I'm thankful for all of my wonderful friends and family, I'm thankful for my bed and house (essential when you're home with a cold), and I'm thankful just to be alive and breathing (even if it is through a stuffy nose ).
Introducing- The Geek Tutorial! The new informational webseries on computers and the geekiness of life.
Screw eHarmony- I met my soulmate at Star Trek: The Experience.
Random funny exchange from Star Trek: The Experience:
BF: "If you take any photos on the attraction, we will shoot you with a phaser."
Guest: "On stun?"
Me: "I wouldn't trust him."
I'm thankful for being able to go to college. I'm the first child in my generation to be able to do so, and actually only the second member of our family in its history to attend!
I'm going to Chapman University as an undergrad. I'm thankful for my $13,000/year scholarship. I'm thankful for my $8500/year CalGrant. I'm thankful that these scholarships and grants have afforded me an opportunity to go to a school that would have otherwise been outside of my means.
I'm thankful that I'm able to major in graphic design and advertising, which is really my passion. I'm thankful that my mother let me pursue an art education instead of business school, knowing and trusting that I would succeed with the passion and I drive I have to work towards my dreams.
I'm thankful for the home that I live in. It's big, and in a beautiful neighborhood in a town that's part of another town, in a place that many people have never heard of. It's quaint, it's beautiful, and I wouldn't trade my town for anything.
I'm thankful for all of my "things". My computer, my iPod (which I am paying for myself with hard earned money), and my car, even when it is unreliable. All the clothes I've been able to buy, all my pretty shoes and haircuts and things I do to spoil myself. Even if they are selfish, I am thankful for these things.
I am thankful for my job at the Disneyland Resort, where day-in day-out I able to contribute to the magic of Walt's Park. Even when it is hard, and even while I suffer through "presenteeism", I enjoy my job. Maybe not every moment, but overall, I love it.
I am thankful for my health. It's something that I shouldn't take for granted. I have stretched myself thin this semester, taking 30 hours of class a week, working 25 hours a week, and commuting 10 hours a week. I thank my health for stickin' it out. Three more weeks, and you can get sick again, body!
I am thankful for my dogs, who love me no matter what. They love me even if my boyfriend leaves me. They love me, even when I forget to bring them in the house until after dark. They just... love me.
I am thankful for learning about the joy of independance after being alone for the first time in almost four years. That I don't have to put all my hopes for the future on a single person. That doing so can cause more heartache and grief than anything. It's easy to be co-dependant, but so much stronger to be able to function on your own.
But most of all I am thankful for my mother, who I gave so much trouble growing up. Now I appreciate her more than anything. She is my rock. She supports all of my decisions, even if she knows that they are bad ones, and she lets me make my own mistakes, and helps me to learn from them. She is beautiful and harsh and independant, and the best mother I could have ever hoped for.
So Happy Thanksgiving everybody. I hope that you all have something to be thankful for.
I am thankful for my health, the love of my friends and family, and I am thankful for MiceChat ... just as good as a therapist but a heck of a lot cheaper!

I am thankful that after a festive day of excellent food, I am able to sit down and relax at the computer. I am thankful that after less than an hour at the computer I am 3-5 items away from completing my Christmas shopping!!!!
I got the in-laws list today (my fam is already done). I now only have a couple things to get for 1 of my sister in laws and 1 thing for my m-i-l. My f-i-l was MIA (had to work), so his list was missing. hehehe This just means I can get him something tacky. I gave up on getting The Boy Moon Shoes, so I have 1 thing left to get him (but it is for his Birthday so it doesn't count).
