To say that I am beyond stuffed from all the eating I did today would probably be the ultimate understatement of the year.
Even though the food is always a big hit when it comes to Thanksgiving, it is never the most important thing. For me, it is a day to reflect on the things that I am thankful for, and a day to reflect on what has happened over the past 11 months.
I was talking to my friend tonight as we were working on dinner and we were telling each other what we were thankful for and I realized I have a lot to be thankful for.
First of all, I have a roof over my head and I am able to live in LA and pursue my dreams. I am also thankful for my family and friends that are there for me and support me in anything that I set my mind to.
I am also thankful for the job that I had with Wag for a few months. I may not be working there anymore, but my time there left an impact in my life and I met some pretty awesome people that have impacted my life in many ways.
I am thankful that I have good health. It may not be perfect, but it could be worse and I am thankful that it is not.
I am thankful for a certain someone who has been a positive influence in my life and helped me grow and step out of my comfort zone in ways that I did not expect.
I am thankful that I found my voice through writing and for starting my blog earlier this year.
And last, but certainly not least, I am thankful for all of you, my readers, who put up with me randomness and are there for me when I need to vent and voice my opinion on things. Thank you all.
What are some things you are thankful for?
So, remember me? I’m BAAAACCCCKKK, or at least for just this second. I haven’t updated in so long, but my crazy life in Hollywood got in the way.
I have some quick updates:
1.) The other week I had my Movement reunion. which was the program I was in when I lived in LA for the first time. It was so great to see everyone after 5 years. It is crazy to me how much things can change in that amount of time. I’ll probably write a more in-depth post about that later when I have the time.
2.) I get to see my family next week! I am going home for the 4th of July and I get to see my family for 10 whole days! I am so excited! However, I am hoping and praying that Oregon’s allergy levels for the pollen is down so I am not dying the entire time.
And most importantly:
3.) I GOT A JOB!!! Well, it’s an internship right now, but it has a very good chance of turning into a job! What are you doing, you might be asking. Well, let me tell you. I work with a startup company called Wag! and they are a dog walking app/company. They are basically the Uber for dog walking. If you have a dog and it needs to be walked, you download the app, schedule or request a walk for right then and there and someone comes and walks your dog. It is pretty genius if you ask me! I was going to help with their social media, but they really needed help with finding dog walkers so that’s what I do. I have always loved dogs and I am so happy that I get to work with dogs on a daily basis.
If I get quiet for a long period of time again, this is why. I am staring at my computer for almost 7 hours a day and when I come home, I don’t want to look at my computer anymore. Hell, I am so far behind on blogs it’s not even funny!
Well, duty calls in about an hour, so I should go, but I thought I would give everyone a quick update. Have a wonderful Monday and rest of the week everyone!
