Preparing for the post-Thanksgiving push

Well, I’m back from Thanksgiving break, and things are as hectic as ever! Two papers, a test, and production night for the Collegian (our school newspaper) ALL this week! Yikesss!!! I have to remind myself that it’ll all be over soon–two weeks of regular classes left, then one week of finals. This semester has gone by sooo fast! I can’t believe it’s already almost time for Christmas break. I realized that I never really stopped during the holiday break to think about what I’m thankful for. So, in light of Thanksgiving, I decided to make list of a few things:-My family (rather proverbial, I know, but something I can’t take for granted!)-My modmates (I don’t know what I’ll do next year when they’ve all graduated!)-My other friends here at Bethel who aren’t in my mod but who I still love dearly-The opportunity to study abroad next semester-Popcorn-Fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies-Warm summer days-Puppies and kittens-Getting into long-distance running these past few months (though now I’m waiting for a stress fracture in my shin to heal–not so thankful for that!! :P)…and the list could go on. One thing I WILL be thankful for is accomplishing everything I need to this week–and hopefully do a decent job with it!
