It doesn’t have to be expensive and you don’t always have to drive far. During this break, it’s a great time for us to relax with friends and family and to sit back and look at what we’re thankful for. Here’s a list of the top five things to do over break:

1. Black Friday shopping

Black Friday occurs the day after thanksgiving and entails tons of people shopping from the early morning until the time the sun sets. On this day, there are sales going on in every store on everything. So many people participate in this well-known day and enjoy the competitive attitude the day holds.

2. A day trip to the mountains

Taking a day trip to the mountains Is a great way to get away from stress and work. After working hard in school it’s a great way to get outside and enjoy nature and get some fresh air. It’s also a good way to exercise and to appreciate nature in its realest form.

3. Go to an apple orchard

This is a great activity to do with a group of friends or family. Whether you go to pick apples or to eat all of the apple flavored treats, you’re in for a great time. One place in particular that is fun to go to is Sky Top Orchards in North Carolina. They have hundreds of apple trees and fun things to do on their property. From apple, flavored donuts to fresh apple cider and fun family games a day at Sky Top is a great place to make memories.

4. Have a bonfire

This is the best way to spend time with friends from home. Getting a big group and sitting around a fire singing and laughing is a great way to relax and catch up with everyone. This is such a fun way to get to know your friends and to learn to appreciate them.

5. Thanksgiving

The most important thing to do over break is enjoy Thanksgiving with your family! This is an important time to really appreciate all that you have and all of the people in your life who love and support you. With these people you have grown into the person you are and it’s a great time to sit back and appreciate all that you have.

After completing these five things it is easy to say that you had a successful and fun break!

Thoughts That Go Through Your Head Daily When You're Socially Awkward

Prepare to feel uncomfortable

Oh, hello my name is socially awkward and I'm going to live in your head making every encounter with a human being as uncomfortable as possible. Now let's begin...

"Is that person waving at you?... ye... nope... HA gotcha!"

"This is definitely something a normal person would say. You should say it. Say it now so they will think you're funny."

"That's odd no one is laughing... do something with your hands."

"Oh no... silence..."

"Hmmm let's see, what social events do we have to avoid today?"

"Your phone is ringing!"

"Well looks like you're getting the hang of things so I'll just leave you to it."

5 Simple Ways To Keep Your Life's Bucket Full

The children's book "Have You Filled a Bucket Today?: A Guide to Daily Happiness for Kids" by Carol McCloud teachers early elementary students what it is like to have their very own bucket

GPositive behavior is not practiced by many but preached by all. It is important to understand that everyone has an invisible bucket. The bucket may be emptied if you did an action that leads another to unhappiness. The key to life is happiness. Why not practice it?

The children's book "Have You Filled a Bucket Today?: A Guide to Daily Happiness for Kids" by Carol McCloud teachers early elementary students what it is like to have their very own bucket. As an adult, it is important to be educated on how to treat others and fill another's bucket, whenever possible.

1. Say good morning

It takes two words. You could be out at the store, passing a classmate, or just wishing someone a good morning. Two words can make someone's dreadful day into a day worth living. Some people wake up on the wrong side of the bed and a simple greeting could help change their perspective.

Changing someone's perspective can alter their day. Have you ever thought, "Why is this person so mean... I didn't even do anything to them? A simple greeting could have changed the way they looked at their day. Be the person of change.

2. Be honest

I am sure you have told a lie. So what? Things happen and people tell a long tale or two.

But, in the bucket-filling world, you are dipping into another's bucket. You are trying to make yourself happy despite the lies you are telling. It is not good to lie and honestly turns out better in the end.

The best way to get along with people is telling them how you feel. Telling the person you do not like the way something is being handled or the way they act can help that person become someone you like... or at least tolerate.

3. Be careful what you say

When people post online, it could offend some while it may amuse others. It is important to understand that not everyone can take a joke. I have seen people get overwhelmed over content that may or may not involve them. Questioning online posts are ridiculous.

4. Engage in conversation

Is talking to people hard? Why not try and speak what is on your mind? It could be the hard truth, you being nice, or simply wanting to put yourself out there.

Make yourself known; you could be the talker of nothing or the talker of something. When you involve yourself in a conversation, make it memorable and unforgettable. Think before you speak and make sure you leave a lasting impression.

5. End the conversations

You want to leave a lasting impression. Make sure you end the conversation. Concise points leave a person with the acknowledgement that you cared about the conversation. Leaving your friends on "read" can leave them with the impression you don't care.

Putting friends off doesn't make you a good person either. Be there for your friends as much as they want to be there for you.
