Happy Thanksgiving everyone! As I did last year (I think, my memory is a little fuzzy), I’m going to make a list of 10 things I’m thankful of that are the usual things like family, friends, and food.

1. Fuzzy Blankets
On the colder days, I love to wrap myself in my fuzzy blanket and just be a toasty, blanket burrito. I don’t know how I would survive the winter without one.
For some reason, the last half of 2017 I’ve been sick very often. On top of that, I have allergies. Tissues have come and saved the day way too many times that it’s almost embarrassing.
As an artist myself, I know how much work it takes to create art (spoiler alert: a lot). Even the simplest art takes a lot of effort. I’ve been getting more into graphic novels, comics, and cartoons online, and the more I read these things, the more I appreciate the artists who took the time to draw all the stories out. To have to plan, sketch, outline, and color all of the artwork in a short graphic novel takes time.
4. Clean Restrooms
Biology class wrecked me. Learning about all the microbes, viruses, and germs make me very hesitant to go into a public restrooms.
Socks have a lot of functions. Not only do they make wearing tennis shoes a lot more comfortable, they also absorb most of the sweat from your feet so it doesn’t stink the shoe up. It has a lot of purposes other than for the foot, like you can use it to make stuffed animals or a koozie for your drink. They’re so versatile, and I can’t help but appreciate it.
6. My Planner
Oh my goodness, I would not be able to get anything done on time without my planner. My memory is crappy at best, so I don’t remember any of the assignments that my teachers assign. If I didn’t have a planner to write them all down in, I would’ve probably already forgotten to do a whole buttload of work.
I know I said this in my last year’s post, but I feel like the holiday seasons are the only times I get to take a break. Even then, I don’t think the break is long enough to get me fully rested, but at least it gives me time off of my hectic schedule.
8. Access to medicine
Kind of going off of #2 with the tissues, I was super sick a month or so ago, and without the medicine I was prescribed by my doctor, I’m not sure I would have been able to function.
More specifically, I’m thankful for the time I get to spend with the ones I care about. It’s nice to think that people are willing to take time out of their day to spend time with you. Time is precious, and the fact that someone is choosing to spend it with me makes it very special.
10. Creative Minds
From stories to infrastructure, the creative minds in the world are the creators. They are the ones trying to improve the world, whether it be emotionally, physically, mentally, environmentally, etc.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Until next time…. gobble gobble!
