In less than a week, it will be Thanksgiving! Where did the year go? Even though some of us live a fast-paced life, let’s take a minute to stop and reflect on what we are thankful for. Personally for me, there are several things. First and foremost, health. I am fortunate enough to wake up every morning and know that I am in good health – and I do not take that for granted. I know that there are people in the world that are less fortunate than I am in this regard. Second, the people around me. I have associated myself with some great people; some I communicate with on a daily basis, and others, I have not spoken with in years. Fantastic people none the less. Next, there is the education that I am receiving. I am glad that I have chosen Fontbonne to continue my education. Not only that, but also receive a generous scholarship this semester. Keep in mind, no matter if life is or is not going according to plan, there is always something that everyone is grateful for. Until next time, stay classy!
Is it just me or is this semester flying by? It’s that time of the semester where I have tests at least once a week. That’s why I can’t wait for Thanksgiving break! For Thanksgiving, all my siblings are coming together to celebrate. I am excited to see my sister that is six months pregnant with her first child! Another exciting thing about break is that I turn 21 the day before Thanksgiving! Even though Thanksgiving is mostly known for the perfectly brown and juicy turkey, the buttery mashed potatoes, the crunchy green bean casserole, and of course the pies, I am very thankful for all my family and friends, the ability to go to Fontbonne, and having wonderful professors. My question to you is what are you looking forward to during break and what are you most thankful for?
The thanksgiving break is coming, but that also means that our finals week is coming.
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays in the United States, because it means family gathering. It’s like the Lunar Chinese New Year in Taiwan. However, it’s sad that the final week of the semester is coming as well. Therefore, there are a lot of projects and assignments that are due, but I think it’s the process to be a student, learn by writing, reading, speaking, and doing. I believe all the process is to prepare me to be a more successful person in the future. I’d like to share a Chinese phrase to encourage my blog readers:
“The journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step” (Lao Tzu).
