What are you Thankful for?

So, today is Turkey day, and I thought it would be a nice topic to share things we are thankful for. I believe it is always a good idea to take some time and look at our lives and focus on the good things in them, so here I go:

My Family - I really have been blessed with a family that really cares for me, I would not be who I am today if not for them.

My Friends - I am very fortunate to have the friends I do, we are very close and would do whatever they could to help me out of a rough spot.

My Education - Yes, I complain about school and homework like everyone else, but truth of the matter is that a lot of less fortunate people around the world don't get a proper education, making it harder for them to succeed.

My Possessions - The things I own. I own a lot of stuff, more stuff than I need really. And I am thankful for it. Again, a lot of less fortunate people don't have stuff like 360's.

I have more, but I'll leave it there for now. What sort of stuff are you thankful for?


Let me tell you a little something about myself.
I love adventures. I love trying and experiencing new things, taking wrong turns, going on road trips with no destination, traveling to new places (it is my dream to see the world!), talking to strangers. I think adventures breathe new life in what could easily become a mundane existence.

So share some cool adventures you have had in your life!

I'll start:

Two years ago, me and a buddy of mine decided to take a spontaneous one day road trip. To Lumber City, Georgia. It is in south Georgia, at the time I was in north Georgia. Also, basically no one in the world (much less Georgia) has heard of Lumber City. We left in the morning, after our classes were done, and after a 6 hour fun filled drive, we accidentally drove through the town (That is how small it is!)It took us 20 minutes to realize we already went through it! So after backtracking, we finally made it.

Then it took us 8 hours to get back and I did not have time to do my Enviromental Science homework. Whoops!

Also, why Lumber City? We looked for the most random unheard of town in Georgia and made it our destination. There was NOTHING THERE.

There were many exciting things that happened on that trip, including almost dying a couple of times (scary!), but somehow we made it there and back in one day. Hurray!

So tell some of your exciting adventures. It can be anything that you considered to be one!
