Well, it's that time of year again. I'm always amazed by how quickly the holiday approaches because every year when I sit down to binge watch the Thanksgiving episodes of Gossip Girl it feels like I've just done it recently. Every year I also find myself thinking that the previous year had been the hardest yet and it couldn't possibly get harder. I came into my last year of college thinking I finally had it all figured out in terms of school, friends and boys and within two weeks everything I thought I knew had unraveled entirely. I hated that I was feeling down and wasting time replaying situations wondering what could have happened. So I made a conscious effort to acknowledge happy moments as they were happening and hold on to them, to really feel them. I know that I'll keep opening my heart to people and taking chances because that's who I am. Especially because when I take a step back from my life, I realize that compared to everything else going on in the world, my problems don't seem so big. And as I filled my plate with stuffing turkey and everything in between, I couldn't help but smile and think how much I have to be thankful for. I'm extremely grateful for the amazing friends I have who have been more than I could ever ask, my family both near and far, and this incredible city that I get to call home that reminds me that maybe I'm not that crazy after all.


Hope you all had a lovely holiday filled with family and food! Happy Thanksgiving!
