As a student at Texas A&M University-Kingsville, Thanksgiving has to be one of my favorite holidays. Especially since it’s gives us a chance to relax a bit before preparing ourselves for our final exams.
Thanksgiving for us college students is probably one of the best holidays that we get to have. We get to go back home and be with our family members and spend time with them. Some of us don’t get the opportunity to go back home often so thanksgiving break is a chance for us to go home and relax.
To me, Thanksgiving is all about being with family members and being grateful for all the things that I have been blessed with. Being a college student is a bit stressful with exams and assignments. To be able to go back home to be with family and eat amazing food is worth being away from home to pursue an education. When I go back home for thanksgiving I take the time to give thanks for being able to attend college, having a family to support me and being appreciative of all the friends that I’ve made.
My fellow Javelinas, take the time to give thanks for all the things that have come your way. Cherish the memories that you have and spend time with your loved ones to celebrate all the things that you’re grateful for. I wish everyone a safe trip back home and a Happy Thanksgiving.
