So today is Thanksgiving (well it’s technically Friday morning now and I should be sleeping, but it still counts), and I was just thinking about the crazy amount of things/people I have to be thankful for right now in my life and I thought I’d share some. I feel like I am more thankful now for some of the things I’ve had for a long time than I was previously just because I know how blessed I am now. So here goes…

I challenge you, take yourself out of your comfort zone. Make yourself vulnerable to others. Be willing to open up. Support your friends. Show them that you really care. Be there. Love. It could completely change your friendships and relationships. I have so much more respect for both of those two guys now after that. And God was in every part of that situation.

First of all, this past week and a half has easily been the most stressful of my college career to this point. I had all sorts of projects and tests and quizzes, all of which I felt very unprepared for. However, I worked really hard, and I think I actually ended up doing pretty well on most of the stuff I had to do. My Financial Management class is looking like it will be the death of me though. I had a project due today in that class where a partner and I had to write a 10 page paper and give a 15 minute presentation after compiling loads of data and calculating ratios. Basically, that is the main reason I had no weekend! Well, that and the photography project, marketing test, and journalism article. Isn't it lovely when prof's all make everything due the same day! :) Let's just say I am more than glad to be done with the past week and a half.
When classes started this semester, I was really worried that I was going to be in over my head with my newly picked up graphic design major. Within the last few weeks though, I think it was a good decision for me. I am excited to keep learning about those sorta things and putting it into practice. I'm still not sure if I have the artistic/creative ability that I need, like my brother has, but I am hoping it will come as I keep working with it... Really hoping!
Conditioning for basketball is going rather well, other than having shin splints, which hurt like crazy! We are in our 4th and final week of conditioning, and we start actual practice on Monday. I am very much looking forward to that! Despite the fact that conditioning has been quite difficult, I have actually had a good time with some of the stuff we have done. For instance, one day, we all went to Columbus and went through the SWAT team obstacle course, which was a challenge, but fun nonetheless. Also, I have enjoyed taking on the challenge with my teammates. We all get along really well together and always have a good time with each other. It will definitely be nice to actually work on things with a basketball. Sweet relief!
