|Anyone else drooling a little looking at this?|
It's the week of Thanksgiving, and I'm dreaming of turkey and lots and lots of pumpkin pie. Also, I usually like to spend some time this week thinking about the past year, remembering what to be grateful for, and what to think about for the coming Christmas season. (Because, I'll admit it, sometimes I need to be reminded this time of year--the holidays are waaaay too stressful!)
So, anyhow, this week I'm going to make it a goal to post (at least) one thing I'm really grateful for each day. Want to join in? Let me know in the comments and I'll link back to your blogs in my posts. And to make this a little more fun, for those who want to participate, and those that leave a comment, I'll pick one person for a 20 page critique. Sound like fun? I hope so :)
Okay, for this Sunday afternoon, I'm going to say that this year has left me really, really grateful to have finished my doctorate. It's still in the "pinch me, is this real?" phase, but I'm also really happy to just be DONE. That, and when I get emails addressed to Dr. Me, I totally have a little spaz moment. It was a lot of work, and sometimes with the job market looking the way it does, I'm not always sure it was worth it, but I am done, and no one can take that away from me. It's an accomplishment, and I'm happy to have managed it.
So, do tell, what are YOU grateful for today??
