Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
I wanted to write all about what I was thankful for, and frankly, there's a lot. I just don't know where to begin. Not to mention, I'm short on time as I have to leave for work shortly.
I still want to express my gratitude though, so I am going to list some things I am very thankful for this year. I'm just going to leave it vague and if someone wants an explaination, I will explain.
I'm not going to get into it too much, but I can't just leave it that vague. That's not how I am, and all I see is the cliches there. Okay, I'm grateful for my friends, and by friends I mean the real ones. I saw a picture on Facebook a few weeks back that said I only have 2- 4 'friends' and everyone else is people I socialize with. It dawned on me that was very true, and frankly, I have known for a while who my real friends are. They're always there for me, even though two of them live across the country. One of my friends has come through for not only me, but my family so many times and frankly, we've never had someone who would come help us when we really needed it. He knows who he is, and I cannot thank him enough.
Then for my family. I don't want to get into this much at all, because I feel like I might step on some toes with what I want to say. I will say this; I love my mom so much. She does so much for myself, my brother and my grandma and she might complain but she has full reason to. She never feels good, never gets enough sleep and yet still is constantly helping us out. She doesn't seem to realize how important she really is, and I really hope she one day does realize that.
Music -do I need to explain? Its still everything, its always going to be everything. It helps lift my mood whenever I need it to, and frankly, I realized this year that I do need to keep listening to it. Since I started working, I've found myself listening to music less, and watching more YouTube videos. Its nothing intentional, it just happens. I've also here and there found myself feeling slightly more stressed out or upset. I feel like there might be a connection between that and the music being there less. So, I'm back listening to it as much as I can. It varies with what might be on, but I have something on quite a lot. If its not on, YouTube is on. I probably should have added that I am very grateful for Wifi. I actually need it to live, I swear.
Which brings me to you guys. I'm always grateful for you guys, but that is because you're always there. Its flucuated a lot, but people have always been there. People have been very understanding and definitely supportive no matter what. Nobody minded when I got too busy to post, and everyone just said things like, "Take some time for yourself, we're not going anywhere." I'm not going to lie, it means more to me than I really can say. I've been far less active online than I'd like to be basically all year. At first it was because I was working so hard on getting Remedy X on Warped tour, and then I started a job at a retail store, and time just totally disappeared. Thank you for sticking around, I appreciate it a lot, and hope you guys know I am here as much as I can be.
Now let me explain the job, and why I am grateful for that. Not only am I grateful just to have a job, but I'm especially grateful for the fact that I have a job that I like! Not many people can say that, and frankly, I feel sucessful right now. I like everything I do with my life right now, between that, Immortal Music and all I do with Remedy. Plus, I like everyone I work with, which is a big plus.
My job has also given me something I actually decided was never possible. Its helped me fight my fear of heights. Its part of my job to get up on latters and put things away. I do it almost every shift, and before I started working there, some three foot step latters made me nervous. Now I can get to nearly the top of a ten foot latter and be almost okay, as long as I don't look down. I can even look down sometimes, and that's actually a feat. I'm proud of myself for being able to do that, because I really had decided I'd forever be terrifed of heights. Now, that doesn't mean I will ever be okay on a roof or something, but luckily, the chances of that happening are slim to none.
So there you go, that's just some things I'm thankful for. Thank you for being here, and for reading. Happy Thanksgiving. Also, before I go, calling it Turkey day is actually sort of weird. It dawned on me this morning that frankly, that sounds like its a holiday celebrating turkeys, when that's so not the case. I just had to throw that in there, and now I must get around for work.
