This time of year is the perfect opportunity to start reevaluating your priorities. Football season is coming to an end so we can actually start trying to study on the weekends. The New Year is right around the corner meaning it’s time to think about New Year resolutions. Finals are approaching faster than Johnny Football rising to the top so it’s definitely the time to start visiting the library more. Thanksgiving is here so it’s the best time to recall what we’re thankful for, so I have included the top five things that I couldn’t live without.
5) Classes. Wait a second…did I just say I was thankful for class? I know, it’s odd to think about but when it boils down to it, I appreciate my professors and what they do to help me succeed. I absolutely love going to classes that I can relate to and apply to my life. I am thankful that I have this opportunity to better myself and become successful one day (hopefully).
4) Food. I have been called a “foodie” a few times. It’s a title that I am happy to claim because quite frankly, my everyday life revolves around where my next meal is coming from. So yes, I have to include one of my top priorities in this list.
3) Friends. A normal human could not survive without a good set of dependable friends. They’re the people who you can’t stay mad at because you just laugh at each other. I am so thankful to have my amazing friends supporting me, even though they sometimes don’t claim me, through all my hardships and triumphs.
2) Family. Of course I have to include my family. They are a vital aspect to my everyday life. They support me through everything and they give me my allowance (most important). I know that they’re only a phone call away for advice, jokes, or the usual “I ran out of money again”. I am blessed to have my crazy and amazing family beside me.
1) Texas A&M. Okay, so who could not include Texas A&M in their “I am thankful for…” list? Being an Aggie is the highest honor that I have. Every day, we get to wake up and go to THE Texas A&M University; a blessing that other students wish they had…whether they admit it or not. Our prestigious school is sacred and I could not imagine living a happy life without it.
There you have it...my “thankful for…” list. I challenge you to make your own list. This is the perfect time to set your goals for 2013 and examine how your priorities may need to be moved around. Obviously, my number four priority should be replaced with something else and that’s something that I can work on for the New Year. The reasonable thing to do would be to change “food” to “fitness”, but we’ll see about that one. I hope everyone has an amazing Thanksgiving. Enjoy the break while you can!
