"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green



On this day of thanks I felt I would list who/what I am thankful for.  But before we get to that, have a history lesson on Thanksgiving by the History Channel.

And now here is who/what I am thankful for:

My family:
  • My sister, Melissa - She is always there for me, each day every day.  I wouldn't be here without her.  She is my rock, my friend, the person I judge myself by.
  • My father, David - He is my champion.  He believes I can do anything, even when I'm screaming I can't.  I am engulfed in his love, and he makes my world feel safe.
  • My mother, Michele - I am just like her: smart, stubborn, emotional, righteous, strong.  I take my strong sense of self from her and I hope I am as great of a woman.
  • My brother, Raymond - He is the light in my life.  I can't imagine my life without him; I can't imagine a day where I don't get to see or hear about him growing up.  He is going to be a fantastic man one day.
  • My puppy, Jeb - He is my baby, my everything.  I rescued him, but at the same time he has rescued me.  He is just a little fur ball of love!
My friends:
  • Kaylynn - I've known her since we were babies.  We've gone through birthdays, homecomings, graduations, and soon-to-be marriages together.  I am so happy she has found such a great man to be with, and that I am one of her Bridesmaids!
  • Apryl - 7th grade she came into my life in Home Economics.  She knows EVERYTHING about me and I know the same about her.  She is my sister from a different mister.
  • Katy - I wouldn't be surviving college without this girl.  Because of an ex-friend I have one of my best friends.  I love her so much.
  • Desi - I've only known her for 2 years now, but she is a bright spot in my day.  Always able to make me laugh, she is like a younger sister to me.
  • David - I met him around the same time as Desi (it helps that they're best friends), but he is my Deputy Mayor.  David is my intellectual soul mate and I love him.
My Job:
  • Financial Aid - This job came into my life at just the right time.  I was working in a dead end position, but now I've found people and work that I actually care about.  I am so thankful for this opportunity.
My blog
  • Eli to the nth - With my 2 year blogoversary coming up this Sunday, I am so happy to have had such an amazing experience!  All of my followers make it enjoyable for me to keep going, I have had some cool opportunities, and I have read some terrific books!  Can't wait 

I hope you've all had an amazing Thanksgiving and leave me a comment about what you're thankful for.
