Giving Thanks

I realized today that I spend so much time wishing and wanting that I forget to take the time to give thanks for all the things I do have. One of my good friends mentioned to me the other day that he was jealous of how exciting my life is, and I just replied, "My life is exciting?"
I've done more things and met more people than I ever dreamed to just since I graduated high school so I aught to give thanks to at least a few of the things.

Here's a list with just a small amount of the things I'm thankful for just in the past year:

I'm thankful for my roommates. This is the first time I've not only gotten along with my roommates, but also consider them to be my best friends. They always have my back and it's definitely never a dull moment with them around. No matter where we all end up in the future, I hope we stay in touch for a very long time.

I'm thankful for the talented people I've gotten the chance to worth with recently. As in a hurry as I am to work with the "big designers" I'm proud to have gotten a chance to connect with all the other up-and-comers here in Chicago and help them on their journey to the top. True connections go a long way. 

I'm thankful for food. Come on, you know it had to be on my list. I have been to so many new restaurants and markets this year, I've made my taste buds the happiest of all.

I'm thankful for my family. We aren't the closest knit bunch, but I strive to be the best I can be for my younger siblings because I know they look up to me and I strive to prove to my parents that I'm no fool (Billy Madison reference, anyone?).
