Thankful!

I can’t believe it is week ten already here at DePaul!  Finals are already well underway at DePaul, and our winter break officially starts on Wednesday.  The past week has been filled with studying and writing papers, but this weekend I went to two Friendsgiving celebrations!  On Friday I celebrated with some friends in my sorority, and on Saturday my roommates and I hosted one at our apartment.  Both nights I was responsible for making apple crisp, which is my favorite fall dessert.  For each Friendsgiving, everyone invited was required to make an appetizer, a plate for dinner, or a dessert.  Surprisingly, everyone brought such great food and made everything from scratch.  Since DePaul is not in session during the Christmas season at all, I found it to be especially necessary for us all to spend this time together before the holidays.  
I am so grateful for all of my amazing friends I have met at DePaul.  I came here freshman year not knowing a single soul and somehow got to meet some of the best humans I know.  Both Friendsgivings I went to this weekend allowed me to look back on how I met each of my friends, and most of them were simply by chance.  Whether it be having a dorm room right next to my best friends, choosing to room with a girl I met through the DePaul Class of 2020 Facebook page, or simply meeting someone through a friend of a friend, I am so happy to have all of these wonderful people in my life.  What are you grateful for? :)
