Raise your hand if you’re ready for Thanksgiving break! Since it’s right around the corner, I thought we’d dedicate this week to the greatness that is Thanksgiving.
Here we go!
ONE. Pretty much the only thing on my mind this week has been the fact that I’ll be home next week. Here at TAMU-C, classes aren’t officially cancelled until Wednesday at noon, but all of my Tuesday and Wednesday professors decided to cancel their classes so I get to go home Monday evening! The fact that I get to spend six whole days relaxing at home is overwhelmingly exciting. I’m going to enjoy every second of this break because after next week it’ll be time to get ready for finals week which is going to be awful. Can this week hurry up and be over so my break can start?!
TWO. One of my all time favorite things about Thanksgiving is getting together with all of my crazy family members. It’s one of the only times a year we all just get to sit around laughing, playing games, and eating delicious food surrounded by a spirit of thankfulness. I love my family and love the time we get to spend together this time of year.
THREE. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite times of the year because it’s when the weather starts changing. The trees turn color, and the air gets crisp. Everyone starts wearing sweaters, scarves, and pea coats. Seeing everyone walking around campus all bundled up gets me so excited for this colder weather. It’s my favorite.
FOUR. Everyone knows that the main reason people even get together on Thanksgiving is to eat. This time of year is known for people completely pigging out and slipping into tryptophan induced food comas in front of football games on their big screen. My family is jam-packed with amazing cooks, so at every Thanksgiving meal we have, every available surface is covered in dish after dish of delicious foods and desserts. My favorite Thanksgiving foods are baked ham, pumpkin pie, and roasted sweet potatoes. I’m not a huge turkey fan, so I leave that for the others. What’s your favorite Thanksgiving food?
I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Enjoy time with your families and remember everything you have to be thankful for!
