So I started off strong with the blog and then it came time when I just couldn't put off my homework any longer. I am listening to a employee dispute in the next room, I just finished a major case study (due in less then two hours), and now I can relax and think about the incredible week I hope to have!
I am having Thanksgiving tonight with the boy and his family, Thursday is with my mom and family and Friday is with my dad. Three thanksgiving dinners is pretty awesome. To bad I really eat like a bird myself (unless it is ice cream and chocolate of course).
I am thankful for a lot of things. First, to be going into a profession where I am guaranteed some kind of employment. Things are shaky here and I hear about all the layoffs and I think it is so terrible. I appreciate my boss and all the flexibility she has given me when I needed to balance school and work. Best boss ever! No seriously! Best boss.
I am thankful for my friends. I have amazing amazing friends. I am self absorbed, talk to much and create drama, but my friends have proven that they will stick by me through thick and thin and thin again! Pretty crazy how lucky I am.
I am thankful for Chicago. I freakn love this City. Crowded "L" and all. I love the taxi's the downtown store windows, the never ending night life, the comedy, the diversity, and so much more. I just decided to come here and that was that!
I am thankful for my family. We got issues, but overall I would pick my family over all others! Except maybe Jon and Kate's :).
I am very very grateful for a girl named JF who drove me home every night after school for two years because we got out at 10pm and I would have to take a bus and a train in the cold frigid weather. I am so so so lucky that she is so kind and generous. I don't think I could have done it with out her! She was also my partner in some of the most major projects for school. Great partner! She doesn't read this blog, but she has the biggest Jager bottle in the world coming her way!
I am most grateful that I am practically done with school. I am grateful that I have the wonderful opportunity to be educated, but I am done and I am so HAPPY!!!
I am thankful for my health. I had some weird virus last year and was sick for a long time. It gave me compassion and understanding for those with terminal illness. I knew mine would eventually go away, even though it felt like a life time. I can't imagine knowing it wouldn't.
I am sure I missing a lot, but you get the idea. I am a lucky little girl.
