Last week was Thanksgiving break! The time to go home, relax, and catch up on lots of movies and tv shows, maybe that's just me. I left Boulder when it was snowing and 12 degrees and headed for warm California. When I got home, I was slightly freaked out by how quiet it is. Even though it may seem weird, you definitely get used to living in a house full of 85 girls. I got to spend lots of time with my family and friends from home and got my fix of In N Out that I was missing from Boulder. This break, I didn't have to worry about homework which I was very thankful for! I successfully saw three movies and read 2 books, something that I can't always do with my busy schedule. I got caught up with doctors and dentists, that part wasn't quite as fun but just as necessary.
Thanksgiving Day was my favorite day of Thanksgiving Break. I got to sleep in and go on a walk with my family in the morning. And of course, watch The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade that no Thanksgiving is complete without. It was then time to cook! Since I have no skills in the kitchen, I was there just for company as the rest of my family did the cooking. We stuffed our faces with turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and tons of different types of vegetables. After the feast was over and all the thanks was given, it was time to watch Elf and put up our Christmas Countdown Clock. Some people might say that this is jumping the gun a little and that we should give Thanksgiving it's time, my family decides that once the meal is done it is time for the next holiday! Overall it was a great day and a great week. But after that much relaxation, it was time to get back to Boulder and get back to the craziness. Now I'm preparing for Finals with the rest of my friends and enjoying some much needed snow! I'm thankful that I have a place to come back to that I always look forward to coming back to school.
