Thankful 2008

Instead of writing about my emotional break down in the middle of Penn Station, here's my list of things I'm thankful for this year.

This year, I'm thankful for:
-having a job.
-making enough money to live on my own (even if it's just barely).
-hearing "I love you" from 5-year-olds everyday.
-getting paid to hear that.
-having an unlimited MetroCard that's good for the whole year.
-friends at school who make huge Thanksgiving feasts.
-my coworker who drives me to the train every afternoon.
-Nussbaum & Wu bagels and iced coffee.
-the Dunkin' Donuts near my school.
-having friends who invite me to Thanksgiving dinner.
-the Pistons playing the Knicks so I can watch it here.
-my roommate's cute cats.
-sparkling water.
-American Apparel t-shirts.
-Bravo.
-random generous people who donate to my Donors Choose thingys.
-the MTA (sometimes).
-my Burberry earmuffs.
-friendly strangers.
-wireless internet.
-Barack Obama.
-ginger ale.
-a nice warm and cozy apartment.
-my family visiting in 8 days.
-all of my aunts, uncles, and cousins (whom I miss DEARLY).
-Tasti-D-Lite and Pinkberry (why don't we have these things in MI?)
-staying in touch with my good friends.
-my talented and amazingly smart little sister.
-my parents who I know will support me even if I join the circus.

Pretty good list, I think. Have a great Thanksgiving everyone!
