I almost didn’t write this. It seemed corny, and like an activity Oprah would encourage you to do. However, it is Thanksgiving, so what else am I going to post about? And, as it turned out, I could think of plenty of things I was thankful for. Here are ten such things (though I know I have many more). Some are serious, some are silly – but life should always be a little bit of both, I think.

  1. My family. One of the reasons I chose Michigan for law school is because I knew that, after law school, I’ll probably never live in Michigan again, and I thought it would be nice to be close to them for three more years (awwww.)
  2. My friends, especially the ones I’ve been friends with for awhile. I love shared jokes that never get old, even if you’ve repeated them to each other a million times.
  3. Living in the Lawyers Club. It takes me two minutes to walk to class. For someone who likes to sleep in until the last possible moment, this is crucial.
  4. Funny ladies: Amy Poehler, Mindy Kaling, Tina Fey, Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig. It’s a golden age for female comedy, I tell you. Girl power! (Oh god, why did I write that last sentence?)
  5. That I got into Michigan for law school. I like going to law school here so much that it borders on being embarrassingly dorky. But it’s nice to know that I made a good decision. I’m so much happier here than I was at my old job, and I feel like I know now that this is the right path for me.
  6. Starbucks Peppermint Mochas. They make me feel festive + happy.
  7. That my sister and my best friend both live in NYC. If they can’t be where I am, they might as well be there; I’ll always have a good reason to visit the city.
  8. The opportunity to travel. Over the past several years, I’ve gotten to travel overseas several times. It’s my favorite thing to do, and I know I’m lucky to have the means to do it.
  9. Stuffing, made by my dad. This is probably what I would choose to eat as my last meal. Just a plate of this stuffing. And I would die happy.
  10. My little puppy dog – the cutest and kindest dog a girl could ask for.

Happy Thanksgiving!
