So, allow me to tell you all what I’m thankful for in our time of need. I’m thankful for extended deadlines and reasonable grading by very nice and professional professors. Always be grateful to teachers who help you, especially when they don’t have to. This a university and a lot of people don’t necessarily have to help you as much as they do. So, at the very least be kind, fill out your course evaluations, and do the work!
I’m also thankful for professors who don’t make students come to class on the final day. As we get older we realize that time is money and I respect and appreciate people who do not want to waste the time of others. I’m thankful that should I be lucky enough to pass all my classes I may be on track to graduate on time. I changed my degree at the beginning of Sophomore year and didn’t do so well in a few classes and have been worried about it ever since. But it looks as though things may work out in the end.
I’m thankful for DeBlogs giving me the outlet to share my thoughts, feelings, and wisdom with anyone who cares to read it. I’m thankful for DePaul being the backdrop to my growth as a young adult into the real world. When things seem tough or hopeless, or you get plagued by negative thinking, try to remember what you’re thankful for and stay positive. The holidays are right around the corner, and everything will be okay in the end.
