On Thankfulness, 2013 edition

So, it’s that time of year. We’re all thankful or maybe we feel like assholes because we’re not. But, whatever, because really I am so very, very, very thankful this year. I’ve had a lot of changes in the last year and I can honestly say I have never feel more alive or happier ever. Therefore, without further ado, I give you my list of things I am thankful for this year. Some of this may be vague and not make sense, but if it doesn’t make sense to you, too bad. It’s my blog :p (I have had some wine. Bear with me.)

These are in no particular order. Also, I have no idea how many I will write. Let’s see how this goes.

  • Twitter. I am thankful for you. There are a lot of people on here whom I really like, some I more than like. But, some of the most important people I have in my life, I met because of Twitter. I have Facebook and I use it occasionally, but I hate it. It’s filled with a lot of people I know because I had to know, but I have little in common with anymore except maybe genetics or high school. Twitter is the opposite. It’s people I found because we had things in common and now I loves them.
  • My grandma. The single most important person throughout my life. She continues to simultaneously inspire and annoy the shit out of me.
  • My pets. Unconditional love is a good thing.
  • My job. I really do love it. A lot. My Students. This is related to the job. They are a joy and it’s so fantastic to watch them learn.
  • The Summer of 2013. For so, so many reasons. It was the summer of just fucking do it and so many wonderful and amazing things came out of it.
  • My House. It is my very own and I love it.
  • My best friend. To be able to snort laugh with someone, talk about your vagina, talk to your beer, and just know that other person will always be there for you is an amazing feeling. My friendship with @sarainthestacks is the first one where I have always felt like I can be myself and one in which I know she will always be there for me. Without her, I have no idea if I would have made it through the last few years (she would say I would have). She is the kindest, most beautiful (and completely naiive, haha!) person. Sara, I love you.
  • Kissing. Do I need to elaborate here?
  • Laughing. I did so much more of this in 2013. Thank goodness. It feels really good.
  • Music.  Beyond my completely healthy obsession with The National, I have discovered so much music that I love this year and well that makes me happy.
  • G and J. I love you both more than words. Thank you for forcing me to see the good in this world.
  • Books. I am thankful I’ve found my love of reading again.
  • My Resolve. I am thankful I found my happiness, changed my life, and remained strong through all of the ups and downs.
  • Cleveland. I love, love my new city and my home and if you don’t? Good. Because you don’t know what you’re missing and it’s still super affordable here. So stay out.
  • I am thankful for winery trips and baseball games (even ones that don’t happen), and museum wandering, hand holding, sweet kisses, cemetery visits, concerts, cooking, cuddles, Movie Dogs, wine (did I say that?), falling asleep on the phone, movies, PBS nerd outs, and the country of Wegmans.
  • I am thankful for The List.
  • Wine. Mostly just red. LOL.
  • D. I am so thankful for you. You make me think and smile every day. Always. Thank you for coming to Cincinnati with me and everything since. Well, and before. <3

Happy Thanksgiving, Internet. :) I know I missed things or people. For everyone who has been there for me, shared some kindness, tweeted cute pictures to me, or shared part of my life, I am thankful for you :)

    And I’m thankful you’ve allowed us into your life dear. I’m glad life is treating you so much better. One of the reasons I love twitter so much is people like you. Enjoy your Thanksgiving. Many hugs. XOXO
