The reason for the ambiguous title is…it’s too long to fit AND look nice in the title box….so…here’s the title!
KBR Give Thanks x7 Challenge 2015 + 12 Days of Thanksgiving Tag (with pictures!) + Thanksgiving by Yours Truly + Achievement!
Now you see why I didn’t put the title in the title box, right?
Also, before I officially start, I want to say how excited I am for this post. I’ve already talked about it with several of my friends and have edited it into a million pieces…I’m just really excited…and I hope you are too!
~KBR Give Thanks x7 Challenge 2015~
Well…so this year I participated in King’s Blooming Rose’s annual Give Thanks x7 Challenge, as mentioned in my post at the beginning of November. The rules are simple- write down (or post) each day seven things that you are grateful for.
I enjoyed this challenge…at the beginning of the month I didn’t know much what to write, but then, as the month wore on, I started to realize that I could be (and was!) thankful about pretty much everything, even little things!
Here are some of the things I was thankful for this month-
- Food (there were many, many days when I mentioned “food” or types of food, such as “ice cream” or “apples” or “pizza”…yeah…I kinda like food. A. Lot.)
- Health (this was after a bout with the stomach flu…ugh!)
- A home
- Band (so, SO thankful for band…and the people who run it!)
- School (Yes, I’m thankful for that, too)
- Fuzzy stuff (yes, that was legitly on the list)
- and the list goes on.
This next half of the post shows you some more of the things that I’m thankful for!
~12 Days of Thanksgiving tag~
I was also nominated for the 12 Days of Thanksgiving (er…ahem…that is, I saw the tag and decided to tag along) by S.F at On Solid Ground. Here goes!
- List 12 things you are grateful for (pictures are not necessary)
- Tag as many bloggers as you can and want to.
#1. Jesus Christ
#2. Ice Cream
#3. Sweaters and Scarves
#8. Food…of course
#11. Friends (don’t you just LOVE Winnie the Pooh quotes?)
#12. Science, and Science Olympiad in particular
Oh, and I’m also thankful for Pinterest (psst…my Pinterest link is at the top right of the page!)…my source for these wonderful pictures. 🙂
Hm…I think I’ll just make these suggestions, instead of tags, so that people who want to do them can, but don’t have to.

What are you thankful for this month?
Here’s an odd Thanksgiving poem that I wrote.
Thanksgiving is a season of gratitude
It’s also more than that
It’s a season of messed up routines
Of stomach flu
Of so much sleep
And of oversized idiots tackling each other
Why can’t they each get their own ball?
Thanksgiving is an awkward holiday
Stuck between the start of school and Christmas
Gives people a false happiness of a break
But pulls away, with a teasing tone
“Too bad, you still have three more weeks before break!”
It symbolizes the start of Christmas
Goodbye turkey, hello Santa
Black Friday is also odd
People trying to get best deals
Buying things that will be useless in two months
A day to be greedy
And to get more things
After the day of being thankful for what you have
In all, Thanksgiving is a nice holiday
But it’s also an odd holiday
It’s a trailer for Christmas
An excuse for overeating
And for overspending
Come back and be awkward again next year.
PPS. I finished my 1st “official” NaNoWriMo!! (It wasn’t the full version, I only had 10K words as my goal…but it counts, all the same.) Now I have 20K of NaNoWriMo under my belt!
