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 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?).
