I am Thankful For...

I will be in the Wild, Wonderful West Virginia this weekend so I'm assuming my posting will be slacking. Since work was so crazy this week, I had limited time for posting.

If I miss Feminist Friday this week, forgive me! I have a good one in store for you next time, no worries.

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, though, I will leave you with the things I am thankful for. Please excuse the corniness.

  • I am thankful to be alive. I am grateful for the opportunity to have life and make what I want out of it.
  • I am thankful for my family. No one is perfect but my parents come very close. Knowing I can call them at any time and that they would be there for me at a moment's notice is so comforting, and I know that is something many of us take for granted.
  • I am thankful for UK Basketball. They are so good and I was lucky to be raised a fan and call myself an Alumni! 

    Number 8!

  • I am thankful for my fun and fabulous friends who keep my life exciting. Who will do a victory dance with me on stage after we win a round of beer pong (see below).  I am also grateful for those close, dear friends like Mary, Amanda, Whitney, Jen and others who have stuck by me in the tough year that I recently had and truly helped to pull me through.
True Friendship

  • I am grateful to have a job that I enjoy and that challenges me. I know enjoying your job and getting great experiences is hard to come by, especially right out of college. So I hope to make the most of it while I'm here.
  • I am thankful that my boyfriend is as big of an animal lover as I am.
Muaha payback!

  • I am thankful that I have been fortunate throughout my life. (I don't like when people say they are "blessed" because that makes me think God blessed them with something but chose not to "bless" someone else with good things. I don't think that's the case.) But I am grateful that I have not ever experienced some true hardships in my life that others in less fortunate situations have come to call life.
  • I am grateful that my co-workers gave me the nickname "Kaliwood" for reasons like the photo below. A nickname that inspired a resurrection for my blog.

  • I am thankful that I was raised the way I was. Under other circumstances, I probably wouldn't have known the difference, but I'm glad that I was taught I can achieve anything I set my mind to, and that I shouldn't let anything stand in my way, or ever settle for second best. 

I hope you all have a very fun, filling, family and friend-filled, Thanksgiving!
