Thanksgiving Break — Finally Some Relief

Turkey. Cranberry sauce. Gravy. Stuffing. Gobble gobble.

Thanksgiving break’s coming up shortly, and many of you will be returning to your families. For those that aren’t, we hope that you will be able to spend time with someone who you can at least tolerate. For those that are, “tolerate” may be the appropriate word to use when talking about your family.

Home-cooked meals. Not cafeteria food. Not fast-food. Something that your body won’t try to rapidly expel from you.

It’s time to take a break from school if you can. If you can’t, and your professors assigned projects for you to work on, I’m sorry they’re bad people.

It’s important to note that this break is just as important for your family as it is for you. It’s hard to think that this may be just as rewarding for them as it is for you, but most of the time it is. Try not to shut yourself away in your room, playing video games. Don’t put your headphones on and ignore your mom and dad when they talk to you.

They’re going to be dead someday

Not for awhile though, probably. I mean, they’re probably going to live to, like, a hundred. They’ll always be around. Four more generations of children will eat their Thanksgiving turkey and pie. Bad things don’t happen. The point of this is to remind you that Thanksgiving break is as much “them time” as it is “me time.” It’s hard to remind yourself that you’re actually a joy to be around, so enjoy the time you’re around them like they enjoy the time around you.
