Firstly, I just want to say Happy Thanksgiving everyone! When I was young I always thought thanksgiving was a fairly pointless holiday. Just an excuse for people to eat too much, and for me and my friends to play excessive amounts of video games (I remember beating FFX for the first time over thanksgiving one year).

But now as I’ve grown older (and hopefully wiser) I’ve come to the realization that thanksgiving actually does matter. It’s a good way for people to be explicitly thankful for the people and things they hold dear. With that it mind, I would like to thank my family for supporting me all these years, and my friends for sticking by my side, through thick and thin. It has been a particularly stressful last few months, and I thank you all for being there for me and helping me stay on track and not decay into misery and hopelessness. So here’s to the next ~40 days of 2012, lets make them count.
