10 Reasons to be Thankful for Post-Grad Life

This week was the 4-month anniversary of my graduation from college. While this new season has brought a lot of transition and uncertainty, I have also had numerous inspirations to celebrate this phase of life (students everywhere, take heart!) 
When I’m loving life, being thankful is easy, but the practice also helps dissipate melancholy when I’m not. So, because I need to remember, and because students everywhere need a reason to believe there’s life beyond midterms, here’s a chronicle of some things that have made these last 4 months good. 

Family

Sunshine and sand beaches
Time to read books I choose

Time to cook 
Time to write
Time to play
Time to stop and smell the flowers (occasionally)
Friends who are also family in Christ
That being old and graduated doesn’t mean I stop having adventures
And that the end of school doesn’t have to be the end of being a nerd.

Whatever your stage of life, what are you thankful for today?

  3. 1066 absolutely is about William the Conqueror! The poster is a visual history of English–one of my favorite nerd subjects. If you click on the photo, it should enlarge enough to give you the gist.
