Today kicks off the holiday weekend and I can’t help but feel some type of way. Feeling especially thankful on this Thursday—and here’s why.
My sorority little: This sounds incredibly cliché (and TSM), but it is something I have been thinking about a lot lately. I can’t imagine my daily life without her. From venting, to asking for advice, to mentioning each other in fashion accounts’ posts on Instagram—we are in constant communication and I wouldn’t have it any other way. With my little I never feel alone.
Awareness: I am thankful I have the ability to feel so deeply, and to ultimately be aware. I wasn’t always like this; I think it definitely came with age and experience. I now know when something isn’t making me better and when to cut something/someone out. If something is not allowing me to grow and be better, there is no room for it in my life.
“Kim, there’s people that are dying” KUWTK Episode
Easily one of the best two-part episodes of Keeping Up—and thank God it was on TV yesterday. Chris Humphries, the most hated NBA player (ok, maybe it’s just me) gets to know the Kardashian family, and it doesn’t go well—because he’s just a jerk. Mason is a baby (squeals), Rob is angry, Kris is insecure about her body… the list goes on. However, the best part of these episode is when Chris throws Kim into the ocean and she loses a $75,000 diamond earring…then starts bawling. Kourtney overhears the chaos and is the voice of reason (for the first time to date) and yells in her monotone, extremely bored voice, “Kim, there’s people that are dying.” Such a classic Kim moment. How could I not be thankful for this?
Holiday Weekends: What is there not to love about holiday weekends? Family time, cookouts, babies, wine, fireworks, swimming, and of course desserts. I’m thankful for this time with my family and friends—a time to just enjoy each other’s company while we still can.
Uncertainty: The guest speaker, ESPN’s Rob King, at my commencement explained that this time in a graduate’s life is awkward and uncertain. Things can change at any moment. I am thankful for not knowing where I will end up. I am thankful for my friends who pass around my resume, and who are always rooting for me. I am thankful for the trips I have planned over the next couple months (Samantha in DC; EvStetter in LA) to get me where I’m supposed to be.
Okay– I’m done being sentimental. Have a great weekend, everyone! XX TB
