What’s up world? Its your boy Peekay. Hope you all enjoy Thanksgiving, as we are on the south side of it now, as it’s Black Friday. I want to talk about my Thanksgiving and then some thoughts about Black Friday. I got to tell you that Thanksgiving 2015 was one of the best ones ever. First, I got to have family and friends together and we could joke and talk about many positives. Additionally, I realized how great I have it living in freedom, living a life where I can chase my dreams, have a roof over my head, great family and friends I can count on, and I have all the necessities I need and more. We joked, played video games, and watched football. Last, but not least my man Ed Hochuli was officiating today. Ed great job and I am thankful that with all the officiating issues today, you keep your optimum officiating up! All my favorite things all in one day!!!! Also we shared what we were thankful for and how great we have it. When you focus on the positives, the atmosphere becomes more positive and tension is diffused. So instead of stress about the negatives, we put that aside and enjoyed our company with great food cooked by my folks.
After Thanksgiving, chaos resumes with Black Friday and Holiday pressure. I know lots of people shop and that’s cool, but isn’t it a little too soon to shop after being thankful for everything you have. I’m not saying don’t shop, because we deserve great things, but I’m saying don’t act all crazy when you don’t get the deal. Instead of shopping and mixing in with the masses, I suggest that you go out and enjoy nature. Today, I did my homework to chase my dreams and then hiked 5 miles today at Lake Needwood and ran into an old high school buddy, Paul. Best of luck to ya man! In my hike, I could feel Thanksgiving continue and think about how I am going to successfully navigate the end of semester craze that awaits me when I return to St. Mary’s Sunday. Also I thought about the holidays and the unnecessary hatred and animosity that I see. Enjoy yourself and spread your responsibilities out and allow yourself some free time so you can recharge.
Good luck on your projects and finals, before the holidays and Happy Holidays to everyone.
