So close to thanksgiving, and I wanted to share what I am thankful for. I know it’s super cheesy, but if you haven’t yet, you should make a list. It really makes you appreciate what you have. Here we go:
1. My Dog
-my little shih tzu is the most loyal best friend anyone could ask for, and he’s the best cuddler 🙂
-people think I exaggerate about how much I love coffee, but I am so serious when I say I could not live without it. I drink a cup at least 3 times a day. This is currently my favorite, it’s grown in Nicaragua and roasted here in Austin! My favorite coffee shop down the street on 43rd brews their coffee as well, so I’m always enjoying it.
3. The University of Texas at Austin
-UT has been my dream school my whole life. Everyday while I walk through campus, I can’t help but smile and remind myself of how grateful I am to be able to have the opportunity to go here. Hook Em!
4. My Combat Boots
As said on my previous post, I had been wanting some of these for so long. I got them exactly 3 weeks and 3 days ago, and I have not stopped wearing them. Even when they don’t match my outfit, I wear them anyways. With shorts, skirts, leggings, jeans, and anything else you can think of. Best investment ever.
5. Tegan And Sara
-These twin girls are geniuses. I used to love them back in my middle school days and then stopped listening because I overplayed their music. However, they were recently at Austin City Limits music festival, and after seeing them perform my love sparked back. Their beautiful, sassy, and powerful tunes stick in my head all day.
-For the past few weeks, a wish from God has come true and avocados have been on sale at my local fresh plus grocery store (2 for $1). It’s almost too good to be true. Everytime I’m bored, I feel the need to walk over there and grab some more. My roommate and I have made guacamole about 4 times this past week and if were not snacking on that, then were spreading avocado on toast, putting it in salads, or just eating straight out of the shell. I am so thankful for that.
7. Friends and Family
-So unoriginal, I know. But really, I have the most diverse family in the world and the greatest group of friends anyone could ever ask for. We’ve all been friends for so long, they are pretty much a part of my family. (here’s a little mini slideshow of them)
-Lastly, I am so thankful that I have been learning Arabic this semester. I am half Lebanese, so I already knew some, but I am currently taking an intensive course at UT where I have class everyday and practice it for hours a day. As much of a pain that it can sometimes be, I can’t get enough of it. I plan on taking it every semester until I graduate and using it with my future career. Look at this beautiful script.
Thats all for now, I hope this motivates you to make a list of your own on this jolly holiday! I’ll be at the UT vs TCU game today, but I hope all of you gobble up bunches of turkey, be thankful, spend time with your families, and be grateful!
HAPPY THANKSGIVING! (ﻋﻴﺪ ﺷﻜﺮ)
