Things I'm Thankful For

'Tis the season to be thankful on the most gluttonous day of the year! Instead of listing things I'm thankful for on this day, let's discuss some things I was thankful for this year.

My first professional internship

My first few months of the year were spent frantically trying to secure a summer internship because I felt even though I was only a sophomore I was severely behind. Wish I could've told myself to calm down, it would be alright and you'd get an amazing internship. Regardless, I got one and I'm so grateful for that experience!

ZTA Historian

Recently I was just elected as the upcoming ZTA Historian. This role combines my passions for social media and for this incredible sisterhood, and I'm so excited to get started! Follow us @onuzetataualpha! 

Hot sauce

I truly discovered my newfound love for hot sauce this year, and what an odd thing to be thankful for, right? No. It's the smallest things in life that mean the most. Okay, but seriously have you tried hot sauce? Delicious. 

My grandparents 80th birthdays 

Both Memaw and Pop-Pop turned 80 this year, and that was a big deal for all of us! These youngsters continue to love each other and all of us and I am so incredibly thankful for all they do for us! Here's to the next 80, because these two MUST live forever. 

Picking up a new hobby

This summer I took my hard earned money and invested in a nice camera that I pretend to know how to use. It's taught me I love taking pictures of other people (in the least creepy way) and it's nice to have another creative outlet. 

Returning to Dirty Myrtle

This summer I got to travel with my Zeta family to the beautiful South Carolina for a sunny vacation beside the beach. One of the best vacations I've ever had, and I loved spending it with two of my favorite people in the whole world. 

My health

Ironically, I'm writing this as I'm coughing up a lung BUT before this I've had pretty impeccable health this year, minus that one double ear infection. I'm reminded every day by death and illness that my health is something to truly be thankful for. 

Double decades

Your girl turned 20 this year, and making it to double decades is a true accomplishment. Only 8 more months until I can finally shop at Forever 21!!

"Rush Rho Gam"

They say your friend group has peaked the moment you coin a name for yourselves. Actually no one says that, because we ARE the best and frankly if we've peaked already I'd be shook. Very thankful for these weirdos. 

A first place Greek Sing win

As the Greek Week delegate this year and a proud participant of Greek Sing, ZTA took first place this year and nothing made me happier. 

Finding my confidence

I wrote a blog post about insecurities, please read if you haven't yet! This post sparked something within me and lately I've been more confident than I ever have before. 

This year I have a ton to be thankful for, and even more to look forward to. Thanks to anyone who had a hand in making this one of my favorite years yet, here's to 2018!
