tomorrow is my birthday (and birthday shout-out to Josh! his birthday was yesterday.) but with it being Thanksgiving and all I'll be extremely busy. football in the morning, stuffing my face with family all afternoon, then black friday shopping with Mo the whole night. I'm so looking forward to it all (and no that isn't sarcastic, I really am looking forward to it).
tomorrow I turn 24. 24! what the hell, when did I become an "adult" and how do I make it stop? 24 just seems old, like I should have my shit together. except um, yea, I don't.
but since it falls on Thanksgiving this year, I figured I'd give y'all 24 things I'm thankful for...
1:: my family. I have the best parents, brothers, sister-in-law, dog niece, grandma, uncles, aunts, and cousins ever. they're all so great (well, except maybe one or two.. but for the most part.)
2:: my friends. they're all always there for me, no matter what time of day or night.
3:: my job. it may just be a part-time coffee shop gig, and I might have to deal with annoying customers occasionally, but at least I have a job. and at least I get to work with some pretty slick people.
4:: our armed forces. because of you guys, past present and future, I can sleep soundly in my bed at night. we all have the freedom to enjoy a Thanksgiving day meal, or go to an Indian restaurant, or do whatever the hell we feel like doing.
5:: snail mail. so I can keep in contact with Josh, somewhat, while he's at boot camp.
6:: social media//texting. because it's a lot easier to keep in contact with friends and family this way than it is sending a letter and hoping for a response.
7:: my blog. (which is really just another thank you to Melissa, since she's the one who put the idea in my head). it's allowed me to meet so many awesome people, and broaden my horizons outside of the little bubble of a town I grew up in, and still call home.
8:: food. without it, I'd die.
9:: my small-ness. I may not be able to reach things way up high without a stool but I can fit my hand inside a pringles container.. so hah!
10:: television//movies. for keeping me entertained on cold, snowy, rainy days.
11:: my house. it may not be a giant mansion, but at least I'm fortunate enough to have a sturdy roof over my head every night.
12:: e-cards. they express my opinions in hilarious ways.
13:: vodka. it helps me cope with the hard times and celebrate the good.
14:: music. country in particular, for keeping me sane. especially on those busy days at work.
15:: my strong immune system. I don't get sick very often, thanks to it.
16:: God. I know I'm far from perfect, but I'm grateful that you forgive me for the sins I make daily.
17:: good spirits. everyone should just be happy all the time, or at least nice.. I love nice people.
18:: tips. the little extra cash allows me to give back. give to charities or take an ornament off a giving tree around the holidays.
19:: gifs. they're just funny.. especially New Girl gifs.
20:: freedom. I think it speaks for itself.
21:: parody videos. they're just damn funny. like the one James Franco and Seth Rogen made for Kanye's stupid video, hilarious.
22:: sports. they've taught me determination, discipline, motivation, teamwork, etc.
23:: my friends and family. they get two because they're that wonderful.
24:: celebrations. such as my birthday celebration, happening this Saturday.
I hope everyone has a very wonderful Thanksgiving! I know mine will be great! :)
