10 things I'm thankful for

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I present 10 things for which I am thankful right now:

1. I got into my school of choice. I sometimes need to remind myself of this, but it's true. Lots of people don't.

2. I met an awesome guy and am in a relationship that's making me happy. It's true.

3. I live with nice people, including my best friend. Lots of people live with assholes.

4. My apartment is beautiful. I've lived in plenty of dumps in my day.

5. My family is healthy and alive. And I'm within a couple hours of my brother and his family; I'll be there later today, in fact.

6. I'm doing well in school. One of my fears was getting into SOM and then struggling to understand anything and barely passing. So far, that is not true.

7. I have wonderful friends. I'm not sure how I pulled this off, but some truly amazing people seem to care about me.

8. I have my things with me. One of the nice differences between grad school and undergrad is that in undergrad I was away from all my things -- my bed, my books, my video games, my photographs, and all that stuff. Now that I'm a grown-up, my home is my only home, and all my things are here. Nothing to miss, and that's nice.

9. A new cultural experience. Living in the Northeast for the first time is fun and educational.

10. I have a blog! I'm skeptical about technology in a lot of ways, but this is a nice way to keep a journal and hopefully share some things that might be useful. Keep reading, please!
