Well, it is November...


  • Running water.
  • The abuelita at Wendy's that went to hand me my food, felt how lukewarm my fries were, threw them away and got me hot ones.
  • Teachers who look out for me and have my best interests in mind, even when I don't.
  • Insulation.
  • Teachers that give me second chances and allow me to turn in late work.
  • Teachers that are just plain inspiring.
  • Co-workers.
  • Family that provides and doesn't really care to know why.
  • Cleanliness.
  • Study buddies.
  • Genuine compassion and connectivity.
  • The countless on campus resources that assist me in my education that I am finally starting to find and take advantage of.
  • Words of the prophets.
  • A vehicle that runs, starts most of the time, smells nice, and doesn't lose a part every time it is driven.
  • Vine.
  • A computer that doesn't burn me from overheating, weighs less than 10 pounds, and doesn't sporadically shut on top of my fingers.
  • Food.
  • Pink freakin' Lady Apples.
  • Works of art that particularly touched me this year namely: next to normal, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Hunger Games Trilogy, Beasts of the Southern WildWonder, Rabbit Hole, and Ragtime
  • All of the books I had time to read over the summer, for that matter.
  • Endless opportunities.
