This thanksgiving break is a good time for us as students to take a step back from our busy lives and remind ourselves of what we are thankful for. As we are heading home for the holiday it is time to sit back and relax before finals week, which is quickly approaching. Personally I am swamped between school, work, clubs, and a social gathering that I forget that Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful.
This year I have reminded myself to give back to those that have helped me be where I am at today and I would like to thank the following:
My family - for always being so supportive and encouraging in anything I set out to do. Thanks to my parents who have raised me with proper manners and to respect everyone even in the toughest times.
Intramural Staff and Supervisors - for giving me the opportunity to enhance my work experience for my future career goals. Also for being a great group of people who get along as a family, and make the work environment a great place to spend time.
Soldiers and Veterans - thank you for fighting for our country and sacrificing your lives to serve for us.
WSU - I am thankful for the opportunity to come to college and earn a double degree, which I tend to put to good use and give back to our society in the future. Being a part of the WSU Cougar family means a lot and I am proud to always support the Cougs all throughout my life and help future Cougs along the way.
Friends - I am lucky to have a great group of friends who look out for me and are helping me succeed in my collegiate career.
I could go on and on with my new-found dedication to being thankful. This list represents just some of the things I am grateful for. I encourage you to take a break out of your hectic schedules and think about what you are thankful for. What better time to reflect during the holiday weekend with no classes to attend.
And remember to get out there and through the football around after you... [More]
