The Thankful Stormtrooper, 2012 Edition
|Click to enlarge for the full Stormtrooper Thanksgiving comedy.|
Welcome to my annual tradition of the blog version of that tradition some people have of saying what they're thankful for before they start eating. I did this for the first time last year and I'm doing it again this year; I don't know if twice is enough to count as a tradition, but, whatever, it's my blog, shut up.
Just to get this one out of the way, much like last year, I'm still incredibly thankful for John Jameson's wonderful creation.
I'm thankful for finally being able to say it seems like I have a job again (I say "seems like" because this is my life, after all, and I'm always waiting for the other shoe to drop, because it inevitably does, and it's always the most ridiculous shoe imaginable). Sure, it's only a temporary job, but it's something while I wait for something better, so I'll take it.
I'm thankful for the summer I had. As I mentioned above, the inevitable other shoe did eventually drop and it didn't end how I would have liked, but it was still a great couple of months, and I had more fun and was happier than I have in a good while now.
I'm thankful to be living in an apartment in a good neighborhood now as opposed to last year, as well as it being an apartment where I'm not the only one here to take care of my grandmother because, as much as I love her with all my heart, I don't know if I could have handled it alone.
Lastly, like last year, I'm thankful for my friends; real friends, I mean, the kind who are always there for you, who don't drop you like a bad habit or who aren't just friends in name and not deed. There are people who I wouldn't be able to make it through without. They know who they are and they know I'm talking about them.
That's it for me, folks. What about you, what are y'all thankful for?
