Thankful After Thanksgiving

Since Thanksgiving, I have been counting my blessings.

I am thankful for Thanksgiving, because it reminds us to be thankful in a world where we tend to forget the little things.

I am thankful for good food and good company.

I am thankful for music, because my life would be colorless without it.

I am thankful for the often-unnoticed beauty that can be found with every breath we breathe, every sight we see, and every step we take.

I am thankful for this break. I would have gone a little insane without it. I am thankful for the spare time, the rest, and the lack of things to do.

I am thankful for those moments where I slip off into quiet reflection. They help me understand myself a little more and provide some much needed clarity.

I am thankful for video games, because nothing soothes a troubled soul quite as well as beating up virtual bad guys.

I am thankful for the gym at ICO. Convenient and great way to de-stress.

I am thankful for space heaters in cold weather.

I am thankful for a great roommate who has turned our apartment into a charming and homey place of residence. Bros4lyfe

I am thankful for those who sit through my philosophical ramblings and entertain my unorthodox way of thinking. It’s nice talking to people who are on the same wavelength or at least are receptive to my wavelength.

I am thankful for the Internet. What would I do without you?

I am SO thankful for Internet recipes. Sandwiches everyday = bleh.

I am thankful for amazon. It has never been so easy for the common man to buy whatever he wanted without having to get out of his chair.

I am thankful for my parents, who made it possible for me to study at ICO. I am so thankful for all that they do, all that they’ve done, and for the unconditional love that they have for me. I am thankful for their trust and the freedom that they’ve given me to pursue the life I choose.

I am thankful for caffeine.

I am thankful for the opportunities I’ve been given and the opportunities that are available at ICO.

I am thankful for the class of 2018 (who are pretty awesome.)

I am thankful for the challenges that I face in optometry school. There was a time where I was bored out of my mind and was always looking for something to test my limits. Finally, I have it.
