And thanksgiving is over. I went to my sister\’s friend\’s girlfriend\’s apartment for a \”large\” dinner. Mashed potatoes with gravy, 10-lb turkey and stuffing, candied yams, red white & blue vanilla ice cream, pumpkin pie, green beans, winter melon soup, cornbread. But almost everything was from a box. Nothing truly from scratch (except for the turkey and my sister\’s winter melon soup, but that\’s the way of a college student. We watched Before Sunset.
I am thankful for the path I have taken. Despite all the challenges I keep facing, there are always opportunities that I would not have experienced if I didn\’t make the choices I made. I am thankful for the fact that I chose a powerbook. I am thankful for the job I had in Berkeley that paid for that powerbook. I am also thankful for the ego that rescomp gave me that causes me to perk up (too much) when I hear any squeal of computer problems. I am thankful for the people I met, people I probably would have never met in any other context. All so different, and yet in some way, the same.
I am thankful for black friday. I am thankful that my sister and I are still in youthful condition so that we could wake up at 5:30 am tomorrow and still have a great day despite having so little sleep.
