This morning I found a very close parking spot. And for that, I am thankful. Thanksgiving week is upon us and campus has emptied out. It is strange and a bit unnerving to work on a college campus during holiday seasons. With no students around, it’s just not as fun.
Still, it’s nice to know that our students, faculty, and…well, admissions staff get a day or two off to recharge and enjoy some time with family and friends. During the break, I hope you all get a chance to pause, and think about those things for which you’re thankful.
So, in the spirit of all fourth grade Thanksgiving plays everywhere, I wrote a list of what I am thankful for in no particular order.
Post-it notes, Skittles, red pens, remote control batteries, roommates who lend me their Sopranos DVDs, the hilarious use of the word “Doorbuster”, wheat bread, James Brown (the musician, not the sportscaster), Vanderbilt’s 6th win, Hydrogen being #1, banjo breakdowns, 2 for $4 deals which don’t require you to actually buy two, my awesome family, admissions essays that make me laugh, “West Wing” episodes in the morning, the equal demand for Inaguration and Phish tickets, Frontier Airlines, My 89 year old Grandpa, and the food on my table.
Your additions are welcome. Just post below.
Have a great break everyone. See you next week.
