This is just a quick post to remind everyone that Thanksgiving comes before Christmas, just in case the retail stores have you confused. It is so easy to get caught up in the hectic, high-energy commercialism of the season I think it is easy to forget why we celebrate these holidays in the first place. I am certainly thankful for my family and friends and for all the niceties I’m able to afford even though my social life feels like it has completely tanked right now because of work. Welcome to the holiday rush. I am thankful for both of my jobs and for the opportunity they afford me to not have to work this hard later in life when the student loans are paid off. Whether you are a holiday fanatic, a Scrooge or somewhere in between think of at least three things you are thankful for and tell somebody. Happy Thanksgiving. I’m taking next week off for the holiday so I’ll see you in two weeks.
