Here’s the post you’ve all been waiting for: the one where I tell you all about my Thanksgiving break. Full disclosure, I’m listening to Christmas music while I write this. It’s officially allowed now.
Unlike many of my friends, I actually stayed in the Dayton area for break. This just added on yet another layer of relaxation to what was already a very relaxing break. I was able to do this because both my mom’s and dad’s sides of family gather in the area! My dad’s side lives in Xenia, all of a 15-minute drive from campus, and my mom’s side meet up at my grandparents’ house in Brookville, a measly 40-minute drive from my townhouse.
I spent my time this break relaxing around my townhouse, relaxing around both of my grandparents’ houses, relaxing around my aunt’s house, and … having a less relaxing time at Walmart for Black Friday. But, I got some mad deals so it was worth it. I also spent my time eating much too much food, including a total of something like two whole pies in a three-day period. Pecan pie is my biggest weakness. I also got some recreational reading done, something I never seem to have the time for during the school year, and played some video games, which is something I always seem to find time for regardless of what I have going on at school. Strange.
As I’ve written before (and as I said in the Cedarville Instagram story a few days ago … you did see that, right?) I appreciate my family a whole bunch, and they are usually what I’m most thankful for during Thanksgiving. This year was no exception. It was honestly wonderful to get to spend some time with my family.
I also brought my girlfriend along for the ride this break, and it was nice to get to spend some time with her as well.
All said, it was very nice to be able to get off campus a bit and spend some time with my family (even if I’m feeling the aftereffects of that pie now). It was also amazing to be able to spend some time relaxing. I hope you all had great Thanksgivings as well!
